It's rather bothersome to me when people think of "good teachers" as "someone who is very knowledgeable in a particular area who also is a professor". While the trait of being very smart is a great thing, it should not be coupled with that person's ability to convey that information. To me, these are two different things. It's my firm belief that a "good teacher" is more than just someone knowledgeable in a subject matter. They must be able to use their knowledge and also form a sensitivity to a student's state of mind in order to create the necessary amount of impact which is needed for a student to retain that information. That to me defines a "good teacher". This is what I try to achieve when in a teaching context.
