As a diligent teacher, you are active in the teaching and learning process, take responsibility for your own teaching and learning, and do many good things of your own free will (DC 58:27). You ensure that all students are engaged in the learning process and seek after the students who are not succeeding. As a result, you find great joy and satisfaction in your students’ learning and growth.(Alma 32: 41-43).

Prepare: You are consistent, earnest, and energetic in your preparation.

Engage: You take every opportunity to engage with students inside and outside of class.

Improve: You work hard to improve your teaching practices to meet the needs of your students. You take advantage of opportunities to help students improve how they learn. Knowing that the Lord can you help you know what to do and say to help others.
