Okay Most of us here have either finished school or are still in school, but I think we all have a favorite teacher. So from your years in school who was your favorite teacher and what made them your favorite?

Note: I did not see any Topic like this that was open, however I did see something called Best Teacher Award, but it was closed and the last post was from 2007 or 2008. If by any chance I overlooked something you may lock this Topic and post a link to the existing one.

I would say my Math teacher because he made Math easy to understand. I never was good at it, but with him I was able to understand it better. He also would take time out of his free time( when he wasn't teaching a class) to help his students. Thanks to him I was able to bring my grade up and enjoy the class. He also had a very unique sense of humor that you can never forget. He was one of those teachers that loved what they did and cared about his students.

I tend to love strict teachers because I actually learn new things in their class.

Another quality that is a must for me is creativity. If they're just strict but not creative, I don't really like that. I don't like it when they tell us to read from books and answer questions. These were my music/history/physics/chemistry/maths/english teachers. So yeah... like 95% of my high school teachers were not creative teachers. And just made school a boring place for me.

I didn't realize it at the time when I was a high student. But when I was in my early 20's, I realized that making students read from textbooks by themselves is a lazy way for teachers who don't want to put any preparation into their lessons. This was my 80% of my lessons. :-/

__________

After analysing all that, I think my favourite teacher was from Grade 7, my English teacher. I still remember her name, but I won't say it here. She looks like Gwyneth Paltrow... she was so beautiful... and creative.

Her story textbooks are always interesting, she gave us this novel called, "My grandma has false teeth and other embarrassing stories"... that was a really fun read. Basically it was about embarrassing parents and grownups... like a mother holding a 14 years old girl's hands while crossing the street... and the kids get embarrassed xD.

We filmed a film called, "The Secret Gardens". Based on the original film...


Anyway, English lessons were so fun with her. After that, for 5 consecutive years, I had really sh*tty English teachers... with really boring novels... and I couldn't wait to get out of school... because everyday was so BORING.

I liked my Human Anatomy and Physiology teacher. He didn't try to engage me in any way. He taught, I learned, then I left. I hate teachers that are whimsical or think that they're melting their students' faces with knowledge.

I would agree with you about strict teachers. Even though I have liked teachers who weren't strict, I saw them more like a friend than I did a teacher. I really hate when the teacher just makes us read in textbooks instead of actually teaching.
My Math teacher would get up in front of the class and teach.............he would really get into the lesson. He allowed us to have fun in class as long as it related to Math, but he had no tolerance if it didn't.
To me stuff like that makes a great teacher and I have a lot of respect for them.

My physiology teacher from high school. She was just the sweetest woman ever and she didn't take crap from students who thought it would be cool to be jerks to her. Also, she always had candy. Lots of it.

My grade 5 teacher, easily. She was really pretty, helped us a lot of times, was particularly nice to me because I gave her a gift once, and she didn't yell at me the one time I sneaked a peek up her dress when she sat down in our group circle to assist us with our project, and I'm fairly sure she noticed. (Don't judge me, I was young and curious) ^-^

My eighth grade English teacher. He appreciated my humor and he even helped me with my math homework. And one time I wrote a horror short story set in the early 1800's in England, and he read it in an exaggerated feminine voice in an accent and I don't think I've heard so much laughter in a class before.
