In language arts class we are reading The Giver by: Lois Lowry. We are talking about what the ideal teacher would be like. I think the ideal teacher would be get to know their students and treat them as individuals and really get to know their students and help them. I think another important thing is using positive and negative reinforcement so if a student acts bad they get punished but if they behave well getting rewarded. A good teacher needs to know the materials inside out, and be willing to work with students that don’t understand a concept. One of the most important qualities is caring about their students. This is because a welcoming teacher is often one that students like, and pay attention to.
