The teachers I admire most are those who remain intellectually curious and profesionally vital inside and outside the classroom. They avoid stagnation at all costs and maintain an enviable passion for children and the learning process. They remain vivid in the students’ memories forever because of their compassion and creativity. I had such a teacher in my school days . She was my science teacher who always took little more efforts to make sure we understood the concepts,by displaying a practical or live model or by employing different more methodologies .
Her compassionate approach towards the students made her build a good raport with all of us. In my experience ,such a teacher was not only able to ensure that we grasped the essentials of the subject,but also encouraged me to explore more details on the learning. Good teachers know that by listening to and working with colleagues, parents and other professionals and community members that they can inspire students and improve their learning . Planning a particular lesson with an awareness of the objectives and conditions is very much necessary .
To be an effective teacher,one has to teach well. Also,he/she needs to be a good communicator not only with the students but also with co-teachers and parents. Non-verbal communication is of considerable importance for teacher-student interaction . It includes gestures,head movements,eye contact,facial expressions ,tone of voice ,touch and even silence. The ineffective teachers on the contrary do not seem to play any role outside the classroom. Their teaching is very much resticted to the contexts and such teacjers inhibit themselves from extending support beyond the class.
Also their lessons are very poorly planned and they fail to collect a proper feedback from the students regarding their understanding on the lesson. They fail to create a non-threatening and welcoming environment for the students,eventually they dont succeed in building a good rapport with them. Just as an effective teacher could change a child’s life for the better ,weak teaching can also have a profound and long-lasting effects on the child’s life and his/her interest towards the particular subject.
