So enjoy reading our top 10 tips on how to become an effective, caring teacher: 1) Consistency. Set routines for your students early and stick to them. It will make classroom management easier. 2) Take time to get to know the children. Play an ice breaker to relax both you and the children. 3) Remember: you teach people first and your subject second 4) Chalk &Talk: What matters is that children understand and not that the text book has been covered over the course of the year 5) Plan. Be organised and you won’t be caught off guard, or find yourself rushing around minutes before lessons start 6) Take care of yourself. If you aren’t healthy then the class isn’t either 7) Fight for your profession. Teachers have a hard time. Fight for learning in the classroom, don’t be afraid to advocate what you think is right for your students. 8) Have fun. Don’t let the paperwork get you down and don’t let the teacher persona hide who you really are from your students. Pupils crave genuineness so be yourself. 9) Give yourself a break. Switch off from school life, don’t agonise over allowing yourself some you time. 10) Ask for help. It’s ok to ask for help and admit you need support; it will make you a better teacher.
