Abstract

Teachers are among the primary players in educational settings as they provide student-centered services and improve students' adjustment. While students might be skilled in different areas, they require the teachers' guidance to reach excellent results. Therefore, investing in teacher training and preparation is essential to sustain students' future development. Literature shows that learner achievements primarily rely on teacher motivation, sensitivity, and competence. Teachers with these skills are more likely to get better performance and academic goals and, consequently, foster the educational sector of their country. Research demonstrates that teachers' psychological and relational competencies are among the main and fundamental aspects that need to be considered when determining the successful implementation of education. In addition to this, initial teacher training should also foster teachers’ digital competencies as opportunities not only to improve students' educational outcomes but also for sustained, learningoriented interactions between teachers and students. The main aim of this perspective article is to explore the most recent literature that shed light on these fundamental 21st-century teaching skills, highlighting them as protective factors not only for students learning processes but also for their emotional wellbeing.
