What makes a teacher great?
A teacher is great when he/she has the ability to inspire, motivate, and encourage students and fellow co-workers to dream for more, to become a self-made person and reach for the stars.
No matter a person’s upbringing, education, or community if they have the drive to push through unpromising circumstances, past being unprivileged and not wealthy, knows by his own efforts he has the opportunity to become great, distinguished, and eminent. A person who has this mindset will go far in life.
A teacher who is great will instill this mindset into his students. He/she will teach them in order to become the best you must learn from the best. Mimic their success and you will soon see success in yourself.
Take a person with nothing and make him into something. Its from rags to riches. The opportunity is here in America. You have the choice to take what you want or wait for it to come to you.
