Teach English in Renyi Zhen - Chenzhou Shi
There's no doubt that the quality of educational process significantly depends on the teacher. And therefore the teacher plays the leading role here. So, what are the qualities that a good teacher should have? There are many of them. First of all, in my opinion, it's the personality of a teacher that has the main impact on the way he/she leads the educational process. Such personal traits as confidence and self-perception, emotional control, creativity, сommitment and determination make a good teacher in the first place. A teacher can have a good theoretical knowledge about teaching, have a great variety of teaching aids and equipment, but without any of these personal features he/she cannot become a good educator. Next important attributes would be communicative and management skills. It's very important for the teacher to set a good connection with the students from the first lesson and maintain it throughout the entire course of education. It's hardly possible if the teacher is a secretive and insensible person. As teachers we should establish a good rapport with our students, get to know them better, not only as students but as people as well, always be opened for communication, find individual approach to every particular student. And we need management skills in order to organize our teaching process. It's a good thing when a teacher has a good understanding and feeling of which is necessary in some particular situations - whether to be a controller, a monitor, observer or maybe it's the time to participate in some lesson activities as an equal. It's greatly important for teachers not to just to conduct a lesson but to feel the class and have a good perception of what's exactly going on in the classroom at any particular moment. And this brings us back again to the importance of setting a good connection with the students and the teacher's communicative skills in general. And of course another important point here would be theoretical knowledge and ability to implement this knowledge. It's crucial for teachers to know how and when to apply certain methods, which way would be the best for the students to get the necessary information, and how do we achieve the general goal of certain task, exercise or the whole lesson. With all these numerous traits and qualities being a teacher might seem quite a hard thing to do, it requires a lot of patience, time, hard work and a great resolve in order to become a good teacher. But when we learn how to combine all that together and get the desired result it becomes the most rewarding and satisfying job ever. Because a true teacher is always concerned and dedicated to what he/she does and finds a great gratification seeing the pupils succeeding in what have been given to them. And the main mission of a teacher is not just to convey certain information to their students, but to inspire them to develop and become better. And finally, teachers are the people who give us something that never can be taken from us - the knowledge.
