Over the past few months I have been engaged in activities at our school that have made me ask the question, what makes a teacher great? If you have a moment, please think about the best teacher you ever had in school. (Your favorite teacher might not have been your best teacher. I am looking for the qualities of a great teacher, not a popular one.) In the comments, list the qualities that made that teacher great, the things you remember that helped you learn effectively or love a particular discipline. Thank you so much for your help.
