Teacher Resume TemplatesA teacher is a person that provides education for your children and guides them, from kindergarten through college. Their main objective is to provide the children with the knowledge they need in order to help them become strong, independent people with successful careers.
Although some people might think it is a very easy job, in fact it is very hard. First of all, and most importantly, you have to practice a teaching method that children respond to, especially with toddlers. Make them think that are playing instead of studying, that there is no homework, it is just fun, and always reward them for their accomplishments.
Every person who wants to become a teacher, except from going to college, has to take a class called "Educational Psychology", in order to know how to behave in different kind of situations, with different students. There are many methods of teaching, and every professor uses the one which he finds most appropriate. Of course, they have to respect a schedule, not teach whatever they want. There aren't few cases when a student doesn't assimilate the lesson only because of the teacher. Especially old professors are not very receptive to the new teaching methods, so they continue doing it the old way. That means they come to class, and start talking about a subject, in fact dictating, and students have to write down the lesson and then learn it by heart. This method is often called "the parrot method". That means that they have to learn, word by word, everything the teacher is saying, and then they have to repeat it, like a parrot. This method is very useless, especially because they learn in "the nerdy way", meaning that after presenting it to the professor, their mind automatically sends the information to the recycle bin, forever. As you can tell, it isn't a very efficient method, because at the end of the day, the child will know..nothing.
So, there are some qualities a teacher must have. First, he has to have great pedagogical skills, but also communication skills. Every teacher has a "least favorite student", that always causes him problems, because students nowadays can sometimes be a pain. But he has to be patient and learn how to deal with him, and very important, to be calm and respectful, but let him know that he, the teacher, is in charge.
Nowadays, there are so many interactive teaching methods, that even the most stubborn kid should be receptive to them. You can use audio materials, or video, tapes or movies, diagrams and games, Internet, so that children will pay attention and will find it to be fun.
Also, it is very important to treat all your students equally, to show them that they are all your favorites. You must make no discriminations, not only because the students will reject you, but also because you might get in trouble with your superior. And when in comes to grading, make sure you are relative, fair, but also indulgent. Always encourage them to do better next time, and explain that the grades are not the most important thing; what counts is the knowledge they gain on the long term, because when attending a higher education, or even a job, everyone is interested in your skills, not your average grade. It can be a gruelsome task to have all your skills mentioned effectively in the resume. This page here can help you with creating a resume that can clearly emphasize on your skill-set as a teacher.
The new generation needs teachers that are capable to give the children a good start in life, because in a few years, they will be our leaders.
