At some point in our lives, weâ€™ve all had our favorite teacher. This awesome teacher is the one who stands out among all the rest of the teachers we had and has definitely made a great impact in our lives. Below, we have gathered the five most likable traits that students remember about their favorite teachers. If you happen to know a loved one who is from this field, this is your chance to help him/her out!
#1 A teacher who believes in you
A student could not be more blessed than having a teacher who believes in him. No matter how a child poorly performs in school, it takes one great educator to see the potential in him. Everybody loves people who acknowledge our gifts and talents before we even discover them.
#2 A teacher who treats us like family
Of course, a student-teacher relationship is a mandatory etiquette. However, nothing ever beats a teacher who treats us like his/her own children by acting like our second parent. If a school is supposed to be our second home, then we surely deserve to have a second family as well. Classroom setting will never be the same if an ordinary student-teacher relationship will turn into something more significant like that of a loved one.
#3 An awesome teacher is not ONLY after your grades
Yes, our grades matter but an awesome teacher does not merely rely on that. An appreciable educator has one thing in mind – to help mold the studentsâ€™ character. Thus, he/she considers good grades as a bonus and comes second after character development.
#4 We all love a patient teacher
No matter how much a mess (oops!) we could be, a loving teacher never gives up on us. Yes, he/she may get tired at times but our favorite teacher will always, always be driven to educate us about the important life lessons. Also, significant teachers are goal-oriented and focus only on things that matter in a studentâ€™s life.
#5 An awesome teacher is the one whom everyone can talk to
Because nobody likes a terror teacher (yikes!). Most of the time, a teacher becomes our favorite when we feel comfortable and at home during class discussions and even after school hours. He/she is every studentâ€™s go-to-teacher and everybodyâ€™s friend. Plus, we never hesitate to approach him/her because this teacher always wears a perfect smile at all circumstances! But yeah, itâ€™s hard to be that all the time. Hey, no oneâ€™s perfect!
