If you ask a student what makes him/her successful in school ?. Most of them will give credit to their teachers. What students gain from a successful education institute usually centers on a personal connection with a teacher who instilled passion and inspiration for their subjects. It's difficult to measure success, and in the world of academia, educators are continually re-evaluating how to quantify learning. But the first and most important question to ask is : ARE TEACHERS REACHING THEIR STUDENTS ?.
Here are few things successful educators do differently to create a connecting link between students and them.
CLEAR OBJECTIVES : In the world of education, your objectives for your students acts as a road signs to the destination. Your plan is the map.
SENSE OF PURPOSE : Teachers with a sense of purpose can ride above the hard and boring days because their eye is on something further down the road.
JUST GIVE THEM THE BEST : In teaching profession, you must have patience.
LEARN THE ART OF LISTENING : A teacher who never listens to students will ultimately fail.
EXPECT STUDENTS TO SUCCEED : This concept is similar for parents as well. Students need someone to believe in them. They need a wiser person to guide them and believe in them.
SENSE OF HUMOUR GETS YOU CONNECTED : Humour and wit makes a lasting impression. It reduces stress and frustration, and gives student a chance to look at their circumstances from another point of view.
BE JUDICIOUS WITH YOUR PRAISE : Students need encouragement, but it does no good to praise their work when you know it is only 50% of what they are capable of.
Students deserve your love, your care, your patting, your attention, your support, your appreciation and above all your presence as a TEACHER.
