Characteristics Of An Ideal Teacher Essay

Improved Essays
When people get older, it may become hard to find a teacher who is suitable to himself. A teacher is an element everyone has in their life, whether academic or not and whether they realize it or not. If I had a chance to build an ideal teacher, I would take it. I would probably give my ideal teacher qualities most of my teachers now have. The first quality to be added to my ideal teacher would be what type of teacher, and in this case it would be academic. My ideal teacher would probably teach English. English have always been somewhat of a struggle, for as far my memory serves. Another characteristic I would add to my ideal teacher would be a good sense of humor, but also enforce clear expectations and rules. For the most part, I feel those …show more content…
English, for the most part, have always been the subject I struggled with, so I generally try to make it one of my first priorities. In years prior, my English teachers were always nice, helped with learning items better and such. I recall, in sixth grade, English have been always a struggle. One day, my teacher decided to help me. It made me ecstatic because it would help me. Ever since then, it has helped a great deal and I even made honor roll. Personally, when it comes to learning, quality teachers make all the difference in a big way. Pleasant teachers always help with concentration, and then I became particularly become interested in the material. When I become interested in material, it encourages me to study and strive for a passing grade, which is fairly …show more content…
One hobby of sorts that has always been important to me is writing. I rely on it for many things such as my choice and style of words to get my points across, and it is important that I use them correctly. Once, in fifth grade at school, I wrote a short story. I worked really hard on it, pouring my heart and soul into it. When I finished, I gave it to my teacher, with low hopes that she would enjoy it. My teacher surprised me and told me that she enjoyed my story and that she was interested in helping me develop my writing skills. Since then, my confidence in my writing has boosted and my skills have become stronger. Reading helps me concentrate on writing while helping expand my tones in used. I find that I often run out of books to read, for few books specifically seem interesting to me now. My teachers in the past would, for the most part, help find interesting books and actually read my stories. These qualities are important for me to see in a teacher, because one day I aspire to publish a book and shine light upon topics untouched and not written often enough

    Writing has always been a part of my life that I have both fond and not so good memories about it. Starting in the early years of elementary school, I can remember teachers emphasizing us to be creative in our writings so that they would stand out from the others in the classroom. Some people may think that writing is just to get through an assignment and on to the next one; however, it has always had a way of enveloping me into the writing process since high school. Throughout my English classes in high school, I grew from being an average writer, to feeling like I was excelling at my work. The process that I went through was possible because of the English teachers that I was fortunate to have my later years in high school.…

    Coffey. Until the time of my senior English, the teachers I had before Coffey was not as zealous and exciting about writing like her. I believe that Coffey’s attitude about writing assignments we had to do was the reason why I fell back in love with writing. Unlike any other teacher, Coffey put all assignments into perspective and how the topic mattered to our lives. This technique of teaching or mindset changed why I wrote.…

    Writing is one of the things that comes easy for me, but I feel that my real weakness stems from not wanting to read. Although, for the few books that I’ve read in my life, I did enjoy the reading in most cases after I got started. I take it that some people love to read, so they assume that their students or their peers feel the same way, but nothing could be farther from the truth when it comes to me reading stories. My struggle for this class will be reading all of the short stories. Once I read the story, I can very easily put the stories into writing, and give my feelings about the author and what I believe he was feeling when he wrote the story, or the message that he was trying to convey.…

    I also remember being given a photo in third grade and being asked to create a story of what was occurring in the photo. This helped us learn to use creativity and imagination in our writings. I recall having to work with teachers after class to improve my reading and writing skills. Looking back, I believe that my issue was partially because I have always been somewhat of a perfectionist. Once teachers started to stress the importance of neat handwriting, I worked very hard at making every single letter perfect as I wrote.…
