What do Successful Preschool Teachers Have in Common?

Posted On Dec 17, 2020

Choosing to further your education and studying Early Childhood Education (ECE) is a great career path to take if you are considering becoming a preschool teacher. ECE courses will give you skills you need to help every child learn.

Becoming a preschool teacher can be quite rewarding. However, it can also be a demanding career choice. There are certain qualities you may already possess that make you a natural fit to lead a classroom of youngsters who are eager to learn. Teacher reading to a group of young students in a classroom.

Passion


Successful preschool teachers truly are passionate about educating and they love their students. They sincerely want to make a difference in the lives of children. This passion gets them through tough moments and sometimes tough days. Teaching isn’t always easy, but despite the hard times, most teachers say they can’t imagine doing anything else.

It is an absolute MUST to pack your patience when entering a preschool classroom. Preschool teachers encounter tons of different situations each and every day. Young children are completely unpredictable and aren't always the most cooperative. Plus, not all kids learn at the same pace, have the same abilities, or behave well all the time. A great preschool teacher plays it cool no matter what the situation.

High Energy

If one child seems to bounce off the walls, what do you think it is like with a classroom full of them? Successful preschool teachers match their students' high energy. An energetic teacher will also better hold the attention of easily distracted young learners.

Creativity

Preschool teachers need to be creative in order to be effective in the classroom. They need to make learning fun and exciting. This may mean thinking outside of the box to keep kids engaged and reduce the risk of behavioral problems by packing the day full of interesting activities.

Flexibility

The greatest plan ever made can come crashing down in minutes when little learners are involved. Flexibility is the key to managing preschool classrooms. It is best to just expect the unexpected and be prepared to simply roll with whatever comes your way.

Respect

Respect for students and their families is vital for preschool teachers. It can set the stage for a child's future. Interaction between the teacher and family is often the first experience some families have with a school system. Understanding and appreciating each person as an important member of the school community will lead to a great educational experience for the kids.

Dedication

Successful preschool teachers are passionate life-long learners themselves who are in it for the long haul. The work of a dedicated preschool teacher sets a solid educational foundation for students that can stay with them all the way through to high school graduation. Great teachers are willing to go the extra mile to help their students learn and improve their skills-both academically and socially.

Conclusion

When preschool teachers incorporate these skills into their teaching, they can help children develop a deep-rooted love for education. Whether the students realize it or not, they feed off of the energy of the teacher. Becoming a preschool teacher may be the perfect career path for you.
