Shubhen’s Answer

In my opinion, the very first thing which one has to think about is, your liking teaching field. You need to give deep thought about how you will be living life as teacher. How much time of yours you can engage in this as full time / part professional. If you are ok with these questions, then I could see some of the trail mails where are some more skillsets which are required like communication skills, explanation skills and conflict resolution skills, the quality such as patience, understanding others point of view, tactfully reason out other argument, so that you can explain the actual knowledge with hurting anyone's feelings. The knowledge of human psychology is preferred though not mandatory. It will make your life easier as teacher.
MOST IMPORTANT:
Excellent mastery on the subject which you preach, as you need to be aware of latest happenings that area as well as if you are able practice what you teach then it adds 10 times more to your teaching Carrer than anything else.

jody’s Answer

There are many different skills that are required to be a successful teacher- however it may look different in every classroom as we all bring our backgrounds and personalities to the career- which is what makes it so special. However, I feel there are a few staples for becoming successful as a teacher. 1. Time Management: You will need to fit many different topics and core instruction into a day with MANY interruptions- managing all the different plates that are spinning is very important. 2. Classroom Management: Running a room with rules and boundaries is so important- it allows students to accomplish the needed tasks in a safe and structured environment. 3. Flexibility: Day to day things will come up and you will need to roll with the punches and keep instruction moving. 4. Care and understanding: A love for children and an understanding for their unique situations and personalities. 5. Love of learning: Keeping up with new programs, trends, new ideas, learning from others- teaching is a career you will constantly be learning.

Taylor’s Answer

From my experience teaching the best skill is to connect with your students. A lot of students have to trust you and trust that you care about them before they are able to receive educational content from you. Find their interests, and be real with them. The further you get with that, the more they are receptive to your teaching.

Michelle’s Answer

Having a passion for the students will be the most important aspect of teaching. When you have that passion, and genuine interest, everything else will fall into place. Focusing on student needs will bring about growth that can't be found by simply focusing on standards.

As far as day to day, being organized and having time management skills will be critical. The book, "The First Days of School: How to be an Effective Teacher," by Harry Wong and Rosemary T. Wong is full of great information to start the year off right. I also really liked, "Punished by Rewards," by Alfie Kohn.

As a teacher, you're also a life-long student. Each year you are faced with new sets of students, parents, and possibly coworkers. Being willing to continually study and seek out answers to interacting with those around you, will be important.

Michelle recommends the following next steps:

Think about what subject areas you like, and whether you'd prefer teaching one subject, or multiple. That will help narrow down what type of teacher you want to be.
Look for opportunities to volunteer in schools, if permitted. This will help you to see if being in a classroom as a teacher is a good fit.
Find a school with a great education department that helps place you with partner schools for Student Teaching.

Mike’s Answer

I would say there are a few key areas to focus on to be successful as a teacher.

1) Communication skills. This is going to be really important since not everyone learns the same. You need to be able to teach a full class that reaches all types of learners. I myself am hands on when learning but some can learn just by listening. Be able to reach both and bridge the gaps. You'll also need to build a good relationship with parents/guardians as well.
2) Organizational skills. Have your lesson plans in order, and are all your papers graded and ready to hand out, and all your assignments ready to go.
3) Conflict resolution skills. Kids of all ages get into conflicts and will look to you to help resolve it. A level head and active listening will help you do that.
Good luck with following your aspirations!
