great teachers tended to set big goals for their students. They were also perpetually looking for ways to improve their effectiveness.
Superstar teachers had four other tendencies in common: they avidly recruited students and their families into the process; they maintained focus, ensuring that everything they did contributed to student learning; they planned exhaustively and purposefully—for the next day or the year ahead—by working backward from the desired outcome; and they worked relentlessly, refusing to surrender to the combined menaces of poverty, bureaucracy, and budgetary shortfalls.
Asking “Does anyone have any questions?” does not work, and it’s a classic rookie mistake.
