What do you think makes a good teacher?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 22, 2006
“A good teacher is someone who is organized, caring, compassionate and can deal with just about anything.”
“They should be able to incorporate different learning styles, because not everyone learns the same. They should also encourage independent thinking and good decision making.”
“The person must care about their students. They should be understanding, but also have a high level of expectation and be knowledgeable about the subjects they teach.”
“They’re personable, have good listening skills. They are responsive to the desires of the class, but still stern.”
