  4. Qualities that I think a good teacher has are that they take time and really do one on one help with the students. They also need to easy to talk to and not intimidating their students. Then the qualities of a good student are that they respect their teacher and take time and actually listen to the advice the teachers give them.

  5. The qualities i find in a good teacher are the ones that are fun and get to know their class, not just teachers who do their job and thats it. Teachers who get to know each student and use their time to help students when help is needed. The qualities of a good student are that they use their time to come in and receive help from their teacher.They don't waste their off hours they use them wisely. The student also participates in class and is always involved. Lastly the qualities of a good class is that the class works well together and can listen to the teacher. A class that can't learn together cannot succeed. They need to be able to get work done and be respectful to their teacher.

  6. To me the qualities of a good teacher is that they can teach well and can be fun about it and they are willing to help each and everyone in their class. Some qualities of a good student includes the individual would come to class on time, do their work and be respectful of everyone in the class. The qualities of a good class is when one student is having trouble and all of their classmates would be willing to help them so they to can achieve greatness.

  8. In my opinion to get maximum education in class you need a good teacher that knows when to be serious. It is equally as important for a teacher to have a good sense of humor and be some what friends with their students. In return the students should then pay full attention to the teacher and treat their surroundings properly. The environment should be free of distraction. It should express the teacher and what the teacher wants his or her class to be like as it is the teachers office.

  9. In my opinion a good teacher is not afraid to have fun with the student and be off task but like Joseph said knows when to be serious. A good student is the exact same. I don't think any student can claim they are never off task, but it is important to make sure that you are on task when you need to be. When you put these things together, a good teacher, and good students, in effect you will have a good class.

  10. In my opinion there ware many good traits for a good teacher, student, and classroom. For a teacher good traits would have to be that they have a sense of humor that fits the class and that isnt too over the top or too dull. They have to be able to keep the class on their toes so the class stays on tasks (this is also a good trait of a student). For a student a good trait would have to be- well spoken, considerate and should always have a good attitude in class. The reason i chose those three traits in because a Well spoken person is someone people will look up to and that people will follow. If a student is not considerate they will be less likely to help people that need it and will not be as open to others as they could be finally if they don't have a good attitude in class it ruins it for the rest of the classroom. For their to be a good classroom all of the traits ive listed must be there. My reasoning for this is that if the teacher does not have a sense of humor then the class will be boring and noone will want to learn, also if the teachers classroom discussions and to-do plan for that class just repeats over and over again then the classroom will just be a boring place to learn.

  11. There are certain qualities that I look for in teachers. These qualities are very important to my success as a student. The biggest thing that i need in a teacher is that they have to push me. When the teachers expectations are low my performance in school work also decreases. Another quality I look for in a teacher is that they are fun and easy to talk to. Even though we are in class doesn't mean that we always need quiet and busy, sometimes I need a break from it all. It is helpful when a teacher needs that same thing so then I can joke around with them and relax while I am around them. A students qualities are a little different. I believe that a good student has these main qualities, responsible, outgoing, and last but not least they need to be able to learn in different ways. If a student has all these qualities they will do their work, they will share their work and will take part in class, and they will be able to learn from all their teachers. I believe that the biggest quality needed in a classroom is mutual respect. If every classroom had this nobody would be afraid to take part in class or be afraid to have a discussion that helps the class keep going. Qualities are different for every student, teacher, and classroom but the ones above are what I always will look for to have a sucsessful high school career.

  12. The qualities of a good teacher are clear. They need to make students learn to a high standards and be able to walk out knowing they learned or did something important for their future. Some teachers are all about fact, sometimes useful, mostly boring, making it hard to learn. Most of the facts wouldn't ever have a reason to make the students any smarter or more prepared for collage. Other teachers can sometimes joke to much, leaving every kids in the class with nothing for a day or maybe even a week. A good teacher will find a middle ground with a sense of humor and keeping each kid ready for a suitable career. Whats also crucial to a good teacher is getting to know the students personally to know what is going on it there life. This means mainly being a teacher and a friend. Someone to have fun during the class when all the work is done or giving breaks to kids who need them to succeed. A good classroom is very simple. Relaxed and easy to learn in is vital to each student, along with groups that can get work done and have fun. As long as each student isn't crushed into a small space with no one to talk to or work with, there will be no learning. Just like a teacher, a classroom needs middle grounds for relaxing and having fun with times to study hard and get work done.

  13. Qualities of a Teacher/Good Students

    In my opinion, a great teacher is one who gets to know the students. I think that it is really hard to learn about that amount of people in one year, but it really helps us. Also, a great teacher would interact with the students in a good way and make the class fun.

    Next, the qualities of good students are hardworking, patient and on task. The students need to help the teacher's day. If everyone is happy then it is a good classroom.

    Last of all, the class needs to work as one. If the class can work as one, then the teacher doesn't have trouble teaching.

  15. The great qualities that a teacher could have is helping kids when they need it and not saying sit down or go away. Usually when most kids ask a question its urgent as if they cant get the rest of their work don't without it. Some teachers just ignore the kid until they catch on and go sit down and waste his or her time. But thats why a teacher needs to help students be cool, nice and not taking one gender over the other (unless its a single gender class). That means not being all mean and getting mad when kids make a mistake. No one has not made mistakes in thiei life! Also in a student we should find respectfulness,responsibility and staying on task! with these 3 traits students should be able to get homework done and get grades in no problem! a Class may need to have one good trait such as getting along! if the teacher and the students get alone well then we might be more motivated to do our homework because of the fear that we might not visit the fun side of the teacher!

  16. What makes a good teacher in my opinion is one who can have fun and not be so serious all the time. A good student is one who can be respectful and knows when enough is enough. A good class is full of good students.

