Top Ten Qualities of a Good School Teacher

The Top Ten
1 Fairness

My maths teacher never tells me off for anything so kind. Thinks I'm funny.

There are these teachers who have favorite students. It's pathetic!

My math teacher is so unfair! she gives you detention just for chewing gum!

Firm but Fair, as I say.

2 Wisdom

I once had a teacher who didn't have very much of this. Remember, wisdom is different from knowledge.

3 Open Mindedness

Yes! I hate it when teachers (especially in Math and Science) don't accept that you made a different approach in solving a problem, even if what you did is completely allowed within the rules! Open-minded teachers could help students learn easier, and they can also learn from students!

This should be number 1.

4 Understanding

In my late years of primary school, the school hired this company to teach PE. The instructors were mean and didn't understand kids who weren't sporty, like me.

I hate teachers who don't care about people's individual disabilities. If someone has something such as ADHD, A teacher should be able to work around that student to make sure that they are feeling comfortable. Something the librarian at my school clearly can't do.

5 Caring

Teachers should be paid more for what they do. Everyday you do something that you wouldn't have been able to accomplish without a teacher. Teachers make their students thrive and prosper into adults.

A good teacher cares about their students, teaches them to thrive and grow in society, helps them prosper through their journey in their life, gives them advice and words of wisdom, and so much more.

You feel better when a teacher cares about you and tries to understand you.

6 Patience

Yeah no way not any time soon like um that would be spec education

7 Supportive
8 Determination

A teacher that loves children and loves to teach-that's the way it needs to be.

9 Respectful
10 Fun

Besides really knowing their stuff and fairness, fun definitely pretty crucial in learning because it makes kids engaged in what they're learning. The best kind of teachers are fun ones.

The Newcomers

? Passion

They're going to do a much better job if they actually care about and enjoy what they're doing.

The Contenders
11 Engaging
12 Generous

I love teachers who are generous in giving grades!

13 Charismatic

The reason why I was so inspired by my old physics teacher and my quantum tutor, as well as Feynman and other notable names in science, was their charisma. It makes you want to follow in their footsteps and be successful.

This and respective are the most crucial. No student will learn well without loving the teacher and enjoying their presence.

Oh, I was going to put this one! Thanks to anyone who added this.

20 Easygoing
21 Available
22 Attractive

Who the heck added this. Attractiveness in teachers doesn't matter in order to be a good teacher.

23 Laid Back
24 Apolitical
25 Experience

Someone who knows what he or she is talking about. One problem I had in school was that our music lessons were sometimes taught sometimes by a sports lecturer who knew sod all about music.
For example when he asked us to research a composer I did an essay on Carl Stalling who did the music for the Warner Bros. cartoons. He didn't think I was being legitimate as there were no library books in the school about him, shows how little he knows outside of a football pitch.
