Know when your students are interested and know when they are tuning you out
Studies show that most teachers spend an average of $443 of their own money a year to meet the needs of their students, while only making an average starting salary of $31,000 a year. Teachers are incredibly invested and have a huge impact on the lives of their students. Learning how to interpret body language and posture during class, as well as other nonverbal behaviors such as tone of voice and facial expressions, can help teachers keep their students interested in whatever topic they are covering.
