I think that the qualities of a GOOD teacher are those that can teach well and give students time to learn. I think that they should also be able to listen and understand questions that the students ask. The good student qualitites are that they can also listen and those that take notes and who are honest. My expectations of this class are that we are going to have a lot of fun and that we will all go at a same pace.

A good teacher will act profesional while still having fun and being interesting. A good student will pay attention and contribute to the class without being a distraction. In this class we expect to have a good teacher and good students so we can get a lot done.

Qualities of good teachers include being willing to help and explain things to students. Another quality of a good teacher is one that doesn't lecture all day, they use different teaching methods that go with everyone's learning style.

Good students are motivated and willing to learn. They will do what is required to get the education that they need. Good students study, and do homework every night.

I expect that this class will be challenging, fast paced, but different. I am looking foward to using computers.

A good teacher has a sense of humor. They want you to have a good time in class and they should make learning exciting. A good teacher should also be willing to listen, understand, and work with students.

A good student needs to do his work and get it in on time. A good student also has to be motivated and be understandable.

My expectations of this class is that I will be able to do the work assigned to me and I will be challenged with it.

Some qualities of a good teacher are the teacher helps you when you need it. A lot of time students need help out of class with something they don’t understand and it is always good when a teacher is willing to help. Another quality of a good teacher is that they explain a lesson well.
Qualities of a good student are they listen when the teacher talks, they do what there supposed to do, and they ask for help.
This year in English I hope to become a better writer.

To me the qualities of a good teacher are when he or she thoroughly explains what they are teaching. They ask for questions about what they just thought.

A good student is one that pays attention and participates in class discussions. They should not interrupt or talk while the teacher is talking.

My expectations of this class are that I will do all my home work and will ask questions when I do not understand.

The qualities of a good teacher are that they are easy to talk to and they answer questions in the classroom. Also, a good teacher has to be patient with the students. It is important that teachers enjoy what they are doing.

A good student is one who wants to learn and improve with undivided attention. Also a good student listens more then they talk.

My expectations of this class are to become a good writer and reader because being able to express one's self is very important to being succesful.

There are many qualities to a good teacher. They have to know how to run the class smoothly. Second, they have to treat us like adults. Finally they have to be fun and make the subject they're teaching fun.
A good student also has many qualities. First he/she has to be willing to learn. Second, they have to be excited for class, participate, and listen respectfully. Lastly, they need to enjoy school.
This year I expect to learn more about writing. I also expect to get a better grade this year than the grades I have received in the past years at middle school. I want to make it a great freshman year.

The quality of a good teacher depends on the type of students the teacher has. If the teacher has bad students, I would expect the qualities to differ from the good students. If a teacher has bad students, her work would be much harder and complicated which, in turn, would make it more complicated for the students to learn. On the other hand, if the students are good, everything will work out for both the teacher and the students because the students would pay attention, listen, and learn. So, I would say that the quality of the teacher depends on the quality of the students that she is teaching.
A good student goes home after school and goes straight to their homework no matter what. They do their homework and when it is all finished, they can go do whatever they please and don't have to worry about it late at night. A good student also writes every single homework assignment down in their planners so they can keep track of the homework they need to do and also keep track of when their homework is due. Good students are attentive in class and do what they have to do to be successful.
My expectations for this year's English class is to have fun. I want to have as much fun in this class as I possibly can. English has always been one of my strengths and I expect to keep it that way.

There are many qualities I like to see in a teacher. A teacher has to listen to the students and has to help out as much as she can. The teacher also should make a class fun by playing games. The teacher should tell us like a week before a test that there is a test coming up and tell us some stuff that is going to be on the test. That way we do well and can show people that this teacher is a good teacher and can really teach. Also I think a teacher should be chalking but not to challenging. I know that I learn best when I am being challenged.
There are a couple of qualities that make up a good student. A good student needs to listen in class. They also need to make sure they are taking notes when they are needed. We a teacher asks if anyone has questions, students should not be afraid to ask the question even if they like it sounds stupid. And of course, ask a lot of questions. That is the only way you can learn.
My expectations for this class are to have fun and to improve on my writing skills.

