These 10 practices can positively influence your success as a teacher. You'll notice that the most successful teachers in your school are following these rules on a consistent basis. Get busy becoming "that" teacher—the one who makes a difference; is admired by students, parents, and coworkers; and inspires students to meet their fullest potential.
