How to be the best teacher you can be

Teachers are needed more than ever in the current situation and this has led many teachers to have to think very carefully about their careers and what they want to do when things start to return to normal. It may be that they want to progress in to a role with more responsibility such as a head teacher or head of year.

Teaching is not an easy job and over the past few years, more and more tests and processes have been introduced meaning that the job is probably even more stressful now than it has ever been.

With this in mind, it is important for a teacher to learn year upon year to allow them to save time and also manage the classroom in the best way possible to allow them to achieve the level of education they need to deliver and to get the students to the standard they need to be at.

It is important to review your own performance. Make a note of what lessons worked well and what didn’t as this information will help you over the next few years when it comes to lesson planning.