The quality of a good teacher, depends on the way that a student prefers the teacher. For example one student might prefer a teacher that doesnt kid around, and is serious. I prefer a teacher that doesnt sound like a text book, and is easy to get along with. To me a good teacher has more commitment to the students academic needs than punishments for the lack thereof.

A good student is a student that interacts with the teacher, but not to an annoying point. Somone who overall is a good student, but isnt perfect. The perfect kids are boring and im sure that teachers like the acamdemics of perfect kids, but not anything else.
sorry perfect kids.

My expectations for this english class is to fail at everything....
haha i bet you fell for that for a second. Truly my expectations are to do everything to the best of my ability, so even if i dont get an A on everything, i know i put effort into it.

Some qualities that a teacher should have is letting the kids have fun and not lecture them the whole time in one likes to learn that way. Also i think for a student and a teacher they need to have respect for eachother. A teacher shouldn't interupt a student while he/she is answering a question. Same with the student he/she shouldn't talk while the teacher is telling the class something important.

My expectaions in this class is i want this class to stand out from my other classes. I want to have fun in this class and not worry about not wanting to come to class.

To me a teahers qualities are very important. they should be friendly towards all the students. They also need to be honest. The teacher also has to be compassionate about teaching and able to listen to the students.

A good students qualities are important in a class. They need to be respectfull to every one and they need to be eager to learn and always do there assignments.

My expectations of this class is that it is going to be a fun learning filled environment where we can work on the laptops as much as possibel and homework that is not long and boring.

Good teachers need to be able to have fun with the kids and educate them. Good students need to deal with what they are given and be willing to learn. My expectations of this class are that I will learn a lot and have fun. I also hope to meet new people and get an A!!!!

Good qualities of teachers are being patient and being educated. They need to be patient becuase kids don't listen and screw up alot, and they need to be educated to teach the material. Good qualities of a student are hardworking and good listener. They need to be hardworking to learn the material, and they need to be a good listener to learn the material also. I expect to learn what I am supposed to and have fun doing it.

Some qualities of good teachers are willing to help the students if they need help. Also, teachers have to have spirit. I love teachers that are funny and loving being around them and not scared to ask them questions.

Some qualities of students is they have to be respectful to the teachers and students. Students should also be positive because you don't want a student to turn the teacher down or the students.Also, students should pay attention and listen because if you don't then that will get you no where.

My expectations of this class is to be a good listener, pay attention, stay postive and be respectful. Those are the best ways to be a good student and in life.

Qualities of a good teacher are brown hair last name of Smith and starbucks fans,lol jk,. To me qualities of a good teacher varies from student to student. For example if they had a very smart student i would expect the teacher to not let them coast through class but to push them real hard. Oppisite if there was a less intelligent student i would expect the teacher to show alot of patience and attention to the lesser intteligent
students needs.

For the qulities of a good stdent i would say that hardworking, attenitive, and devoted are the three main qualities for a good student. If you have those i believe you will be very succesful.

My expectations for this class are lots of learning and having fun at the same time.

The qualities of a good teacher would be the ability to teach the curriculum without being boring. By making the topics interesting.
A good student would be someone who does all there homework, checks everything they do, put in extra effort, study hard, and pay attention.
In this class, my expectations are that it's going to be interesting.

I think that the main qualities that make up good teachers are that they have fun and make you have fun, if the teacher's not energetic it causes you to loose energy. Also, I agree with what Zoey said, a good teacher does need to be there to help you when you’re struggling and take their own time for their situation. But I also think a good quality that a teacher should have is patience as well as being understanding this way they can relate to the students without a lot of troubles. I think that good qualities that students should maintain are to put forth all their effort in what they do this way they can succeed. I think that students need to listen to the teacher and come to class with an open mind and positive attitude because those two features make the classroom environment and time fly by. We as well as the teachers need to remain patient then we can all get along and stay on task. My expectations for this class are to learn more about writing efficiently and how to relate in your writings to the readers.

In my opinion, would be a teacher who can does her lesson by activities not just a boring lecture. Also, the teacher sets aside time for a student that needs help or does not get it.

Good qualities in a student show that they come to class ready to learn, and not just talk with their freinds. The do there homework on time and do a good job on it.

My expectations on this class is, I think we are going to have a lot of fun but learn a lot too.
