The most important quality a teacher can possess is love. A love for the children they teach, a love for their job and a love for the future. With love a child is taught with patience, given "extra" help, disciplined responsibly, encouraged and mentored with kindness. When I think of the teachers who have left imprints in my life at age 30 I remember the ones who shown love. When I see the influences of teachers in my childs life it is very clear that the ones who are kind and show him love have a great impact.

Patience, but yet creativty. All children do not learn the same and sometimes we have to think of different ways to help that child, instead of just passing them.

I believe that the most important trait a teacher can have is knowing that every child, regardless of background, race, or behavior, is capable of learning; and then having the drive to reach that child and make a difference in his/her life. Autumn H.

The best quality found in a teacher is one who serves as a parent to the students. The students look up to that teacher as if they are a father-figure, or mother-figure, to them. I feel that is the best quality to have as a teacher.

Miranda Daniels thinks that for my five-year-old hugs and affection from her teacher is a BIG part of being a great teacher.

Best quality that I think a teacher should have is love. Love for her job, her students and their education. If more teachers loved their job more than their paycheck, students would love to come to school.

Empathy - Teachers need to have the ability to bond with their students, to understand and resonate with their feelings and emotions. They need to be able to communicate on their students level.

There are two qualities a teacher needs to be "successful." First, any teacher needs to genuinely care about his/her students. Kids know when a teacher cares, and when a teacher "fakes" it.

Second, the best teachers find a way to help students discover how to become successful problem solvers. Once students can solve problems, they can be successful in any content area, as well as in LIFE!

i think patients and understanding are what i admire the most in a teacher. my daughter is sweet and kind but she also needs to be challenged and her teacher does that she use to get red lights all the time but with the teachers patients and understanding my daughter has been recieving green lights and having a blast at school so thank you to all the wonderful teachers who take the time to help and teach and even learn a few things from our children you truly make the world a brighter and more educated place

A great teacher must be attentive. They need to notice what is going on with individual students. Someone may be having an "off" day and could really use some encouraging words. It's hard in large classrooms, but an outstanding teacher will take notice.

Wow, many things go through my head on this one. Patience, love, understanding, getting to know your students as individuals, not a lump of little kids or annoying teenagers. My daughters third grade teacher knows how she likes to stand on one foot with the other in her chair when she does her class work, it helps her think for some reason. Every student I have talked to LOVES this teacher because they can see how much she loves each one of them and wants them ALL to succeed in whatever they do. I have a daughter with behavior & learning disablities that had the same teacher for two years, she helped her so much. I can't put it into words how it affected her. When she finished 5th grade her teacher made dvd's for the class with all the pics she had taken throughout the year and had it set to Rascal Flatt's "My Wish". Every time my daughter (15) and I hear it we cry. That is how much she meant to us! Thank You Mrs. Burns and M(r)s. Shipman!

A smiler. A smile goes a long way. When a teacher looks at each kid with a warm smile instead of a frown or a serious look can really start the class off nicely.
