3260-What are the best attributes of a good teacher?

Which characteristics and qualities should a good teacher possess?

These are some that I researched:

  • Friendly
  • Good Personality
  • Knowledgable
  • Good Communicator
  • Good Listener
  • Good Sense of Humour
  • Gentle, kind, chivalrous and a benevolent person

I believe that each and every one of us teachers comes with our own unique blend of qualities. I personally think what makes a great teacher are the ones that bring the following to a classroom:

  • Passion for teaching
  • Love the subject they teach
  • Willingness to change
  • Organized
  • Humility
  • The ability to collaborate with students

Here is a great Ted Talk you will enjoy watching.
