Being that I'm in the process of watching "13 Reasons Why", I am tempted to say that just as there are good people and bad people in the world, there are good teachers and bad teachers in the world — but obviously more bad teachers than good teachers. But good and bad are relative terms. I think the general consensus on what makes a good teacher is a teacher that gives the students good grades. This definitely sounds immature and self-serving, but students work hard and want to be acknowledged for it.
DEMOCRACY AND EDUCATION
Why Nerds are Unpopular
Technically, teachers are not evaluated on how good students perform on these tests, but feel as if they are held responsible when students fail. They would rather guide their students to work diligently and master the test information, instead they spend valuable time preparing students for these test. Teachers are there to teach students and help them enjoy their time spent at school. Instead students are bored by teachers and are growing to hate them.
I want to give myself the opportunity to become a teacher, and help students to grow academically and emotionally to become successful in society. That is why it is so important for me to become a teacher at the elementary school level. I think that if smaller children learn in a very positive and enthusiastic way, they will learn more easily and will be more open to different learning tasks in the classroom. I think that a teacher can also help all students to obtain very high self-esteem, growth and integrity. A teacher can become, in certain ways, like a parent and most importantly, a friend.
Teachers can be loving, involved, and caring. But some can be unfair and egotistical. A good teacher should make her students excited to come to school each day. A good teacher should respect her students, make them feel comfortable in the classroom, and be consistent.
