Change the story (II)
Several examples are presented in this section of how other teachers changed their stories and improved their emotional experience as a result. Take a look at the video to learn about three mechanisms. In order to explore these transformations in more detail, we have included an article that explains the transformation of two teachers.

Take a look at these stories:
|Teacher: Sometimes it happens to me that, well, some situation that I tell someone off once, another time… and well, when someone misbehaves and I have to tell him off, there is a student who starts laughing, he thinks it’s funny that I have to scold his classmates, and that, well, it makes my blood boil even more. I ask him, “Why are you laughing? Do you think it’s funny that I’m shouting here and we have to stop the activity?, because I don’t think it’s funny. Well, these things, I feel that he doesn’t care that I get angry, like he doesn’t give a damn about that…||Support: well, come on, now let’s think of a situation in which, which doesn’t have to be yours,ok? Let’s imagine, let’s…. I mean, it could be, I don’t know, from a movie you have seen, from a friend who has told you how she sees it or whatever, in which you see a student laughing when a teacher gets angry, gets serious… |
Teacher: Yes that has happened to me, sometimes I want to be angry with them but the disruption is something funny and the kids are laughing too, so it doesn’t bother me. I mean, I want to show that I’m angry but it’s a funny situation. A child who has said a funny swear word, and you want to say, “You can’t say that!” and when you get serious, they laugh too, but in this case, they laugh because they are having fun, it means complicity.
|Teacher: a lack of respect… for example, this child, who I have not asked him anything, nor have I request him anything and he interrupts, that is, he interrupts to say something silly, and this makes me even angrier, because it is to say something silly, to make a joke, to make the others laugh, which does not contribute anything to the class||Support: What could be happening to this child to cause this behavior? |
Teacher: Well, maybe… it could be that this child has low self-esteem and that’s why he needs to get attention. Maybe he interrupts to seek recognition from his classmates because he has low self-esteem. It is true that if I see it that way I would not feel it as disrespectful.
