What is a Good Teacher?

An interesting discussion on what it takes to be a good teacher, from The RSA and Teach First through their Education Matters Debates.

A few points I’ve grabbed that outline some characteristics of good teachers:

  • Reflective teachers who adapt to meet the needs of their learners
  • Learning with and from other teachers – an ongoing learning experience
  • Resilience
  • Those that never let failure get the better of them
  • Being tough on standards
  • Professionalism
  • Expert facilitators of peer-to-peer learning and discussion.
