As said earlier, teaching is not a profession for every Tom Dick and Harry! It is a profession that demands hard work continuously with effective teaching and instructing techniques offered to students. An individual with excellent and superior communication skills, the one who has strong control over the unwanted and unacceptable behavior and the ones who are aware of all the upcoming triggers within the classroom deserves to be a teacher! Having the concept of four eyes of a teacher is actually true because handling students and young teens who are ill-disciplined, wicked and mischievous is quite a strenuous task. A teacher should be aware of all the forthcoming new misdemeanor and unpleasant situations. It can comprise of anything; teens misbehaving with each other and in some cases even with the teachers, not obeying the orders as conducted by the boss of the class and similarly not keeping up to the maintained and standard decorum of the classroom. So that is why, a sense of control projected by a teacher is necessary. The teacher should not only be skilled and proficient in their academic related scenario, but also deal with the manipulation and handling expertise which is granted and taught to the teachers at the very start of their careers. If you start ignoring even the petty details of misdemeanor and misconduct, you are giving an impression that the class is no longer in your authority and influence giving leverage and influence to students to carry on with their activities. Therefore, it is essential that you have this characteristic of control. The way you look, communicate, talk, move and even your facial expressions are a way to show how confident you are in teaching the class of students.

Move around the classroom:

Guard the students by walking around the corners of the class. This will give an impression to the students that you are actually interested in their actions as well as in their academic relations. This will keep the students away from performing misconduct and bad behavior.

Eye contact:

Eye contact remains the most important aspect for showing buoyancy and confidence. It can communicate the feelings of displeasure, discipline and discontent. Strict instructions can easily be conveyed to the entire class if your eye contact is powerful and influential.

Be vigilant!

Make sure you have your eyes at the back of your head! You need to be totally aware of all the happenings in your class. It is true that you are one and the students are more in number, but a good teacher will always be familiarized with all sorts of activities going on. Similarly, when you have allotted the entire class with a science project, make sure your eyes are on the students, making sure that they are conducting the task according to the set rules and standards.

Body language:

Maintain and set a posture and a position that is intimidating to the students and shows how influential you are. You can easily gain control and maintain appropriateness during the lecture while being firm in your attitude and standpoints. This does not mean that teachers are always showing the expressions that show a nerve-wracking behavior and are considered daunting, but where necessary do appreciate the students by using applause and standing ovations.
