More and more students who graduate the Faculty of Letters and should become teachers choose to work in any other field of activity, except for their own. Why does this happen? Aren't they meant for becoming a good teacher? What are the tips that make a teacher a good one?
On the one hand to a teacher is equivalent to be an example of patience, hard working, devotement and altruism. If you know you have just a little bit from these qualities, then everything will turn out just fine. If you are the kind of person who gets upset in two minutes, who can't stand to repeat the same thing over and over again, then you have to reconsider the idea of becoming a teacher.
Teaching means above all being able to make your students understand the meaning of education, of s
elf-control and of learning by your self. It's not enough to come to school, listen to the teacher, do your homework. It's much more than this and it's quite difficult to accept that your teacher is always right and you are wrong. Getting along with your pupils, becoming their friend is another tip for a successful career in the domain.
Still, this is a dangerous road as pupils may cross the line and may see you as their equal, thus forgetting about responsibilities and duties, always thinking the teacher wouldn't mind as he is their friend. Discipline and respect should be gained not imposed because everything that is made with the sense of having to do it won't last for a long period of time as pupils get sick and tired of the routine.
A stiff, serious preoccupied teacher will always be forgotten by his pupils, while a detached, charismatic one will be the favorite one. If these qualities are accompanied by a good sense of humor and fair play then this successful recipe will surely make your students come to classes.
If you are inventive, you have your classes always using new attractive teaching methods, your rise their interest and you'll have a 100% attendance to classes. Your students and their level of training are your marks in this "competition" of the best teacher.
Children are so accustomed to having everything they want that they come to criticize even your smallest mistake so the best solution is to cautiously prepare your lessons so that you don't are obliged to face the unpleasant situation of not being able to answer their questions.
