1.Successful teachers have clear objectives
In education, you need to have clear objectives for your students. You need to plan, making a plan does not suggest a lack of creativity in your method but rather creates a framework in order to flourish.
2. Successful teachers know when to listen to students and when to ignore them
A teacher that is capable of listening to his/her students will ultimately be more successful than a teacher who never listens to his/her students. A teacher who knows when to listen, adapt and when to be assertive is a teacher that will be there for the long term.
3. Successful teachers have a positive attitude
Good teachers have an upbeat mood, a sense of vitality and energy despite setbacks, as positivity can breed creativity.
4. Successful teachers expect their students to succeed
Students need someone to believe in their dreams/goals. They need a wiser and older person to put stock in their abilities. Create an environment that shows them it is okay to fail to motivate your students to keep trying until they have exceeded your expectations of them.
