Good Teacher

A good teacher has amazing communication, listening, collaboration, adaptability, empathy, and a very high level of patience. Effective teaching also includes an engaging classroom presence, a value in real-world learning, the exchange of best practices, and a lifelong love of learning. Working as a teacher often entails working effectively in a group, from practitioners and teaching assistants to other classroom teachers and school leaders. It is also critical to maintain an inquisitive mind and learn from other educators. Effective teachers must be able to work in a constantly changing environment and adapt their teaching techniques based on their students’ ages, available resources, and changing curricula, practices, and requirements. Good teachers are also very engaging with their students.
