Characteristics of a good teacher

This essay describes the qualities of a good teacher. How can a teacher be an ideal teacher? What are the qualities of an effective teacher? How can a teacher be successful and popular among the students? 

Qualities of a good teacher

Here are the qualities of an effective and good teacher.

1. Love his profession

A teacher should love his profession. There are many teachers who are teaching but at the same time, they are criticizing the teaching profession. They do not get respect in the teaching profession because this is a natural law that if a person does not give respect to his profession he does not get respect from that profession.

Every professional man should give respect to his profession. He belongs to any profession the first duty of a professional man is that he should give respect to his profession. He is a lawyer, doctor, and businessman what profession he has he should give respect then he can get respect from that profession. Many people adopt a very minor profession but they can earn respect and good status in this profession because they devotedly work.

2. Maintain justice in the classroom

The second quality of a good teacher is maintaining justice in the classroom. A teacher is a good judge he should have the quality of a judge. If a teacher cannot maintain justice in the classroom he can be a good teacher.

Many teachers give favor to particular students and ignore some students. In this way, they lose their respect in the eyes of their students. A teacher should treat every student on an equal level. Every student should be equal in the eyes of a teacher but it is observed that male teachers give favor to female students and female teachers give favor to male students. All the students should be equal in the eyes of a teacher.

3. A good psychologist and Diagnose the student's problems

A good teacher should be a good psychologist if a teacher is not a good psychologist he cannot be a good teacher. He cannot understand the problems of his students. If a teacher has not the quality of psychology he cannot understand the problems of his students. For example, if I am a teacher and I am delivering a lecture to my students and I am communicating in the English language but my students are not understanding my speaking.

They are not understanding me but I continue my lecture for an hour after one hour I came to know that my students did not understand me. It's mean that I am not a good psychologist. If I am a good psychologist, I should understand during my lecture that my students are not understanding me so I should change my technique immediately according to my student's level.

If a student is not showing good performance in his studies we believe that he or she is a dull student without diagnosing him that what is a problem with the student. We always blame the students but do not diagnose where the problem is? Maybe the problem is in the teaching methods of a teacher but he always blames his students and does not try to understand the problem. If a teacher is a good psychologist then he can diagnose the problem and try to resolve it. A good teacher should be a good psychologist.

4. Method of teaching

I am discussing the general qualities of a teacher, not professional expertise. Method of teaching is very important and plays a vital role in making a teacher a poor teacher and an ideal teacher in the eyes of his students. Many teachers are low qualified but their method is very good that is why they become good and ideal teachers in the eyes of his students. A teacher can adopt any method but he should keep one in his mind that it should according to the mental level of the students. A teacher’s method should be according to a student’s natural style then his method will be more effective and students can understand him.

5. Knowledge of the subject

A teacher should be an expert in his subject. He should have complete knowledge of his subject. He should refresh this knowledge continuously. A good teacher should improve his knowledge of his subject. A teacher should continue the study his subject and get command of his subject knowledge. It is believed that a good teacher should expert in all subjects. It is considered that a good teacher should be an expert in all subjects. This is the wrong concept a good teacher should be an expert in his subject.

6. Motivate his students

A good teacher should motivate his students. He should develop an interest in students regarding his subjects. There are two types of motivation negative motivation and positive motivation Negative motivation included corporal punishment, fine, and insult, etc. In positive motivation included giving the prize. Some people believe that negative motivation is more effective. Some people believe that positive motivation is more effective.

Negative motivation is like smoking it gives temporary benefits. A teacher may show good results and maintain discipline but it has a negative effect on student personality. Positive motivation has a permanent positive effect on a student’s personality. A good teacher should use a positive type of motivation.

7. Respect his students

A good teacher gives respect to his students. It is a natural law that if you do not give respect you cannot receive respect. If a teacher does not give respect to his students his students do not give him respect. If a teacher does not give respect to his students he cannot earn respect.

8. Practical Nature

A good teacher should be practical. What does he say his students he should do himself? For example, if he gives advice to his students not to tell a lie or not to smoke but he himself is smoking before his students the students do not obey his advice. A teacher should practical in his nature. Many teachers complain that students do not obey him and don’t follow his advice. The reason is that they are not doing the things which they are expecting for his students.

9. An ideal personality

A good teacher should be an ideal personality. He should be a blunder of multiple qualities. He should have the qualities of a professional man, the qualities of a judge, and the qualities of a psychologist. He should be an ideal person because students idealize him in their life. A good teacher should have multiple characteristics then he can be a good and ideal teacher

10. Role of pilot

A teacher role is like a pilot role. If a pilot is not fit he may crash his airplane and destroy hundreds of lives. A teacher can also destroy many students’ lives if he is not fit mentally and spiritually. A bad and unfit teacher is more dangerous than a bad and unfit pilot because a bad pilot can destroy 3 or 4 hundred of lives only once and he killed himself.

A bad teacher can destroy many students he save himself. Teaching a job is a very sensitive job because he can save many student's lives and destroy many student's lives. A teacher can affect life on a very large scale that is why a teacher in any society is very important. A teacher should be selected very carefully because a teacher's role is very important in any society.
