What’s a Successful Teacher? Dear future teachers at ABC College of Education, A successful teacher in my opinion is someone who is a good listener, understands the students and the lessons she teaches, they also get a connection with the students, respect every one’s learning disabilities or advantages, they should be caring, relaxed when necessary. and finally make learning fun and as easy as you can as a teacher. The teacher should be a good listener when it comes to being a good teacher in us students lives. To be a good listener you should listen to what their strengths are and weaknesses are. Being helpful is a good way to listen because they might say I need help but you don’t hear them, you should never pick a favorite student because than the other students might feel they don’t deserve to be listened to or they’re not good enough. Understanding students is a key way I have known to get along with teachers. To understand the students maybe ask them questions that you don’t know about them, like their strengths and weaknesses in life and in school. I feel that is a great way to understand a student by just getting to know who they are. This may seem like a lot to do but I feel a better connection with some of my teachers when they ask me more questions like; “What’s your favorite subject?” Or,” What’s your favorite thing to do on weekends?”Even, “What did you do this weekend?” I love when teachers make learning fun. Some of my teachers make learning fun by playing educational games like; jeopardy, name games, matching games, mystery games. Things like that. I also love watching movies in class. For example; “Pearl Harbor”, ” Saving Private Ryan” , “Supersize me”, or “Where in the World is Osama Bin laden.” those are some of my favorite movies and games. In conclusion I feel that these are only some of the many ways to be a successful teacher.
