However you are never alone and never bored at work, you have millions of young minds ready to learn and you hold the magic serum to feed their brains. You can find yourself losing control of the class, but anything as simple as ringing a bell or clapping your hands 3 times will bring your class together again.

Personal Characteristics

I remember taking a survey in school a personality test. If you got "gold" you would be the most responsible, most caring, and the best rule follower. I tried to figure out the test to achieve the gold group. As I answered the question I realized I didn't need to, these were all my traits. A teacher needs to be a character in which you look up to, not just another employee a role model.
