What makes a good teacher?

  • “A good teacher must be patient, understanding, confident and fair. They must be willing to repeat things and listen when you need help. One of the MOST important things though, is that lessons are made fun and interesting, we tend to learn more if they are!” Kim, 10, Glasgow
