What are the characteristics of a good teacher?

When I was younger I wanted to become a teacher. In fact, everyone can be a teacher, but to be a good teacher you need "work"! In my opinion, there are many characteristics which a good teacher should have in order to be a well-organized and successful professional.

Firstly, a good teacher must be a good-listener and absolutely fair. He/She has to give the students the liberty to express their opinion and at the same time to recognise their efforts.

Furthermore, a teacher should have specialized knowledge, be patient and intelligent. For example, when the students don't understand what the teacher says, the teacher should explain them the same thing in a different and more simple way! A good instructor has the right knowledge to do this.

Moreover, effective teachers encourage the students to study and to try to search more in books or even better by surfing the net. For instance, my teacher in English pervaded me to create a blog to practice the language!

In addition, other important characteristics of a competent teacher is to be sociable, talkative, understanding and with a good sense of humour. In this way, the teacher can be friendly with the students while teaching them.

In conclusion, a good teacher should have all the above positive characteristics and even more in order to succeed!
