Teachers generally need to know how to prepare lessons, activities, and how to manage and organise classrooms.

Effective communication is one key element to being an efficient teacher. Communication can be verbal or non-verbal. Communication not only between your students but also the parents, your colleagues, and the community. It’s fair to say we communicate in our everyday lives, so it makes sense we use the same principles in teaching; to establish good relationships and trust. If we are more engaged in our students’ home lives and interests, we are going to understand and achieve great relationships.
Last but not least it is very important for teachers to make their students feel like with instructional and emotional support from their teacher that they will not fail. In the first article “The Journal of Educational Psychology” states that teacher-student interactions are very important and can change a students path in achievement. They suggest that when teacher-student interactions take place in a positive matter whether one on one, small groups, or the whole class, that these teacher-student interactions deliver the students with the correct support needed for their learning potential. Also, these positive interactions then can help set the student up for other positive paths in the classroom. Examples of these interactions are categorized into three realms of support: emotional, organizational, and instructional.

Whilst in the class room it is up to the teacher to accommodate for students differing motivational influences. The teacher’s responsibility is to provide an environment that enhances students’ motivation to pursue academic goals actively over a long period of time. A teacher is as effective as the plan they undertake to teach and learn. In determining what constitutes an effective teacher specific consideration should be given to various areas that encompass effective teaching and learning such as knowledge of child development, planning, teaching and learning strategies and knowledge of Curriculum content. Teaching and Learning Strategies: Intrinsic and extrinsic motivation: There are two main motivational influences intrinsic and extrinsic motivation.

An educator uses a variety of teaching strategies which includes classroom management to ensure that the purpose of education is achieved. In this paper, I will demonstrate the responsibilities, knowledge and skill required of an effective professional educator. Review of literature: A professional educator creates a positive learning environment that is conducive for all the students in the school. To do this, an educator must understand the principles of classroom management and employ these strategies as they interact with the students. The educator applies classroom organization skills to monitor the students mental, physical and social growth.
Like it was mentioned in the article, communication is the foundation to all areas of development when it comes to learning or life in general. I couldn’t agree more! As teachers, we serve as a role model to the children in our classroom. They watch us and take note of how we deal with arising problems. That’s why it is important that we set a good example at all times and also practice our own communication skills.
The essential goal of education is to give children the knowledge and means to entire the workforce and achieve success (Carmichael, 2009). It is important as teachers that we welcome the diverse needs of all students. While it is fundamental that teachers are well-informed on the content they are teaching and are responsible to guide student learning, there is much more to emerging student learning. To develop students’ education, schools should provide a structure of classroom communities conductive to learning. School environments must be respectful, caring, stable, and stimulating atmospheres in order to enhance the learning environment.
