4 Qualities of a Good Teacher
There’s something that makes our teachers recognizable in a good way and once we end up appreciating our teacher, we then slowly begin to learn a little more from them. The thing about good teachers is that they become really admirable to us. Once we admire something, we end up paying a little more attention to what we admire. Attention is one thing, but once we’ve fully dived into curiosity, there’s no stopping us from learning great things.
Here are a few things that make up a great teacher:
Since we enroll in our classes to learn, a wise teacher is definitely someone we look up to. The problem with some teachers is that although they are knowledgeable, they are not wise. Okay then, what is wisdom? Wisdom is the application of knowledge, knowing when and what to use for certain situations around. It’d be much better to learn business from an entrepreneur who has made up a huge company rather than just learning from someone who took masters at a business school.
Don’t get us wrong, if you graduate from Master’s in business school, you are truly knowledgeable! But not everyone who knows, knows what to do when the situation approaches. This is what makes the entrepreneur wise, he’s been through the experience himself.
It’s pretty hard for you to learn from someone who you can’t connect with. Connecting with your teacher is very important. Teachers who are willing to connect with you on a personal level are the best. Not only does it feel better to be their student, you connection comes with more importance to what they say. Giving importance to someone’s words is a great way for you to be able to remember it.
Aha! We all love a teacher who is charismatic. Not only can they grab your attention, they hook you in with their oozing charisma. From the way a teacher greets you to the way they explain their lesson, there’s something about the way they communicate or maybe even present themselves. It’s really hard to turn your eyes and ears away from a charismatic teacher.
Last but not the least, we need a teacher who is skilled at doing what they are teaching, a person who can walk his talk. This is a basic trait every teacher is required to have and this is why we should give our respects to every teacher out there.
A great teacher only comes by once a while. Make the most of the time you spend with your teacher and make sure to learn and absorb as much as you can from them. Don’t let the opportunity pass you by as you might regret not learning a little more.
