Introduction

Teachers - Life Changers Teachers have been part of our lives for many years. We learn from them, admire them, and get inspired from what they teach us. But, there have been some that have affected us students in the opposite way. With this article I shall be describing the important factors a teacher should have to be the best at his/her subject. Humour is, for me, one of the most important attributes of a teacher. Without it most of the lessons and the teachers would be considered boring and therefore would lead to the student losing interest on the subject, affecting the academic results of said student. On the other had, if the teacher was funny and entertaining, it would not only lead to a good work, but possibly a future career. So humour and the way the teacher teaches his subject can change your future. Knowledge is the most important thing for a teacher. ...read more.

Why is this though? The reason is because they are not willing to help us. They probably find our question stupid and decide to keep going with the lesson. I myself remember when I asked my chemistry teacher about polymers. She briefly looked at me, then turned around, and walked away, and left me there with my doubts. We students then have to research for our answers simply because the teachers won't answer them because they consider them stupid. Another factor that most of the time teachers don't take into account is respect. But I'm not talking about a serious kind of respect. Both teacher and student can joke about each other without the need of being disrespectful. By respect, what I really mean is, that the teacher is in no way trying to make the student feel uncomfortable or treating them like "kids", but is in fact treating them like mature young adults who are willing to learn. ...read more.

Conclusion

The way they act towards their students is really important, so the student does not lose motivation. We students need to feel the kindness of our teachers. This doesn't mean that they must not tell the students if they've done something wrong. They must help us students to advance and reach the best of ourselves. Teachers are the ones that prepare us for our awaiting future. But we students must also co-operate with them. We have to be looking forward to learn what they are trying to teach us. Humour, respect, temper, control, fairness are all attributes BOTH students and teachers should have. So when you see your teacher next time, be sure to be kind to them, and if any teacher reads this, be sure to have those attributes. "The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teaches inspires." This quote, in my opinion, shows what all teachers should aim for. For them to be labeled as "great teachers" by their students. What would we be without our teachers? ...read more.
