Teaching is one of the most difficult jobs that you can have, because there are so many different facets of teaching. A teacher is not just supposed to impart knowledge to their students, it goes so far beyond that. The list of qualities of a great teacher is long because the responsibility of a teacher is great. A teacher makes an impact whether they want to or not, and it can change a student’s life if they are a great one, for the better. However, if they are not a great teacher, they can negatively impact the student for their future in learning. There are several qualities to being a great teacher and all are important to know and to do. First, a great teacher needs to be able to motivate and equip the students to learn for themselves, so that once the students leave the classroom, they will have the tools and desire to continue to learn on their own. This isn’t the only way that a teacher goes beyond the actual imparting of knowledge. A teacher needs to also have patience and an understanding of the students that they are teaching. A teacher needs to invest in getting to know the students, and not just their name, but pay attention to how they learn and what they need to learn the best. A teacher should be invested in the students and be creative to come up with ways to help the students learn and to reach their highest potential. A great teacher sees each student as an individual and seeks to build a relationship with them, knowing that teaching goes beyond the classroom. A great English teacher needs to have a good grasp of subject knowledge. A teacher needs to know what they are teaching and should be prepared with answers to questions they may get. They should do whatever they can to increase the students learning through a variety of different learning styles and activities. It is important to have a variety because of the differences that a classroom may have with learning styles and personality types. One activity might not help each student learn, so it’s important to try several different activities. A great teacher is one who enjoys teaching. In my experience, the lessons that I taught that were the most profitable were the ones that I was passionate about. A teacher should show excitement for what is being taught and should have interactive, fun lessons. I have taught and not been prepared or excited about the lesson and it showed in later assessments that the students didn’t learn from it. The way to impart knowledge is by getting students excited about it. There should be a joy throughout the process of teaching and that carries over into all the different areas of teaching. Overall, a great teacher cares more about the students learning than they do about accomplishing all the points of the lesson, great test scores, and perfectly organized classrooms. Ultimately, teaching is not about the teacher, it’s about the student. A teacher needs to be willing to sacrifice their plans if it is for the betterment of the student. Students all go at their own pace in their learning process and it is important to take the time to figure out what each student needs. A great teacher has in the front of their mind that the student's learning always comes first. .
