Chapter One – Introduction

The role of a teacher is of great importance not only in his/her classroom but in society in general. He/She is responsible to communicate and transfer to the next generation the intellectual traditions and technical skills of his/her generation. In doing so, the teacher ensures the survival of man and its civilisation. In fact, the teacher is the key to quality education, through his training and dedication. He/She is often perceived as the adoptive parent of the child and normally, the latter looks to his teacher not only for knowledge but also for wisdom and moral and ethical values.
The functions of a teacher in the classroom are numerous to ensure the correct development of his/her students. Among these functions are
* To ensure students are having the proper education in a safe environment
* To ensure teaching and especially learning is efficient
* To increase the students’ self-esteem and personal confidence
* To prepare students with the necessary knowledge, character and skills for higher education and to live in society
In order to successfully achieve the above-mentioned functions, a teacher needs to act as a manager in his/her classroom. In other words, the teacher should possess some important managerial skills. A manager is normally defined as someone who is in charge of his/her organisation and is responsible for the proper functioning the organising in every aspect. Among the ten management roles that Henry Mintzberg (1973) identified in his thesis entitled “The Nature of Managerial Work”, he suggested eight set of managerial skills, namely:
a. Peer Skills
b. Leadership Skills
c. Conflict Resolution Skills
d. Information Processing Skills
e. Skills in Decision-Making Under Ambiguity
f. Resource Allocation Skills
g. Entrepreneurial Skills
h. Introspection Skills

What is it? Is it good? Or is it bad? Workers say: “At first we thought globalization would be good for us by giving our boss business opportunities to make money. But when a multinational group bought our company, the first thing it did was to fire us. We lost our job before getting any benefits…… People running small businesses believe that it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but they also worry that multinational corporations would dominate and threaten the existence of their businesses. But some owners of small businesses are confident, “We are swimmers. We are good at surfing in the waves…...” What does globalization look like in the eyes of people who own big enterprises? When the anti-globalization people returned to Hong Kong from Italy, they said, “Anti-globalization is not simply throwing stones or breaking window glasses. . . .” (Excerpt from website of RTHK) ...

... not grasping the lesson, then, he/she should be able to change the teaching style accordingly. This is why it is important to always have a Plan B. 2.6 Skill Six: Introspection Skill This maybe the most important skill needed by a teacher-manager. It deals with the teacher’s ability to reflect upon his/her own work and the impact it has on his/her students. In other words, after each lesson, the teacher needs to self-evaluate himself/herself. Successful evaluation would be that teaching and learning has occurred and each student has understood the lesson and all works have been completed. Else, the teacher needs to change his/her teaching strategies and/or behaviour in class. Chapter 3 – Conclusion To be a good and effective teacher, a blend of managerial skills is required by the teacher in order to promote a successful teaching and learning environment. It is important to note that teachers are born with these skills but it takes time as well as lots of practice to acquire and master these skills. References * Brooks J. G. & Brooks M. G., 1993.

... meaning of educational leadership. I envisioned my future school as a haven for learning, where learning happens constantly, regardless of the time or place. My school will take responsibility for identifying the most effective approach to educate all learners, so that these students will feel empowered to take responsibility for themselves, that is, take on an “I can do this” attitude. As students develop confidence in themselves, they will innately feel encouraged to form the relationships with others that are needed in this society. Students will have a planned and balanced curriculum with emphasis on multi-media E-learning ‘any time any place’. Social interactive learning will be encouraged with visits, exchanges, field work and projects. Changes in technological learning will provide teachers with more time to directly convey knowledge and information, while coaching and mentoring students in order that they reach their learning goals. For younger learners importance will be placed on the development of their reading, language, maths, communication and social skills within a topical framework. For older students, personalised learning programmes will be broadly based, flexible and include development of their academic, non-academic, vocational, occupational, economic, language, cultural, technological and creative skills to reflect the global context within which they will live and which will form the platform of their pathway to life-long learning.

..., there are those, who claim that the best teacher is someone who is very knowledgeable about the subject. They say that person with great education surely can be great teacher. Teachers have the very important responsibility of shaping the lives of young children. Therefore all teachers should strive for what can be considered to be a good teacher. A good teacher can be defined as someone who always pushes students to want to do their best while at the same time trying to make learning interesting as well as creative. Teachers, especially at the high school level, must be very creative with their teaching styles. Not everybody learns the same way, nor are they interested in the same things. It is difficult to keep the attention of 15-20 children at the same time. Classroom setup and design is a good way to get and keep the attention of students. Workstations are a good way to encourage different types of learning. By allowing children a chance to choose which activities they want to participate in, children are taking control of their own education. Students are deeply impressed by their teachers, and are prone to copy their characteristics. A popular teacher becomes the role model for his pupils. He is their idol. It is at this point in a student’s life that a teacher takes on the role of a guide. The teacher has the power to stir a wayward youth away from danger and the power to guide a youth to achieve his goals. He has the power to inculcate the ideals of patriotism......

In this form of legal business the business itself has only one owner. This is listed as the most common of the four types of organizations compared to. In this form the owner and the business are considered as being un-breakable unless they both break… Elite productions presents will be considered the different name under my name that represents the business side of me…This also makes the owner responsible for all income and expenses that come thru the business and are included in the owner’s personal tax return... This can be a plus if and when the business takes a loss and the owner has the option of including such deductions to out-weigh the personal income generated… On the flip side of this the owner has to pay taxes on profits made in the name of the company… When looking to obtain a Sole Proprietorship all one has to do is have their business license and move forward in beginning operations… Unlike the rest of the organizational requirements needed for the others, a sole proprietorship is easy to form and operate as well… When dealing with a competitive edge over other soul food restaurants and the way WE are looking to do thing; this would be the best fit for our company for the long haul… When...

...Teacher that changed my life A teacher alone has the ability to change a student’s life. Agree or disagree.                 The school is not a video game which gives immediate gratification, and we cannot claim that students fall in love in each subject taught. After all, what a teacher teaches daily are simple tools like speaking a language, solve a math problem or write an essay that are unlikely by themselves to radically change the lives of students. We all, in our school career, remembered a hurtful words of teachers, with comments on our grades records for example or on the opposite hand a teacher who once believed in us, who knew how to restore our confidence. So a teacher has the ability to change a student lives with sometimes a happy end but it can also influenced the student in disastrous consequences. I never saw a reason to do the work. If my teacher didn’t care enough about me to ask why things weren’t getting done, then why should I do them? There was no real reason besides a grade. The motivation just wasn’t high enough to make me care. Then, I started taking a class with Mrs. Davis as my teacher. When I didn’t do the work, she asked why. She cared. She wanted to know me more than the other teachers seemed to. She wanted to see more than just another face in a desk every day. She wanted that with all her students. She still does. So, I explained things to her. She listened. She paid attention. She remembered and always asked for...

The purpose of skin is to protect the organs inside the body. The functions of skin is protection, excretion, maintence, synthesis, storage, and detection. Protection underlying tissues and organs against shocks, absorption and chemical attack. Excretion of salts, water and organic wastes by integumentary glands. Maintence of normal body temperature through either insulation or evaporative cooling, as needed. Synthesis of Vitamin D3, a steroid that is subsequently converted to the hormone calcitriol, important to normal calcium metabolism. Storage of nutrients. Lipids are stored in adipocytes in the dermis and in adipose tissue in the subcutaneous layer. Detection of touch, pressure, pain, and temperature stimuli and the relay of that information to the nervous system. 2. What are five layers of the skin? Describe each.
