First impressions are vital when both on placement and in a real job. It is essential that all teachers…
- Are punctual
- Have appropriate dress
- Ensure safeguarding
- show tolerance and respect to all
- Have proper and professional regard to the ethos of the school
- Maintain high standards
These are all aspects of being a teacher that should come naturally but they are very important factors in being an excellent practitioner. Depending on the school some may be different however the overall first impression of any teacher should include these aspects and many more.
Target: Ensure I think about all the above aspects and develop further awareness and responsibility towards them in schools.
