THE IMPORTANCE OF SELF ESTEEM FOR LEARNING
Given the fact that I am a teacher I had the urge to do this, with help from Google of course.
Self esteem is a feeling which comes from an awareness of what is good and having done it. It is our self concept. It builds strong convictions, it creates willingness to accept responsibilities, it builds optimistic attitude, and it leads to better relationship and fulfilling lives. It makes a person more sensitive to other’s need and develop a caring attitude. It makes a person self motivated and ambitious, it makes a person open to new opportunity and challenges; it improves performance and increase risk taking. It helps one to give and receive both criticism and complement tactfully and easily.

Children learn what they live. If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn; if a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight; if a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate; if a child lives with shame, he learns to feel guilty; if a child lives with encouragement, he learns confidence; if a child lives with fairness, he learns justice. Teachers, know yourselves. Be aware of the prejudices, assumptions and emotions you take with you to the classroom. Remember you are the grown up.
