Effective Teachers

7 Habits of Highly Effective Teacher

 

Prominent management guru, Dr Stephen Covey in his highly acclaimed book, ‘7 Habits Of Highly Effective People’ stresses some principles for personal growth, which are meant for life in general, a life that is beyond those monotonous office desks and business graphs. The seven habits mentioned in the book including being proactive, putting first things first, think win-win are some from the lot, are surely the standards to a complete, successful life. Now, this makes us wonder what can be the habits that make a great and effective teacher and after much research, we bring to you some habits that are surely the traits of an effective teacher.

Read on to find out what are those habits that can make you a good teacher:

1. Never stop learning:

A very important sign of a good teacher is the urge to learn. An effective teacher must never stop from gaining knowledge. Learning from time to time is a good idea not only to improve your knowledge base but also know a student’s perspective. Being on the other side will help you get a good understanding of the learning process of your students.

2. Bring some fun into the classroom:

A little fun added to the class acts as rejuvenation from tedious class work and this is like stress-reliever for students. Moreover, a lively teacher is always loved and admired by students. So, don’t miss the chance of being a favourite teacher to your students.

3. Sense of purpose:

Everyday routine might be mundane, not just for you, but for all. Whatever happens, don’t lose your sense of purpose that will make your road smoother in future. When you have that purpose right in front of you, those difficult boring days will be easily passed by.

4. Regular communication with parents:

A good and successful teacher will never duck from the idea of proper communication with parents. A parent has every right to get information about the ward and it is the duty of teachers to make communion with them and throw light on the student’s activities. So, regular communication with parents is a must-do.

5. Go beyond regular curriculum:

Go out from the regular routine of class work and homework. For an altogether good and completely new experience, let your students think and act differently. Like, after giving your class, some lectures about the World Wars, you can definitely let them go through some war-related movies or talk to ex-servicemen. These extra-curricular activities will engage more attention and excitement from students.

6. Be open to new technologies:

With the present environment where technology has completely influenced education in all possible ways, there may be new tools introduced in the school curriculum. Be open to changes as these new innovations such as Fedena which is a popular school management software is something that’s going to make roads smoother for young students in future.

7. Believe in students:

Believe in your students. Yes, you need to believe that they will succeed and just see the high motivation in them to do it. Create an environment where your students won’t be afraid to fail and set them a bar to let them work hard and achieve it.
