" A TEACHER IS AN ETHICAL, MORAL, PROFESIONAL, HUMAN ENTERPRISE"

The most basic infrastructure of an educational institution is teachers and books. In the earlier days teachers were not appointed. Rather, through diligent training a person became a good practitioner of a subject. If others came and asked that person to teach, he or she taught those few students. As those students practiced and developed good qualities, this teacher gained respect for his training, and gradually this person became known as a great teacher. Because this was a natural process, there was less danger of a corrupted person becoming a well-known teacher. In the monastic system, the process of becoming a teacher was organized to some extent. But in modern times the word “teacher” reminds us of someone in an academic field who, after completing certain requirements, is appointed as a teacher by an organization, whether or not that person has any students. There are general and specific codes of ethics that are sacred and binding on teachers in their relation and working with the students especially in modern, largely co-educational set up. We at Lloyd adhere by all the legal, ethical, moral, professional code of ethics in imparting knowledge and skill learning services.

The responsibilities to the Pupils:

  1. The faculty members shall be unprejudiced and must act with justice.
  2. The teacher shall act in accordance with the law of the land and must be a catalyst in the evolving concepts of the pupil’s needs and rights
  3. The teacher shall not use professional relationships with pupils for private advantage
  4. The teacher shall not disclose information about pupils obtained in the course of professional service unless such disclosure serves a compelling professional purpose or is required by law

Lesson Preparation

1. While preparing lessons it would be good to consider the following points:

a- What added value are you giving to the level of the pupil’s educational achievement?

b- How can you create ways of adding value to the pupils’ education?

c- How do you intend to test what has been achieved?

d- How do you intend to test what has been achieved?

Effective Classroom Style

In developing your style, it might help you to consider the following points

  • Try to be as well-organised and efficient as you can;
  • Show by your manner that you are looking forward to teaching the class and that you do not expect any problems;
  • Make clear to the class what is expected and valued;
  • Praise good work;
  • Review the balance between your positive and negative comments about pupils’ work and behaviour;
  • Always be vigilant – never ignore misbehaviour or it will get worse;
  • Use bold gestures and positive facial expressions to reinforce your style of teaching
  • A calm, relaxed facial expression is characteristic of an effective teacher;
  • Resist any temptation to use physical contact as a means of controlling disobedience or unruly pupils;
  • Be sure to control your anger by dealing with pupils in a positive and assertive manner.

College Activities

By getting involved in the Lloyd’s activities you will be contributing to the whole college issues rather than just curricular one. College activities will give you the opportunity to develop relationships with other members of staff and with students across the whole organisation. These relationships have a beneficial effect on your teaching through the mutual respect and trust gained from participating in an activity.

Dress Code

As a person whom pupils look up to, you should dress as befits the dignity of your profession. You are expected to present an example to your pupils through the way you dress.

Absences

If you are unable to attend to your duties due to illness, you are to keep your Director and Deputy Director informed on a daily basis a day before college starts. Leaves should be planned after due permission from the Deputy Director

Accountability

As a teacher you are expected to:

  • Be punctual and give a full day’s work;
  • Be prepared for all lessons
  • Keep all students occupied and interested;
  • Mark all work constructively

Conclusion

The above is not meant to be exhaustive. These are a few thoughts to get you started. It is hoped that your experience as a teacher will be an enjoyable and productive one, for you and for the students in your charge.
