I've been teaching for over 19 years.
I believe an outstanding teacher is organized, prepared, flexible, and creative. The teacher should be very familiar with developmentally appropriate practice. A willingness to include families and build a caring classroom community is essential to the outstanding teacher. Also, the outstanding teacher sets clear expectations, encourages children to make choices and ask questions, and fosters a love of learning and literature.
