What Qualities Make the Best Teachers?

What Qualities Make the Best Teachers? | Teaching | Scoop.it
A good teacher personality is sometimes hard to find. Most people who have gone through school have found some exceptional personalities, sure, but also some that are not fit for the job. If you are hoping to join the field, or if you are wondering what really makes a good teacher, there are quite a few things that you have to consider. If a teacher is able to have the perfect type of personality, and is able to do their job well, they will be able to see a lot more success and will be able to motivate their students in ways that other teachers never could.
Janet Jacobs's insight:

We frequently post articles about the paper-qualifications for becoming a teacher. Certifications, education, etc... But what about personal traits? They may not necessarily be a requirement but there is certainly a personality type that is best suited for teaching.

What is defined as a professor and where they work as opposed to what a teacher is and where they work. A professor can be classified as a primary instructor.
