Share your work
Top teachers enjoy their work and love to share their knowledge and expertise. Sharing your work with others can open the doors to constructive criticism that can improve your teaching strategy.
Know your place of work
Whether it be school, college or university, top teachers know every aspect of where they work and collectively they will work with others to create an environment where knowledge blossoms.
Top teachers recognise their workload and priorities accordingly. Recognise procrastination and adapt accordingly.
Teachers who love what they do show high levels of enthusiasm and this is reciprocated by the students. Don’t take yourself to seriously, enjoy what you do and others will enjoy what you teach!
Don’t make excuses
Don’t make excuses for either yourself or others around you. Challenge yourself and set yourself goals to ensure you keep progressing. Teaching is learning for both the teacher and the student.
Make an effort
Whether it be knowing everyone’s name, treating students once in a while or going the extra mile every day. Make sure students have reason to respect you and see you as approachable on a personal level.
