Do you practice any of these habits? What are some that you could add? Some are tricky for some teachers. Getting to know my students can be hard, due to the nature of my job…but I’m doing my best with almost 500 kids. I never choose favorites, and NEVER praise one, without praising all. Some, just a few, go to other english schools and speak up during my lessons. I know from past experience, this can cause fellow students to eventually wait for that person to answer up first…which is a sign of lack of confidence in themselves. I will say one thing…you can certainly grow as a teacher, as long as your class grows with you.
