It is important to know what you want to do as a teacher and how best to do it. Roger Smith, author of Effective Teaching explains how to be assertive and confident

Teaching is not just about natural gifts that you either do or do not have. Some teachers seem to be naturally gifted but they have probably just never stopped learning how to be more successful, and they probably have a clear idea of what kind of teacher they want to be.

It is a good idea to begin each day by asking, ‘What kind of teacher do I want to be today?’. And then repeatedly ask three simple questions that don’t necessarily have very easy answers:

  • What am I actually going to do as a teacher today?
  • What will the children do in my lessons today?
  • What will the children learn?
