Still, there is nothing about ability to listen or interpret human children - no expectatin about understanding of brain development (that is not just difficulty, there is way more to it) nor how their emotions affect their behavior. Nor ability to figure out which particular thing it is they don't get and need to be told to move on.

I can't recall good teacher thet would not had that.

What you describe falls under the good classroom management skill set. Maximizing student engagement and time on task requires some familiarity with concepts in child development, educational psychology, emotional intelligence and group dynamics. I'd also sprinkle in a little conflict resolution training for extra credit.

No it does not falls there. Not at all. Engaged studen on task does not imply what I wrote about.
