In my Language Arts class we are reading a book called The Giver, and each year a couple of kids who turn twelve get assigned a job and they have to train for that job each day. My teacher has told us to tell her about what our ideal teacher would be. So I have had some teachers that have been so awesome and not so awesome. One way they can be awesome is how they teach me, I like it when they talk to me and explain the material to me. A not so awesome teacher would have us take notes as fast as we can and then he/she tells us to study them and learn it for the next time. I want a teacher who is fun, but smart, and can make us smart. A teacher who can make homework a hobby for us, and who can prepare us for the real world.
