Characteristics of a Good Teacher

A good teacher displays self confidence. - She has control of the classroom and the students know who is in charge. The teacher takes pride in her work and strives for excellence. She knows what to teach and how to teach it. A good teacher is a consumer of knowledge. - He knows the subject material and is always searching for new methods and ideas to use. He shares his knowledge with his students and colleagues. A good teacher is also looking for ideas to develop himself professionally and personally. A good teacher is prepared. - She prepares her lessons and materials in advance. She follows a regular routing, is organized and has activities readily available. She is also prepared for lessons that do not go as planned. She has backup plans and is willing to change her plans if needed. A good teacher listens. - She listens to her students engage in conversations with one another and encourages her students to engage in conversation with her as well. She is tuned in when a student is having difficulty understanding subject material or when a student is having personal issues. She knows when to step in and when to back off. A good teacher motivates. - He motivates his students to learn and to take on projects independently. He has an enthusiasm that is contagious to his students and colleagues. A good teacher is fair. - She gives all of her students a chance to succeed in her classroom even when the conditions at home are not favorable for the student. She allows students to do their best and recognizes those that try. A good teacher has a sense of humor. - He knows when to laugh at himself and when to laugh with the class. Humor within the classroom can ease any frustration that the teacher and/or student may be experiencing at that moment.

A willingness to change. - This one gets overlooked sometimes, I think. Ive written about this before, but it bears repeating. We talk about how schools should be transformative for kids, but I think they can be just as transformative for teachers. If you expect kids to be changed by their interaction with you, its got to be a two-way street. A willingness to work collaboratively. - Sure, there are some great teachers who close the door to their classroom and do what they want, but I think you send a strange message to the kids that way sometimes. Teachers are part of a school community, and even where that community can be flawed (and lots of schools are), a great teacher should be willing to work to make the community a better place. A good teacher has a passion for teaching - This can manifest itself so many ways. Im the jump around the room kind of teacher, and sure, that comes from a lot of passion, but some of the best teachers Ive known have had a passion that students had to be quiet to catch onto.
