I can categorically say that I have taught in the last 10 years. This puts me in a situation that am able to assess some of the mistakes that most teachers do including myself that makes us regret after retirement or harshly judged by the community. They are common though but if you are a young teacher, please avoid these mistakes if you can.
1. Investing in liabilities rather than assets
Most teachers, including commerce and Business studies teachers have a problem when it comes to investing. In most cases, teachers invest on liabilities which they call assets but eventually makes them poorer in long run. Robert Kiyosaki author of "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" defines an asset as anything that you acquire that puts money into your pocket. Assets are what the rich use to generate wealth over time.
A good house, A car, a microwave, expensive phones and an idle plot are not assets unless they are used to bring an extra coin into your pocket. Young teachers should therefore learn to invest on assets rather than liabilities. You won't find this definition in a business classroom.
2. Not keen on students homework
