How to be a Great Teacher
The teacher appreciation week aimed to give teachers the honor as an attribution to their noble work, which means that the student’s perception both personally and socially shoulders a big responsibility for them as the mentors. It relies on their hands how the young students become what they are and/ or what they can be.
To this extent, teachers are practiced at getting across even in the hardest concepts. If you are a teacher, you have to exemplify good actions so that your students will follow, but unless you are capable of influencing the behavior of your students in a positive approach.

The “classroom” is the 2nd dominant place where an individual develop his/ her knowledge, skills, and values significantly. And being a teacher, you are entitled to manage to have a harmonious atmosphere in the classroom.
