The art of being an effective substitute teacher consist of several characteristics: classroom management, multi-tasking. If an individual doesn't display all these qualities while they are the guest teacher, the classroom and the entire day can become an diaster! I will explain the importance of each characteristics and how it helps the classroom run smoothly and safely. Being the guest teacher you have to be firm, but yet fair to all the students to create an environment that allows learning to occurr.
CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT: You are responsible for the introducing and explaining of various topics ranging from how to write paragraphs or solving algebraic expressions, it all depends on the lesson plans left by the teacher. During certain times you may have to address/ and handle behavior issues immediately.
MULIT-TASKING: If you become frustrated when you have to do several things at one time, then I would not recommend teaching as a profession. You have to be able to organize and adjust your schedule, based on your students needs. To be effective you need to be able to teach lessons, handle children that are off task and not focused, clarify and explain directions or questions.
