is not easy to become a teacher. Teacher must have characteristics for become a real teacher.
First, They love their subject and have excellent subject knowledge. Good subject knowledge matters not only because at top of the ability range you need to be able stretch pupils but also because teacher with good knowledge tend to make lesson more interesting. They have more substance to be interesting about.
Secondly, they need to have right personality. Teaching is partly acting, and acting ability helps greatly. Above all you need to be able to control a class, because without good discipline nothing worthwhile can be achieved.
But the bes teacher are not disciplinenarians. They are a velvet hand in an iron glove. Pupils come to know, over time, that they are warm and generous. But they are not to be messed with. Discipline has to come first.
Good teacher are able to manage strees. They are highly organized.
Finally, they need to have high expectation of their pupils. This is characteristic of all the best teachers. They are determined that every pupil will master their subject. This attitude setd the scene for everything which follow.
And one more thing that is most important of all is “do not underestimate to your student”. Because you are a teacher who must teach and your obligation to make him smart.
