Teaching is rewarding and requires various skills and attributes that are necessary to be an outstanding teacher. First, I believe you have to have a passion for working with students. Students can be challenging because they are maturing, have not experienced the fullness of life, and are developing coping skills to deal with relational challenges in lieu of school. An effective educator, teaches the whole child so they must balance the educational expectations and the daily demands of relationships with peers. Students need to know you care and that opens them up for learning.
