Style is the way you do things as a teacher. While there are both good and bad ways of doing things, there are many good ways of teaching and each teacher has his or her own style.

At the beginning of your teaching career, you tend to draw on models that you have experienced as a pupil as well as the knowledge you have gained from training, but, as time goes on, you become clearer about your own strengths and limitations and your preferred way of working. It is perhaps worth noting in passing that most teachers, and especially the inexperienced, usually have too few models to draw upon. It is valuable, if you have the opportunity, to see how other teachers teach and organise, particularly at the beginning of your career.
