These days, there are numerous schools around the globe and the schools all need teachers and not just teachers but good one. To get a job as a teacher depends not on how much you really know but depends fully on how much you can really teach. To be A good teacher you should have the ability to impact the lives of your students. That is what I am going to teach you today.
Being A Good Teacher.
For one to be very good in teaching there are certain things that should be considered, read through as I am goin to point out those things below.
Have personal interest in your students.
This is a quality that is very lacking today among teachers. Teachers maltreat students and this makes the students hate the teacher and his/her tutorials. You see that almost every teacher comes to class with cane as if they are rearing animals. Desist from this act if you want to succeed as a teacher. Treat the students as you’d treat yourself. I know you can never flog yourself for not learning a thing so why would you flog your students for not also learning a thing? Having personal interest in your students will help you to calm down and teach them humbly and it will yeild great result.
I remember how our teachers rush to cover their scheme of work when I was in college. They do not teach you to understand but they teach and rush to make sure they’re follwing up to the scheme of work and this was very devastating to the students. And to the teachers, they were tagged “Irresponsible”. I know you wouldn’t want that for your student and yourself. So calm down and teach to impact knowledge and not to cover material.
The worst thing that can happen to you is if you do not know what to teach. I remember when a techer in our school taught us through his Google. He browsed the topic, and read it directly to us from his phone. We used to laugh at him then and if do not know what to teach, you might also be laughed at by your students. To rememdy this, you need to study hard and read widely because your students might ask you a question on a field you don to specialize on. Study hard and see yourself excelling as a teacher.
Get Good Night Rest
Have you ever heard of a teacher sleeping in class? Sounds funny though. What do you think can lead one to sleeping in class? Well, getting a good night rest is very necessary because it keeps you refreshed the following morning to face the stresses that follows teaching.
Remember Dressing And Grooming
Look nice, Iron your clothes, comb your hair, polish your shoes, brush your teeth, cut your finger nail. This is what you should teach your students and you yourself should pratice it. Don’t dress and groom to attract the school managements wrath and don’t dress and groom to incure the laughter of your students.
