As a nurturer teacher type, you are a warm security blanket for kids to come to, offering comfort amid the chaos of the classroom. Sometimes, they’ll look to you for advice or a shoulder to cry on. Most often, they come to your classroom knowing you’ll always bring kindness, understanding, and a close-knit classroom community. By nature, you’re a careful listener and caring cheerleader.
Personality Pitfalls: Your nature is to nurture, which makes it hard for you to practice tough love. You’re a giver, but you have to set boundaries and remind yourself, “Don’t be a pushover.” If you give them all an inch, some may take a mile. If you’re too consumed with charity, you might find your kindness mistaken for weakness.
