Saint Jean Baptiste de la Salle, beginning comments in a meditation on vigilance:

Vigilance is the virtue which makes us diligent and painstaking in
fulfilling all our duties.A teacher needs this virtue both for himself and
for his pupils.

In other words, eyes in the back of your head, and plan your lessons thoroughly! Otherwise it is both your demise and your students'. One of my great sins in teaching last year was laziness, although it was usually a product of exhaustion. One can never plan enough, and one can never be vigilant enough in the classroom.
