How to be a Good Teacher

Steps to Success in Being a Teacher
 
Be Here Now:
 
Learn to be where you are when you are there.
Remember that our minds are designed to save us
from what might happen in the future based on
what has happened to us in the past.
 
Be on Time:
 
 Time is one of the valuable assets we have. Be on
time, but dont be controlled by it. Remember that
we should be the ones telling that thing on the wall
(clock) what to do. So many people operate with the
clock and time as their master. We should be the
master of time. Plan your schedule to let the clock
work for you not against you.
 
Be Friendly:
 
Have your honor always be bigger than your mood.
You can do this by knowing what is important at all
times.
 
Be Polite:
 
Treat your students and others as you would like to
be treated.
 
Be Prepared:
 
 Dont do things without a plan. Take the time to
plan your work and then work your plan.
 
Be a Listener:
 
 
Learn to listen without any intention to reply. Learn
to take instructions. A good teacher must be a great
student first


Be a Doer:
 
 Remember this: Knowledge is not power. It is only
potential power. Knowledge and action is what
power is all about.
 
Be a Tough Worker
:
 
Know what you have to do. Do what you have to do.
Measure your progress. Qualify your actions based
on feedback. Do it again and again.
 
Be a Risk Taker:
 
Stand tall and stick your neck out. Believe in the
gift that you are and the difference that you make.
 
Be a Success:
 
 Sometimes you can do everything right and still not
feel like a success. At times like this, look at
yourself, not the way you do things, but who you are
while you are doing them qand ask yourself this
question: "Who do I need to be to feel success?
