Dear Colleague
I have been tahing English for 6 years. I find myself all of what you have written in your messsage but not always. Sometimes, you need your class to be teacher centred and most of the time you want it students centred. I'm a caring teacher and I enjoy teaching when I can show off during teaching. I believe that teaching is a system in which we should all work together to achieve our objectives. Sometimes you fed up with doing the same things regularly. In addition to that, I beleive that teaching is a very difficult job because it is the profession of Prophets.
Yours
Mohammad

Hi Sarda,

Here's how your list affects me:

1. Yes, I enjoy teaching ............
2. Yes, I am a caring teacher ..............
3. Yes, I can get tired of teaching the same thing over and over, but try to mix it up so I don't encounter this problem..............
4. (No, I don't have this opinion) For me teaching is just a job which should be fulfilled anyway .............
5. (Perhaps, but I never look at it in this regard) For me teaching is a system and mechanism of education ................
6. Yes, I want to convey new knowledge, science and ideas ...............
7. (No, I don't have this opinion) I am conservative in teaching and keep new knowledge for myself ............
8. No, I don't want to show off myself through teaching........
9. (Teachers must always stay in control of their classroom, but the bottom line is the students- I don't share this opinion) I stick to the idea of teacher authority and teacher-centered classrooms ..............
10. Yes, I believe in student autonomy and student-centered classrooms...............

I hope this information helps you! :D

HI,
I like your topic . From my opiion teaching is great job which I like it very much. I believe that if you have a knowledge you must convey it to others and donot be mean.I like having a classroom with the students who are responsipable and can do the different activities themselves .the teacher should be the guide for them. I like using all the new techniques in teaching english , all the time I have a new idea on the way of conducting the different tasks.
I hope that you will find the answer somehow useful.
all the best :P

Hi Noor,

Thanks a lot for your answer. Of course your opinion would be of great help to me.

It would be so much better for me to have the ideas of teachers written in the number form and if they like they can elaborate on their answers too.


10 for the most important
9 in between
8 "
7 "
6 "
5 "
4 "
3 "
2 "
1 for the least important

My best regards,
Sarda
