There are some common characteristics that successful teachers share. To being a successful teacher there are six key steps and each one of them has a great influence. Every teacher can take benefits from focusing of these important qualities. As in most areas of life, success in teaching depends almost entirely on your attitude and your approach. Sense of humor is the first and most important thing for everyone who wants to teach successfully. It can help you a lot to achieve your goal to be a successful teacher. It also can relieve tense classroom situations before they become disruptions. A sense of humor will make class more enjoyable for your students and possibly make students look forward to attending and pay attention. Most importantly, however, a sense of humor will allow you to see the students joy in life and make you a happier person as you progress through this sometimes stressful career. The second step is the positive attitude, because it is a great asset of life. You will be thrown many curve balls in life and especially in teaching profession. It will help you cope with these in the best way.

Successful teaching

High expectations are very important for everyone who wants to be able to practice successful teaching. You should strive to raise the bar for your students. You will receive less effort in case you expect less effort. Also you should work on an attitude that says that you know students can achieve to your level of expectations, thereby giving them a sense of confidence, too. This is not say that you should create unrealistic expectations, but they will be one of the key factors in helping students learn and achieve. Consistency is the forth key step in successful teaching. Your students should know what to expect from you each day in order to create a positive learning environment. You need to be consistent which means the creation of safe learning environment for the students and they will be more likely to succeed. The fact that students can adapt throughout the day that range from strict to easy is amazing. They will dislike, however, an environment in which the rules are constantly changing. Fairness and flexibility are the last two key steps to a successful teaching. Many people confuse fairness and consistency. A fair teacher treats students equally in the same situation, while a consistent teacher is the same person from day to day. Students complain of unfairness in cases when teachers treat one gender or group of students differently. One of the tenets of teaching should be that everything is in a constant state of change. Disruptions and interruptions are the norm and very few days are typical. A flexible attitude, however, is important not only for your stress level but also for your students. All of them expect you to be in charge and take control of any situation. If you follow these six rules, soon you will be a very successful teacher.
