Teachers Skills and Obilities
In that sense, we are going to identify the teacher's workplace skills which refer to, as an English teacher, how can we behave in the learning environment and which kind of conditions are necessary to have about their job promotion. We can define many different abilities for teachers. However, talking about the most important rules for teachers to do their work with the best path. First of all, patience is a very crucial point because in teaching they must control themselves even if they are frustrated and disappointed in the class environment. For example, although you teach the students the subject of passive voice, nobody answers your question. You must repeat the same subject twice the time. Secondly, another main point is that enthusiasm. They had better be dynamic and energetic because sometimes some of your students have a lack of self-confidence. As a result of this situation, students gain self-esteem about taking part in any class activity. After a while, they try to speak, read, and write English at least in the basic way. Thirdly, a teacher must be open-minded. This is the core structure to create respect and trust between teacher and student relations. For instance, as an English teacher, while teaching a lesson particularly from the book, we come across different kinds of subjects. Besides that, imagine that you are a teacher in a foreign country, you also have many pupils who come from a different region, race, ethnicity, gender and so on.
