    Flexibility: You should be comfortable in creating a fine balance between leniency and strictness in classroom.

    Style: A teacher is a role model of many students and hence, having a good personality is very important. It includes dressing sense, presentation and mannerisms.

    Humor: Unlike teachers of yester years, you need to interact with your students in a lighthearted way. You need to be friendly. Sometimes, cracking harmless jokes is required. But again, you must use your discretion to judge a particular situation.

    Care: You should be caring and loving towards kids. It will help you understand them and accordingly, teach them.

    Leadership: Since you have the responsibility to mould the youth of today into confident and responsible citizens for tomorrow, you first need to inculcate leadership qualities in you. You must know to make utmost use of the available funds, resources and manpower.

    Teamwork: For a good teacher, it is a must to be a good team player also. He or she should work in collaboration and coordination with seniors and juniors.

    Interactivity: While you are in the classroom, do interact with students. Don’t let your classroom slip into a monologue. It will create boredom and subsequently, defeat the very purpose of teaching.
