Teachers play an important part in training children, students and even peopple in their early maturity. It is a right way to say that a country’s education depend highly on teacher’s qualities. In my opion, a good teacher that are crucial for determining one as a good teacher are teacher’s sound knowledge in his major and its related fields, certain devotion to and great love for his students and his ability to inspire the students’passion for studying, beside, either in or out of class.
Firstly,the first criteria of a good teacher is his devotion to teaching, and great love for his students. I think this is a very important thing, because it makes him feel excited that creats a great creativeness in work when he meets his students. With this, he is always willing with his students who are not mature enough to hehave properly always, they are sometimes very stubborn. So, a good teacher must have ability to handle his students’problems in gentle and effectionate manner. He should pay adequate attention on the students and know how to keep calm in any situation, so that he can give his students some advices when they are in need or help them to distinguish the right from the wrong. That means he is always ready to accept any the students’mistake.
Secondly,there is no doubt about his the teacher’s knowledge. In addition to his professional knowledge, a good teacher is also a patient man who always likes to enlarge his general knowledge on politics, economics, law, psychology, society, humanity, history, methodology,ect… to provide his students with what they want to know, satisfy their good curiosities or meet their requirements in some cases.
Last but not least, a good teacher is always successful in inspiring his students’passion for studying both under his guidance in class or out of class by themselves. I highly appreciate this third quality of a good teacher because of its undeniable value. It is not easy to provide his students with required knowledge in classtime, therefore, the teacher should manage to make his students motived enough to carry on their motive and sucessful self-study at home. Obviously, teaching the students how to study independently, creatively and effectively is what a good teacher must do in academic setting.
In conclusion, to be a good teacher, anyone who devotes himself to “coinage” of a succession of young generations must keep on working really hard to widen his skill and general as well as professional knowledge, to accumulate experience in how to deal with students properly and to be able to inspire in students the true love, the increasing hopes and the ever-lasting enthusiasm to reach higher and higher levels of education in their life.
