What We Want in a Teacher

Categories: Blog May 2, 2014 @ 6:14 PM 7 Comments      

I think that a teacher is one of thew most important jobs in the world. They are the ones that give you your education. Without education you can’t get a better job. Teacher are one of the biggest effect on how the next will learn and how smart they are. I think what makes a good teacher is that they have to be nice but not to nice to take advantage of. They can’y be very strict other wise the other students won’t want to learn. Teachers should always try to be interactive with the students. They need to have hands on projects. Something that teachers should never do is the opposite of hands on projects. What I am trying to say is that if you don’t do hands on projects your students get less involved. That doesn’t mean that you should always do them cause a lot of anything gets boring.

    Alex, favorite phrase, “a lot of anything gets boring” thank you for your suggestions about how we teachers need to teach and relate to our students! Happy summer!

    I think you have hit the nail on head with your blogpost! Teachers do have to engage their students with a variety of projects and let them choose what to use to demonstrate their learning! Nicely done Alex!

    Finding that balance between nice and strict can be difficult. I think some of the best teachers are both. What is never acceptable is to be mean. I hope you have many hands-on learning opportunities as you go through school… but not so many that you get bored with them!

    Hi Alex!

    I love your insight on what you think a teacher should be. I am a college student at SUNY Fedonia and I am studying to become a teacher. I think your post is really helpful to not only me but my classmates as we are preparing to become teachers.

    I think another important feature of a good teacher is that they should be passionate about what they are teaching. If they don’t love what they are teaching, how are the students going to love learning about it?

    Have you had any teachers that you thought were really good and done the things you mentioned?

    Again, thank you for your post!

    Teachers do have hard jobs because when they go home they have to make there lesson plans for the whole week so they don’t get a hole lot of time with there famileies.
