The Makings of a Good Teacher

So much could be said about what makes a good teacher that it is almost difficult to find endearing qualities in one person. Some believe that a good personality is the most important factor and others believe that qualifications are major. Well, I really don't think that there should be a definite line of separation for both of them in teaching. For this reason I think that teaching should only attract THE BEST candidates as teachers.

Our children need confident, understanding, patient, passionate, creative and qualified persons who they can depend on for holistic learning. The best teachers are the ones who teach the whole child. The best teachers are the ones who encompass daily doses of compassion, concern, love and understanding along with curricula. I cannot see how it is possible to teach the mind without getting into the hearts of kids. While we are teaching, our children are reaching out to us in so many ways. Let's try to hold on to them when they do! :)
