Teaching Tips
Be prepared. Have a well-thoughout plan in place and know what procedures you will use to implement that plan. Will you lecture? Will you have handouts? Will their be class interaction? To what extent will the students be involved?

Teach creatively! You don't want your students to be bored to death. Think of ways to make it fun for students to learn. You can use humor, props, guest speakers, field trips, music, pets, etc. The sky is the limit.

Cut off bad behavior from a student IMMEDIATELY! If allowed to persist, it will not only be disruptive for the whole class but the perpetrator will provoke others. Take swift and immediate action by following though with consequences for their actions.

Treat your students with respect. Do not lead military style. Show your students that you care for them first and foremost. Compliment their achievements and let them down softly when they've made a mistake. Think about how you want to be treated when you learn from someone. That is how you should treat them.

Be the expert. That's why you're the teacher. Know the answers to their questions. If you don't know them, you should not be teaching! At the very least; if you find yourself ill-prepared for a certain class, do everything you have to do to catch up to where you should be as fast as possible. Not only do you not want to be "blind, leading the blind" but you're very job could be at stake if word gets out that you don't know what you're doing.

Immediately earn the students names. Study their faces, their style (clothing, hair, posture, attitude, etc.) and visualize the information relating to their style through association. For example; if the girl in the front row with the black hair and the white make-up makes her look like like something out of The Living Dead and her name is Diane, associate the word "die" (because she does look dead right? ), with the name "die ann"

Challenge your students to really "learn" the material, not just "memorize" it. The key to learning is to internalize it so that the information is useable later in life. This is where your skill as a teacher comes in handy. If they simply forget what they've memorized after the test, have they really learned anything? Was it a big waste of time?

Try to make the information relevant to your students. If you are teaching history, teach your students the lessons that were learned in the past and how this affects the present. If you are teaching math, find an everyday practical application for what you are teaching to show your students why they should learn this.

If you are a new teacher, find a mentor teacher. If your school does not have a program of pairing established teachers with new ones, either make the connection yourself, or suggest it to your school. This helps both teachers have good school years. The established teacher will have a lot of lessons that have worked in the past, and the newer teacher will have a fresh outlook on things.

As a teacher you also have to have a good relationship with the parents of you students. Make sure to keep them in the loop of what is going on in the classroom. This will help them to help their children with homework and projects at home. Keep an open line of communication with them.

If you are a new teacher, be sure to make friends, or at least maintain cordial relationships with, everyone who works in your school. This includes secretaries, cafeteria workers, custodians, etc. You never know which custodian may come through for you in the clutch if a student vomits in your classroom! Also, secretaries have to handle a LOT of work between their regular duties and any other favors teachers need to have done.
