I'm a student in grade 10, i like teachers who aren't to strict but takes control of the class, i like ones who can joke around with his/her students as well as to be able to help them when they need it, i love teachers who i fell conferrable around enough that i can talk to them if some things wrong, students hate homework so try and challenge them in class, lots of projects like posters/slide shows are fun and it shows the kids its not always serious work and it can be fun, if your getting ready for an upcoming test i know a lot of my peers like to write out terms and know what the expect on a test it helps us to study and it will be more enjoyed , i hope this helps!

i like what you have to say but I think it's equally important that you focus on the content that your teachers are teaching. Conferrable-- really?! Comfortable. Spelling is just as important in high school as having 'funny teachers' and definitely expected in college.

Be very detailed in your explanations. Too many teachers skip steps or assume a student knows something they do not.

I love teachers that make class fun, super funny, talks about stuff other than school, considerate, listens to what you have to say, but knows how to take control of the class when things get crazy. I can only hope that I can be as awesome as my English teacher is this year! I plan on being a high school English teacher. :) ~Alicia

what makes a good teacher is not just someone who learns well, but also someone that takes the child personally. Not every child is the same. One might be quick to learn, while another might have a little difficulty. A good teacher does not ignore this.

a good teacher should be kind, tactful, friendly, co-operative, up-to-date,etc.The teacher should be a inspiring person, a role model for the students and teachers, should have good knowledge of his/her subject along with additional information.It takes time to be a good teacher, no one can became that easily

A good teacher is a teacher who does not favor, is kind, and has some humor, and does not just focus on academics but also physical education and other fun stuff, also a good teacher listens to what the kids have to say, and of course the teacher should be respectful to the children! :)

A good teacher is a teacher that teaches the truth and good education.Also, a good teacher doesn't get over-reactive over problems in class, and would not make a big deal over bad grades. A good teacher will help kids with problems (including bullying) instead of making it harder for them or not even paying attention to the situation.And a good teacher encourages kids to do better instead of saying "Oh, if you don't do that right you're goin' to the principal's office".

A good teacher is an individual who is a role model to students in any grade, whether they like it or not. Young eyes are watching. From Pre-K through 12th grade, college, you name it. A good teacher provides differentiated instruction to each student; provides explicit and implicit instruction as needed; teaches to the students while meeting each state standard.. shows compassion, sincerity, empathy, communicates with students and parents effectively and works their tails off at every moment from the first day to the last day of school. A good teacher teaches out of tough love to educate the young minds and sees the world through fresh eyes. A good teacher does take their work home, prays for their students to make sure they are taken care of, fed, loved and nurtured. Can you tell that I am a teacher? It is my calling and once a teacher, always a teacher.. FOR LIFE. MFA

A good teacher is cool and can relate, but can also take control and show who's boss. You have to gain respect as a teacher, and that may take some yelling, but it's necessary. I once had a teacher; Mr. Zeller, who was really cool and funny, but if you screwed with him he wouldn't just pass you by. He'd make sure you knew that what you did was wrong and that you should have respect. A good teacher also changes methods a lot to make sure everbody gets what's going on. A good teacher makes sure things are fun and not boring, but you're still learning something. A good teacher isn't all "text book" all the time.
