Streetbeat: Teacher Qualities

What qualities do your favorite professors possess?

“Their lessons don’t feel political. They don’t lean one side or the other. You’re there to get an education, not to hear what their opinions are.”
-Wolfgang Stober, 22, Art

“It’s having consideration of other students. Communicating their thoughts, explaining why they’re teaching using this method, being helpful and guiding students to success and also helping develop interpersonal skills.”
-Jose Perez, 22, Art

“They’re very straight forward. They don’t sugar coat, but they add their own humor to it, which makes it more engaging. They’re not afraid to say anything, and it makes you feel casual and comfortable.”
-Helen Nguyen, 18, Psychology
