11 Habits of an Effective Teacher

11 Habits of an Effective Teacher
Carrie Lam , Academic Director, Teacher & Workshop Leader, Canada Posted 07/05/2014 10:12AM | Last Commented 08/12/2016 7:57AM I really appreciate teachers who are truly passionate about teaching. The teacher who wants to be an inspiration to others. The teacher who is happy with his/her job at all times. The teacher that every other child in the school would love to have. Teaching is meant to be a very enjoyable and rewarding career field (although demanding and exhausting at times!). There is a saying, "With great power, comes great responsibility". Bring positive energy into the classroom every single day. This is the fun part and absolutely important for being an effective teacher! Whether you are delivering a lesson, writing report cards or offering support to a colleague - give 100%. Never fall behind on the marking or filing of students' work. Create standards for your students and for yourself. In life, things don't always go according to plan.
