So what are the qualities to make a great teacher?
Lessons are well planned and teacher is organised.
An enthusiastic and passionate teacher will engage and inspire students in their subject.
This will earn students respect and will get students to make progress in a lesson.
When students can speak and know they will be heard and respected by the teacher and students it will create an environment where teaching and learning occurs and students will feel they can ask and enquire.
If the students do not get something the teacher will adapt other strategies.
Communication is vital for the student to understand and improve. Communication is vital for parents so they can support the child. Communication is vital with colleagues as collaborations is important, feedback is taken in a positive manner and the right information is passed on to students.
