"The most important attribute to be effective in the classroom and, hence to deliver a good performance, is to create an atmosphere of credibility. This means that a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the material and class-preparation are absolute must. A teacher must be 100% prepared for each and any lecture. Students have this right and a teacher has this duty. If students feel your enthusiasm and realize that you put a substantial effort into teaching they will respond by doing the same. Credibility is in my opinion the most important attribute of a teacher. Teaching requires a commitment to the task and should not be regarded as a task we are required to do as part of our academic career. Students are able to detect this type of attitude and will respond accordingly."
