What makes a good teacher?

Each month, I like to post a question for the teachers at one of our sites to ponder over and leave a quick response to; I realize this is one of those things that I should be doing with all of our sites and plan to as soon as I can find a safe place to post such an activity!  I love their responses!

What do you think makes a good teacher?  What's the difference between a good teacher and a great teacher?


  1. Oh, my goodness - I think I could write an entire book about this topic:) I look forward to seeing the answers you get!

  2. passion . wow just was talking about this with other early ed teacher last night . good teacher do what needs to , follow rules and so one but the line for me is i have passion for my job . am sure to much sometimes . I enjoy and love my job .. Can wait to see what other think .

  3. A good teacher is one who plans for the children and reflects on their learning and interests. A great teacher is one who has respect for little people and their interests, needs, and choices.
