Even cognizant with the meaning "awareness" seems to fit the purpose. A teacher needs to be aware of the misconceptions students generally have related to a topic or difficulties they face in learning that topic. Doesn't empathy also contain a meaning of "awareness of how others feel"? In that sense, it seems I can use both words, like so: A teacher is cognizant about is this a correct use?
