I’m always looking for ways to improve my teaching, so that the students in my room get the best learning opportunities possible. I read the article 6 Traits that Help you Become Successful Teachers. Am I a teacher with these traits? I would like to think so. I would agree with all the six points shared. In the trait ‘raising the bar’, I’d go so far as further defining that as raising the bar for one’s self as a teacher. This could be described as seeking out opportunities to improving your own pedagogy through for example, professional development and extra study. And raise the bar by taking risks with new ideas, and be innovative. This way everyone in your classroom benefits. What traits do you think make a successful teacher?
