Welcome to our first
ever Summer Camp for Educators:
You-Can't-Give-What-You-Don't-Have Summer Camp - A Special Course on English Proficiency and Communication Training for Teachers and Educators.
So why is it called "You Can't Give What You Don't
Have" Summer Camp? As educators, whether we're teachers,
managers, supervisors, business owners, leaders, and public
officials, we will always be imparting our skills, knowledge, and
wisdom to others. However, what we have isn't always
enough. In fact, we sometimes don't have it.
Just because we are now at the level or position to lead or teach others, it doesn't mean that we are truly capable of the responsibilities given to us. We hide behind our positions, and we use our status, to complete our tasks, failing to recognize that we are not giving our students and employees the very best.
How can we give (skills, knowledge, wisdom) when we don't have it in the first place? This summer camp starts to address the issues involved. It begins with the most basic skill that all educators should have: communication, with English as the primary medium. How do we communicate to our students and employees in the most effective manner? How do we improve our conversation fluency and public speaking skills so that we become the most effective educators?
Teachers should be the role model. How can a student become a leader, a successful entrepreneur, a visionary, a change agent, or a professional when the teacher him or herself is not leading by example? This summer camp will discuss these issues and how you can become the best teacher/manager/educator you can be.
