Hi, I'm Laura from I'm going to talk about how to keep teachers motivated. Some of the important ways that teachers are motivated are of course, financial incentives. So there's been a lot of discussions recently in 2007, the 2007, 2008 year. Especially about incentive pay. And how to fairly use it. Some teachers unions are very against it. And it goes back to, if it goes back to standardized test scores or grades achievement. Because it's not a very appropriate way to measure teacher achievement. Because you never have an equal distribution of students who have achievement levels. So that's a fairly controversial way to motivate teachers. But there are some other ways. Professional development courses, things that, opportunities for teachers to learn more. Advance their career. Supporting them in providing them little perks like social situations. Or even dinners or lunches that are provided for them. It can help to motivate them. Building a collegial environment where they share information with each other. And have a dialog with each other. Where they have an opportunity to meet on a regular basis. And talk about new methods or techniques or books. Professional development, topics and books. Or just providing opportunities to travel to conferences or to visit other schools. So those are all opportunities that can help keep teachers motivated. Outside of financial incentives.
