Traits of a Good Teacher (from MFS Newletter Oct. 2012)

In the last newsletter, we questioned the necessity of a teacher. We pointed out that the most important thing for learning is the learners’ selfmotivation. However, it is also true that we can always benefit from good teachers. But who are they? Good teachers would see their students as they are, without judgment or comparing them. Good teachers would let their students work following their natural interests, without coercing them. Good teachers would be responsive and flexible, without being stuck to their own expectations. And, good teachers would let their students be free from anxiety, without using punishments, rewards, or competitions.
