What Makes a Good Teacher? – The Chronicle of Higher Education


In reading this, I very much have in mind some of my favorite yoga teachers.

If one were to analyze what goes into being an inspiring teacher in this sense, the list would include enthusiasm, charisma, a capacity to clarify and make sense, humor, kindness, and a genuine interest in students’ progress. Much of this is a matter of natural capacity; which implies that teachers are born, not made; and this in turn explains why teaching is so often described as a vocation.
