• Punctuality – It is critical that teachers are in their designated class on time and remain in the classroom with students for the duration of the lesson.

• Class Activities – Classroom teaching should include the regular use of activities relevant to the curriculum/syllabus. This includes, but is not limited to: field trips, music, games, outdoor activities, films, etc. These activities should be planned and incorporated into lessons as teaching tools to further students’ understanding of the class material.
• Relationships – all teachers are expected to be collaborative and cooperative. All staff members must strive to create a positive, mature, friendly, open, and tension- free atmosphere.
