A good teacher must project authority in the classroom, be knowledgeable in their subject area, be well prepared, and be able to pass on knowledge in a manner that is stimulating to the students. The schedules, lesson plans and assignment strategies must be set at the start of the semester, and students should know at the start what is required to succeed. My core teaching value is, you never stop learning and you never stop learning how to learn
