1. Take no account of students’ thoughts and feelings.
2. Have no idea of what you want to help students achieve (i.e. don’t plan).
3. Do the same kind of lesson all the time, day in day out.
4. Make fun of individual students. ’t have any other kind of fun.
5. Leave students to work out the meaning of language (vocabulary, grammar, etc) for themselves.
6. Never record your lessons and certainly don’t tell your colleagues what you’re doing.
7. Work exclusively with either the high achievers or the low achievers every lesson.
8. It is bad to bottle up anger – express it freely.
9. Speak so that students can’t understand you.
10. ’t concern yourself with punctuality.
Why not try writing your own ‘teacher from hell’ list and 'teacher from heaven' list.
Good luck and enjoy good teaching
