Outstanding teachers may have very different personalities and approaches, but research has discovered that they do share certain characteristics. These include:
a belief that all children can learn, but not all in the same way
a belief that teachers are learners and children are teachers
a high level of respect for all students
high expectations for all students, but not the same for all
a humanistic rather than custodial approach to classroom control
Notice that these characteristics all arise in the mind of the teachers—in their beliefs, values, and attitudes. The behaviors in which they engage are the result of those internal processes. Yet a glance at the professional development calendar affirms that present workshops focus almost exclusively on the externals of teaching—subject matter, delivery methods, discipline, standards, and assessment.
Recently, we’ve seen a proliferation of programs “that work.” Discipline that Works. Education Reform that Works. Classroom Instruction that Works. I have no doubt that the programs touted by these titles do work—for the people who developed them. They work because those people began with a foundation of beliefs about learning, teaching, knowledge, students, and other critical factors in the educational process. The program will work for anyone who shares those beliefs. However, those same programs may not work when transferred to a foundation of different beliefs and values.

Science teachers use interactive discussions and active participation to help their students apply and understand concepts in science. They are skillful in influencing and helping students solve problems and understand science concepts and objectives. They use a variety of science equipment such as balances, microscopes, measuring devices and chemicals. A science teacher establishes learning objectives, plans and prepares assignments, lessons and instructional materials, administers testing, marks tests and evaluates the student's progress. They create a positive classroom environment and get the students involved and eager to meet their learning objectives.
It is rewarding for teachers to see their students learn and appreciate knowledge but can also be very frustrating with disrespectful and unmotivated students. Job opportunities for science and other teachers remains positive because of the many teachers reaching retirement age over the next eight years, resulting in many new job openings. There is also a need for teachers in rural and low-income areas.
1.Participating on school based committees, working with other teachers in the science department and other departments in the school.
2.Planning and developing effective lesson plans that cover the curriculum and address the students interests and needs.
3.Meeting with students and parents to discuss any concerns or issues with student progress and learning.
4.Setting up laboratory experiments, coordinating field trips or arranging for speakers to come into the classroom.
5.Keeping accurate records, ensuring that students are progressing and monitoring progress through report cards, computer grading logs and other methods.
6.Attending and participating in ongoing professional development activities.

Below is a newspaper clip from The HK Standard on teachers. Hopefully it can help you:
Union seeks action on small-class teaching
(STANDARD) 09月 17日 星期一 05:30AM
The Professional Teachers' Union will place advertisements in some local newspapers next week to put pressure on Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen to highlight small- class teaching in his coming policy address.
James Ho Lin-shan, the union's deputy director (rights and complaints department), said teachers will not rule out stronger action if the government fails to respond to their call.
Eddie Shee Shing-chung, PTU vice president, said they are putting on pressure as they do not know if Tsang will implement small- class teaching as promised in his election pledge and policy address so far.
Shee stressed there is an urgent need to implement small-class teaching.
"Education reforms emphasize interactive learning between teachers and students. There are interactive learning activities such as using drama in language subjects and news writing. But there are no small-class teaching measures so far," Shee said, adding Secretary for Education Michael Suen Ming-yeung's earlier announcement of reducing primary classes by two students is not a real small- class teaching policy since it compensated for the Education Bureau's earlier policy of two additional students.
In a recent union survey of 1,012 primary and secondary teachers, 36.7 percent said small-class teaching is the most effective policy to improve learning.
About 42 percent of teachers found the policy of reducing class numbers and school closures the most ineffective way to improve education quality in the past decade.
Another 30.5 percent of respondents also disagreed with the effectiveness of integrating students with special needs into ordinary schools, saying it increased teachers' pressure as the government did not have adequate resources for the arrangement. External reviews and school self-evaluations, according to 30.3 percent of the teachers, were ineffective in raising education quality.
They claimed the policy showed the government did not trust teachers and used it to monitor and quantify their work. Another 25.2 percent disagreed with the Language Proficiency Assessment for Teachers, saying it seriously ruined the respect for teachers.
"Many teachers were disappointed about education reforms since they found they had much less time to spend on students," Shee said, adding that many experienced teachers have quit the profession out of disappointment.
