1. Aim High

Ambition is a virtue found in all successful people. You have to set high targets both for yourself and for your students. For instance, dual language teachers can set a goal to increase the number of hours they spend giving extra lessons to students who are more familiar with the partner language. If you raise your expectations for your students, it may inspire them to work harder.

2. Motivate the Disadvantaged

A society can only be as strong as its weakest link. Different students come from different backgrounds in terms of race, class, or religion, especially in Dual Language Schools. Some students may be disadvantaged in some way in comparison to the others.

The teacher's duty as the leader is to encourage the disadvantaged children and give them the confidence needed to improve their performance.

3. Professional Development

We live in a very dynamic world. As technology advances, humanity continues to replace old things with new and better things. The education system has not been left behind. To keep up with modern trends, teachers need to continually seek professional development so that they can build on their skills and become better teachers.
