  11. For a teacher to be great in my eyes, has to have certain qualities. They need to be fun and exciting to keep me up. Have different activities other than the same old reading out of a book. They need to have a good sense of humor, where they can be firends with their students and crack jokes all the time. Now good qualities of a student are having the will to work and complete every assignment that has been asked.To be able to make friends in class, and to work with them to make school easier. And finally they need to be non-procrastinate. Or other meaning, to not be late. Now for a class to have good qualities, they need to have a fun room. No boring stuff, like just walls and desks. Its got to be different than everyone else.

They should be accessible to students at times that are convenient to the student. The teacher should give the students clear and direct instructions for both homework and class work.
