It is often easy to overlook the affect that a teacher has on her students, their performance, and the class atmosphere. Some teachers quickly put everyone at ease and encourage them to thrive. Others make their students stressed and inadvertently cause them to shut down. Why is it so? Why does it seem that there are "good" teachers and "bad" teachers? What makes the difference?
Your turn: You've been around enough teachers to identify qualities that help and qualities that hurt. Think about both. Create two lists - one that describes positive teacher qualities and one that describes negative teacher qualities.
