A good 21st century teacher will focus on ongoing professional development and keep himself or herself up to date with the latest research about teaching strategies. This is the value of an effective teacher. It is important because every student deserves the best teachers, said Chew Teck Ann, principal of Sri Kuala Lumpur International School in Subang Jaya, Selangor.

“Good teachers put in extra effort to prepare for lessons and cultivate an academic environment in class by setting high, but not impossible, expectations of students. New ideas and good teaching methods can make a huge difference in class,” added Chew, who has been a teacher for 46 years and a principal for 27.
