Today we did a lesson on good and bad teachers, which has really got me thinking, "what makes a good teacher?" everyone seems to have different opinions on this. I have professors at my university that I love, meanwhile I have friends who hate them, and vice versa.

I like to use "Rate My Professor" on Myspace before I  sign up for classes so I can see what other students say about the professor. It has different categories to grade the professor, such as grading, lectures, fairness, etc. It's always nice to have an easy professor, but even if they grade tough I'm OK with it as long as they seem passionate about the subject matter. You can tell when a teacher is emotionally invested in their work.

What qualities do you guys look for in a teacher?

 Yeah Devan I think with u on points that there're many categories to grade the professor but I'd also write bad grades. When I was at the university I didn't love professors that played favourites! Such teachers appreciates student by their countenance and by their close feelings to them. They're just like judge the book by it's cover. I think professors should  judge students by their brain even if he's personally hatred by one of them.
