Qualities of a Good Teacher

Techniques or Methodologies to be followed by a Good Teacher:
  • Wear a smile on your face.
  • Be firm but nice to you students.
  • Meet deadlines to avoid unnecessary stress.
  • There may be students who are just beyond control. Slip into their shoes and handle them with patience not with wrath.
  • Do not abuse or hit students when they misbehave. It’s difficult to do so but it’s very important for you to be looked up to.
  • Do not talk much/extra. Maintain your gravity.
  • Your appearance as a teacher matters. Wear decent dresses; avoid wearing too many bangles, rings, nail polish, long ear-rings, strong perfume, flashy sandals that make noise when you walk. These are distractions for students when you teach.
  • Know your subject well. Students of this era are computer friendly. They will squeeze out your knowledge in seconds.
  • Be confident. It’s not possible to know everything. If you feel you do not know the answer to a question thrown at you, admit it and say that you’ll get back to them with the answer the next day. Do not falter.
  • Make your students believe in themselves. Show them that you trust their abilities.
  • Most importantly, love them.
  • Teaching is a noble profession. Let it remain so. Every teacher likes to be remembered and honored by his/her students. It doesn’t happen overnight.