  17. For me a good teacher is someone who has a passion to help kids learn and love doing it every day. Also someone that has fun in a class room they need to match business with play. A good student is someone who wakes up every morning and wants to learn something new or not every day whether they’re going to school or not and is willing/joyful to get there work done for the A they deserve knowing it will help their future that much more. A productive class room to me a class were everyone feels comfortable and is somewhat willing to learn.

  18. When I think of the qualities that both a good teacher and a good student should have, many come to mind, but the three big ones would be organization, good attitude, and good work and study habits. A big quality I think they should have is to be organized. If the teacher is not organized how are they gonna get anything done in class. For a student, if they have the wrong homework for that class or forget to do their homework because they didn't write it down, that is not good. They should both also have a good attitude in class. If you walk into a classroom all mad and all you can think about is what happened last night or yesterday, you’re probably not going to learn much. Also, if you are not paying attention, you’re probably disturbing the people around you, which does not go down well with the teacher. On the other hand, the teacher needs to have a good attitude as well. Kids will want to pay attention more and interact with the teacher in class more if the teacher is happy and is in a good mood, not if he or she is grumpy and mad. Last, the teacher and students should have good work and study habits. The teacher should model what he want his students to do. If you’re a student and your teacher is always late and breaking the rules, his students will start doing what the teacher is doing and can gte into lots of trouble. All in all, there re many thing that a good student and teacher need to have but, three of the main things are to be well organized, have a good attitude, and have good work and study habits.

  19. A teacher who cares about what the students may need, not just class things but also maybe out of school problems. Also a teacher who will smile and be happy while giving class so that everything is easier. Students should always listen, not talk while teacher is talking and be respectful to teacher and classmates.

  20. My opinion of a good teacher is teaching their students and having a good attitude every day. Teachers should also care about their students and help them succeed. Good student should turn in their work and are responsible to do their work. A good class asks questions and listen to each other and understand what is going on.

  21. When the words good teacher, good student, or class here is what comes to mind. First i think of a very respectful teacher that's very helpful but has positive criticism. A good student in my mind is someone who can have fun in class but is a hard worker when it comes down to crunch time. Also good students are responsible and do their homework The class well, in my opinion are kids who can respect the teacher and do their homework 99% of the time and can respond well to tough questions. There is usually teamwork in good classes. Honestly this is a dream class and these type of classes don't happen very often. I hope and I pray we have a good class and have a great year!

  22. When asked, “What are good qualities of students, teachers, and classes,” some may say that they turn in home work, listen to students, and work together. But that’s not the gist of it. The solid foundation of learning is the cohesion of all three. For the teacher to get along with the students, the class has to work together to solve problems and find a happy medium. For a student to participate in the class, the teacher has to be sympathetic to a student even if they have the answer wrong. But some major qualities of a good student would definitely be organization, respect to the teacher and the class. An organized student always meets a due date because they know when one comes up. A respectful student never misses a chance to help the teacher or another student that doesn’t understand the material. All teachers need to be energetic, “as not to be boring” and never to easy. I have had a few boring teachers in the past and let me tell you, I didn’t learn much. With previous teachers that were exciting, I was more eager to learn and I was a better student. Teachers always have to assign work that matters, not just to give extra work. But on the flip side, a good teacher should never be to easy and never not hand out work for the students to practice what they learned. The class, is a machine, a mind of its own. When use correctly, the class can create academic master pieces! Used incorrectly, you may find students bullying one another or not participating in class. It is very hard to balance these three elements, but once you find the perfect concoction... lets just say there will be a little zen and peace in every ones life.

  23. Expectations

    I think that qualities of a good teacher are that they help if needed but overall it is my choice on whether or not I want a good grade.
    I think that qualities of a good student are that they do their homework and do what is important first before they goof off.
    Qualities of a good classroom are that there is respect amongst everyone and that the kids and teacher are willing to help each other.

  24. To me a good qualities of a teacher is someone who cares. What I mean is a teacher that will do their best to help their students in anyway. For example a student wants to sit up in front of the class so they can learn better and its best for a teacher to make that seating arrangement. Good qualities for student are students that always pay attention. Paying attention can help students in alot of ways. It lets them know when assignments are, take good notes prior finals and its easier for the teacher.

  25. When I think of good qualities that both a teacher and student shoud have alot come to thought, but the most important one to me is respect. To have the up most respect for yor teacher is a very good thing, because if you respect your teacher than I believe that they should respect you as well. To go along with that I think that both a techer and student shold listen. When a student should listen /she should listen out of respect not because he/she has to. If a student were not to listen that student will fall behind very quickly he/she will not pay attention to the lessons and miss big things within in the lessons, and eventually begin to fail. Now when it comes to teachers in my opinion I feel they should get a little more slack because they have 150 to 200 students to lisen to a day. So I feel that they should still listen to there students but its ok for them to forget every once in a while,but teachers should not use thisas an excuse for poor teaching. to wrap it up orginization is one of the most important qualities i think. this qualities determines how well youll suceed in the future. If you have no orginization than you have no future what so ever... unless som how you get really lucky. If a teacher has no orginization than were just wasting class time and like Jimmy H said we arent going to get anything done, because the teacher has nothing of what he/she needs. If a student has no orginization than there allready headed for some bad grades. Say your in english but all your papers are just thrown into either folder 1 or folder 2 and you have no idea which one you put all your english stuff in, now I think your in trouble. Because of pure laziness to organize your papers your now failing in school because your so unorganized. If all things here are good like good orginization respect and listening skills well than I think you'll do fine and if everyone has all those things and are good at them than that benefits the class as a whole making it an over all good class.
