In my mind, the first and most basic obligation of a teacher is to see the beauty that exists within every student. Every child is infinitely precious. Period. When we start from this vantage point, classroom management and its flip side, student engagement comes more easily. It's an outgrowth of students feeling loved and respected.
The question of what makes a great teacher has been around for a long time. It’s an enquiry that poses many problems because there’s simply no set recipe for success, and different approaches work for different professionals and students. Here are some points to take away:
Effective teaching requires well-rounded instructors who are confident in the material they teach as well as their own skin. Students have a keen ability to sense if a teacher is nervous, unsure or lying. Being genuine is one of the most important personal characteristics that a teacher can possess. There are other personal and professional characteristics as well that are necessary for effective teaching.
Like doctors, social workers and many other professionals, teachers have to maintain ethical standards. Codes of ethics often cover teachers' professional obligations towards students, parents, colleagues and themselves.
