The Marks of a Good Teacher

Teacher have their own strengths to share in the teaching world they are into. They’re uniqueness can sometimes be to their advantage and disadvantage at times.

At a certain point in time, I wonder what a good teacher. And here’s what my inner thoughts have to say:

  • A good teacher never forgets that it is her learners, not the program nor the kind of school that determines the achievement of a teacher.
  • A good teacher establisher clear expectation from the very start of the year and consistently monitor it as the year progresses.
  • A good teacher manages her classroom thoughtfully and when she says something, she means it.
  • A good teacher exactly reacts on point when a student misbehaves.
  • A good teacher has one goal: to keep that misbehavior from happening again.
  • A good teacher has high expectations for his students, but has even higher expectations for himself.

Teaching may not be the best profession here on Earth, but in my mind, it is the very foundation off all the existing professions around.

Without us as mentors, who would ever be a professional for that matter?

Behind that doctor is a teacher.

Behind that lawyer is a teacher.

Behind an educator is a teacher too.

Behind those lawmakers are teachers.

Yes, we may not be of high salary…

Admittedly lives in an ocean of endless debts…

But with much pride, we hold the torch and keeps the fountain of knowledge flowing.

Many times, what people need is not a brilliant mind that speaks, but a special heart.

Your principles and core values may be at times tested and put into shame…

BE STILL, because you know who you really are. YOU ARE A TEACHER.

In essence, a good teacher does not only educate the minds of his learners… But most importantly, a good teacher educates the heart of his learners.

Content knowledge may sometimes be forgotten but good behavior and thoughts anchored in the correct values in life never fades away.

#Proud to be a teacher!
