2 Niki Walker What makes a good teacher?

3 Niki Walker Niki Walker I always try to engage the students through a context that relates to their lives or is relevant to today. I never have the students stay in the same place for the whole lesson. I change my lesson according to the students’ emergent language or affective needs when necessary.
