Teaching is one of the few fields where nonverbal communication is equally important as verbal communication being spoken and written. Children are experts at 'reading' an adults body language, so teachers must be aware of this and work to portray the appropriate message being sent to their students. When providing either oral or written communication to students, it must be clear and concise, so that students are not left to guess what is meant in a teacher's message. They should be expressive and articulate, including a rich vocabulary, to model for the students proper public speaking and enhance their learning experiences.
