3. Just Be Yourself
Cliff Ravenscraft, a business and motivational coach, has a video on his Facebook page about impostor syndrome and he encourages those who have been feeling like a fraud to know who they are, what they have experienced, and to recognize their future goals—simply, just be themselves. Teachers are certified in their field, they have knowledge and experience, and have a lot to offer to their students. Trust that you are doing your job in the manner you think best, not like that nice Mr. Brown, or strict Mrs. Jones, but in your own way. The students in your classroom benefit from you being you. Every day.
