This essay will discuss communication as being a fundamental part of the early childhood teacher’s role. Educators will communicate with many people during the course of their day. Developing positive relationships through open communication is a strategy that will benefit teachers, parents and most importantly, their students. Teachers must establish limits and expectations for students, not only in the classroom, but within individual lessons. Behaviour management is an essential skill that will be utilised regularly and will require a teacher to develop strategies for dealing with a variety of behaviours.
The students build knowledge, gain skills, and widen the habits of mind. In parallel, the teacher understands how to utilize instructional strategies that encourage student learning. The teacher also knows that students' domains, physical, social, emotional, moral, and cognitive development, impact learning and recognizes how to deal with these aspects when making instructional decisions. Finally, the teacher is knowledgeable of likely developmental advances and scopes of individual differences and can identify levels of readiness in learning, and knows how development in any one area may influence performance in others. All dispositions work together in an effort to produce optimal learning environments that are supportive of student learning and development.
Teachers generally need to know how to prepare lessons, activities, and how to manage and organise classrooms. To add, teachers must know how to use a broad range of teaching and learning strategies to help the students to be interested and to learn appropriately. Effective strategies of teaching should be assimilated with knowledge to ensure that it is taught effectively. Teachers need to provide care for the students by providing them with an encouraging, comfortable and safe classroom atm... ... middle of paper ... ...he student’s school journey and to be remembered by students as a valuable teacher is beyond rewarding.

Introduction The statement ‘Teaching – reflections, questions, decisions’ sums up what it means to be an effective teacher. Teachers are constantly making decisions about professionalism and ethics, teaching strategies, classroom management, and how to keep their students motivated. These decisions can have a major impact on student learning and how effective they are as teachers. Questioning is an essential—and one of the most important—instructional skills that a teacher can possess. Teachers need to be able to ask the appropriate types and levels of questions, such as the high and low order questions based on Bloom’s taxonomy, as well as being skilled in responding to students answers.
Effective communication creates a learning environment where students can learn according to their individual needs in a safe and accommodating environment. Think about your early childhood education (or your child’s early education), was it flexible to suit individual learning experiences or were children required to conform to the teacher’s methods of teaching? If you answered the latter, do you think the former would improve the quality of education? Pedagogues’ in all divisions of education should possess proficiency in different levels of communication, whether they are teaching primary or secondary students or university alumni, to be able to address a combination of the various age groups (colleagues, students, parents or superiors). Educators will face difficulties in providing a satisfactory level of education without the necessary skills to communicate effectively to these groups of people.
The economy is also interplay to the educational methods and attitude of the teachers in my country. Teacher identity is one of the important details for education, because I believe teachers are a role model for the students/children in many other ways. Research shows again and again that children are using the similar action as their teacher while they play (Gloria Latham, Mindy Blasise, Shelly Dole, Julie Faulkner and Haren Malo... ... middle of paper ... ...ated fund of knowledge of the teachers, good theory practice, and a good foundation of the curriculum.

Lesson planning is a map to student learning, the resources teachers use influence student learning. For this reason, it is important to understand how to evaluate instructional material. There are many things to consider when choosing material resources this paper will examine the importance of the design, procedures, clarity, and efficiency when choosing lesson plans. When choosing learning resources teachers need to ensure that all students feel valued, and supported regardless of their cultural and linguistic backgrounds. It is also important that materials chosen will help all students succeed in school regardless of their abilities, backgrounds, cultures, or linguistic differences.
Relevant (QSA, ACARA,) documents highlight the importance of educational systems lifelong learning this is where students grow not only in knowledge but to become independent of the teacher. Therefore teacher supplied-feedback should give way to self assessment and self monitoring. Some of what the teacher brings to the assessment act itself must become a part of the curriculum for the student. Sadler The validity of student relative teacher judgements in assessment has been explored by many researchers and reported in the education literature .In large part student peer and self grading works best when students share a comprehensive understanding of the assessment criteria and the characteristics of work illustrative of different levels of performance. Boud describes the characteristics of self assessment as the involvement of students in identifying standards and or making criteria and making judgments about the extent to which they met these criteria and standards.
