What in your opinion is an excellent teacher? Have to write an essay on this and any thoughts would be welcome as I know this forum contains many, many many excellent teachers! :o



Thank you

When I did my initial teacher training, we were taught that we were 'faciliatators on a child's journey through life and learning'. Even though I didn't go into teaching, this stayed with me through my career in Early Years.


Plus all the usual things - enthusiasm, zest for life, recognising each child as an individual and what that brings to the classroom, and being a good listener and being able to respond to what you hear.

Ask the children - they'll know!


I used to teach year 6 - as well as the things that other people have said - they used to like boundaries. They also liked achievable challenges - one boy said to me that it made him feel good about himself as he really felt like he had achieved.
