What can I say? Deuce is still alive so you have no choice except to read this blog or I will chase you to death by leaving constant comments on your page reminding to read it (that was supposed to be a kind of threat).
So guys today I'm going to share with you the most cherished secrets...shhhhhh...just don't tell anybody...
secrets how to be the best teacher of English in the whole world of all ages and all climes for ever and ever.
Hey! Passionate and devoted English learner! I know you want to ask me a very good question right now in a very polite way: "Why on earth I should read this?I'm not a teacher" but don't haste to leave...a surprise is waiting for you.
So be attentive as usual but don't skip sentences and don't even try to fool me by reading just the beginning and the ending and leaving a casual comment. Read every word or you will miss something very important. Don't forget that I'm keeping my sharp eagle eye on you!
Okay, my tips! Don't even think: "Finally she stopped talking"... I know you are very inquisitive and impatient so here we go...
The greatest 7 secrets for teachers to become a good teacher and for students (yes, exactly, that's my surprise for you) to become a good student:
You should be confident of your knowledge, show your students that you know the language perfectly. Even when somebody asked you to explain the meaning of "Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis" (by the way, don't look for this word now, find it later, now just finish your reading) don't give way to panic, just make a very sophisticated expression and under the pretext that you want to teach students to search information themselves, just say :"Good idea! Thank you. It will be your homework". Now you can say "Phew!Evaded (at the same time relishing the look of your student's sour expression).
You should be confident during the lessons or lectures no matter what.
Even when you are too busy at the lesson having a debate with your friend over a very important topic (your favourite animated cartoon) and the teacher warns you and reproaches you for bad discipline...No way! In the most convincing way tell her that you were listening very attentively and it's she who was talking.
2) Endless energy.
Never show your students that you are tired even when you can't talk just give them a test and enjoy the silent rustle of your students cheating.
Even if you spent the whole night at some club dancing, eyes are half closed you are so sleepy and there is a very important test waiting for you to be taken...cheer up!
That's what you should do...
Relax, you will pass it later. Just make sure you have a good rest as your health is more important.
3) Endless patience.
No comment, just a picture...
That's a very good way to calm yourself down! Well, yeah.Good luck!
You think you are fed up with those "senseless" continuous assignments? You think they will never end? Well...you are right. So mate, just pluck up your courage! Look at the teacher...she or he is already desperate thinking that by writing all those things she will calm down. Poor thing!
Be always enthusiastic of what you do. Assure your students that English is the most important thing in their lives.
Never, under no circumstances show them the following...
Have you read the above information? So, never believe a teacher!
You know, a teacher is like an actor, she or he should play constantly (hiding her real feelings, emotions, tiredness, anger and so on and so forth) but do you know what is the difference between the two professions? The actor is just playing but a teacher should play and teach at the same time. Hey, hey, don't assume too much and pack your things and go to Hollywood! Just read my blog.
Well...what can I say? If you are are a talented actor you will get through all the exams and quizes.
Be creative...hmmm...errrrrr...oops...I ran out of ideas.
That's the right example for you: you should never say this, you should say :"I'm always full of new ideas".
If your little head is full of creative ideas just relax and enjoy the process of learning.
When you are asked to solve the mathematical equation and the teacher told you that you did it in a wrong way just tell her that it's a unique way of solving it and contrived solely by you.
7) Good, very good health.
Dear teachers! Take care a good care of yourself and don't let your students stress your brain too much.
Sorry if I'm late with my tips and you are already in a mental hospital.
You really should be very healthy.When sitting at the desk nervously fumbling the paper and answering some strange questions you have no idea of or learning and cramming all night long before the exam, make sure you take some medicine or you will end up in a hospital with a heart attack.
Good luck my friends! Just love what you do and you will not need any tips for a great success!
