    Smile A GOOD TEACHER IS LIKE A CANDLE - it consumes itself to light the way for others.

    HI,

    I opened this topic to find out your ( both teachers' & students') opinions about how you would describe a good teacher. For instance, if you have a 'problem class' where most of the students make troubles, disturb you class etc, what would you do? Would you scream at them? I recently found out that a good teacher never screams at his/her students, even if their behaviour is not adequate. A good teacher always have to find a solution ( gesticulate, modulation of voice, change the activity etc) to make the students to be interested in the field s/he teaches. So how would you describe a good teacher?

    A good teacher is patient. He (or she) is also courteous.

    Hmmm...I don't see a teacher as a candle consuming itself to light the way for others. Rather as a torch which spreads light and grows brighter at the same time - with every pupil she/he gets.

    I think Bianca it is can be both a torch or a lamp. A lamp or a torch can indeed become brighter until all its energy is lost (like the sun powered by hydrogen) depending upon what and who you teach. I have seen teachers (primary school) completely exhausted and on the verge of losing theír nerves. Some even go as far as saying: I would never want to be a teacher again. What about a teacher being a mirror and a lamp in one illuminating and learning at the same time.

    I think it all depends on whether you regard teaching as a job or a vocation.

    hi,

    A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others. This statement refers to teachers who do their job (of teaching) with passion and love.
