Great Teachers

If I am going to teach I want to be the best I can be!

Instructing others is much more than presenting information.

Found this brief article that contains a list of characteristics of a great teacher. These 9 points are valuable guides as you reflect on your effectiveness as an instructor

 A great teacher:

  1. respects students
  2. creates a sense of community and belonging in the classroom
  3. is warm, accessible, enthusiastic and caring
  4. sets high expectations for all students.
  5. has his own love of learning and inspires students
  6. is a skilled leader.
  7. “shift-gears”and is flexible when a lesson isn’t working
  8. collaborates with colleagues on an ongoing basis.
  9. maintains professionalism in all areas
