Ten Technical Mistakes To Avoid As A Modern-Day Teacher has listed some ten (10) important mistakes to avoid as a modern-day teacher. They are:

1. Do not send a student away from your class during teaching and learning as a result of bad behavior. This is because, you cannot account for what the child may be doing outside and this can count against you if an accident occurs

2. Do not touch a learner seductively.  The learner might claim he or she was abuse either sexually/physically. You may not be able to refute it.

3. Do not give assignments you don’t have time to mark. Unmarked assignments or homework indicate that you are incompetent/unprofessional. 

4. Do not use your school internet to send confidential or private emails. They can be tracked by the school management.

5.Do not just teach within the period given to you, especially when you are preparing learners for external examination. Do create more contact time for your students.

8.Do not conspire against your school head (Head of Department, academic head etc). What goes around, comes around. 

9.Do not be difficult instructor, and avoid treating your learners with belligerence. Pocket your personal challenges and always be full of compassion.

10. Do not treat students with predisposition. There should be nothing like favorite students;

every child matters.
