Teacher Behavior Observation Scale

acim teacher can be applied to reading anyone’s face, so if you don’t have to deal with a teacher’s face at this point in your life, you can still apply this to any faces that you see!

As our kids head back to school, our attention naturally revolves around helping them adjust as smoothly as possible. The more we understand our children’s personalities, the easier it is to do this. But we can forget that a big factor in their happiness and success in school has to do with how well we understand their teachers’ personalities too!

Teachers have incredibly challenging jobs, trying to manage the needs of a large group of diverse little souls. They’re overworked and vastly underpaid and still do amazing work.

But like everyone else, they have their own individual perceptions, needs and values that can affect how well they relate to each child in their classroom.

If the teacher is similar in nature to your son or daughter, they’ll be likely to easily understand their feelings and behavior, and interact comfortably with them. But if the teacher’s personality is markedly different, this can potentially lead to misperceptions that can result in problems for them both.

Of course all teachers are well-versed in dealing with different types of children, but they’re only human, and some kids will be easier for them to work with than others.

Face Reading Can Help You Communicate With Teachers & Improve Your Child’s School Experience

The better you can “read” who the teacher is, the more easily you can anticipate any problems, and the better you can communicate to help them understand your child’s needs. This is where face reading can save the day!

The principles of face reading can be used to glean information from complex patterns not just in faces, but also in body types, and even from people’s choices in clothing and decor. The insights you can get from even simple observations can help you create rapport and communicate successfully with them.

Listed below are some characteristics you might recognize in three different types of teachers’ faces, bodies and behavior. Seeing any one of them will clue you in to some aspects of their nature. The more of them you observe, the more likely it is the teacher will fit that personality type.

The “It’s Good for Them” Teacher

  • Body type: short compact stature OR very tall, lanky body
  • Facial features: strong jaw and/or full eyebrows; two vertical wrinkles between eyebrows
  • Teacher’s desk and classroom: well-organized; schedules posted on the walls; no clutter
  • Teacher’s clothing: Practical, no-nonsense, no lace or bows or fussy details
  • Teacher’s attitude: Important to challenge students, not coddle them. Pushing them hard will make them grow, having them compete with each other is healthy. Structure and rules are important.

Possible Benefits – This teacher is great at setting goals for kids and making sure they achieve them. They tend to value logical thinking, can size up a situation quickly, and take quick action to fix any problems.

Possible Challenges – However, their personality can sometimes conflict with a child who’s highly-sensitive or anxious – they don’t have a natural understanding of that type of child and so can be impatient with them or push them too hard.

How to Communicate With the “It’s Good for Them” Teacher – If you do have to communicate with this teacher about a problem with your child, be direct, get to the point and make it clear your goal is to find a win-win solution. But you may have to let them feel like they’re winning a bit more than you are. Say, “You’re right” frequently!
