Explore your career choice in teaching. Recall your most memorable (excellent) teacher and explain why she or he made such an impact on you.
Identify the characteristics that made him or her memorable. Do you think it is important to develop or strengthen these characteristics in your own teaching style?
Now, think of some teachers that you feel were not helpful to you as a student. What are some characteristics that you would avoid?
Please limit your responses to two paragraphs. Quality (not quantity) is the key! Try to identify the most common characteristics of both good and not so good teachers.
