Being a credible teacher can mean something completely different to you than it does to me. It seems most things in life can be looked at the same way. How one person perceives something, compared to another experiencing the same thing, can be much different. Same experience. Different takeaways. So, when looking at teacher credibility, it seems that simply being ourselves has got to be all that's needed. I'm not naive enough to believe that this is all that's a part of building credibility with our students. However, isn't being the best version of ourselves a good place to start? For ourselves. Then, our students.
