Traits of a Good Teacher

What does it mean to be a "good teacher?" Marion Parsons was the kind of educators who, more than 30 years after her death, still inspires former students and people whose lives she touched.

This morning I was reading our introductory piece about the Cherry Road School project on the Historical Society page, about how Miss Parsons embodied the kind of teacher that students never forget, about all the cards and letters she would receive from former students years after her retirement. Then I began to reflect on what is a good teacher? We hear so many stories in the news about what's not working in education today.

If you are visiting this blog, there was probably something about Cherry Road School that affected your life in a positive way.

Please share. Please click on the "Comment" following this post and share what you believe are the characteristics of a "good teacher." We want to hear from all of you! No answer is wrong. Every response is a contribution to this online community of people who were touched by a special school in a unique American neighborhood.
