A teacher in the modern scenario settings is expected to be filled with the responsibility of bearing the peculiar nature of children patiently. They are expected to use all the possible methods, skills and experiences in the effective and efficient handling of the students. The present societies are moving on a stage of rewarding the teachers for their quality work and thus laid a new challenge for teachers of being a better performer according to the parameters set by the society for good teachers (Romeo, 2012). The limited opportunities for professional developments for teachers are also a major concern and challenge for teachers of maintaining their professional qualities which lacks somewhere due to lack of funding by schools in this aspect. There is a positive relationship between the career development opportunities and the professional satisfaction from the jobs. Teachers face the responsibility of addressing the individual needs of the students and the fellow teachers which form a diverse workforce of learners. A great amount of stress is felt by the teachers during several days in a week in which major stress complaints were from the elementary school teachers in comparison to middle or high school teachers.
Ethical practices in teaching:
Ethics hold a great importance in the profession of teaching. Teachers as ethical performers do what is best for their students. Ethical teachers behave in a professional manner while interacting with students, parents and colleagues. The teachers with ethics apply same standards of teaching with all categories of students. An ethical teacher is expected not to show any sort of biasness because of race, religion and background of the students (Ashworth, 2000). An ethical teacher helps her students in mastering their course material and even various walks of life. Teachers with high ethics even work on stress management skills and test handling skills in a strategic manner.
