A teacher is a person who facilitates education for an individual. The role of teacher is often  formal and ongoing, carried out by way of occupation or profession at a school or other place of education. A teacher's professional duties may extend beyond formal teaching. Teaching using pedagogy also involve assessing the educational levels of the students on particular skills, someone who sees what can be accomplished, not what cannot be accomplished.

There are many traits and techniques that make for a successful teacher. These maybe as varied as the teacher themselves. However, there are certain time tested attributes, characteristics and practices which contribute immensely to teacher success. The following list contains items that students have used to describe their best teachers; enthusiastic, prepared, ,punctual, supportive and concern for students, consistent, polite, firm and control, does not play favorites, provides personal help, accepts individual differences, employs an effective delivery, has high expectations of class member, humble, fair, has a sense of humor, relaxed, keeps accurate records of students and has interpersonal relationships with students.

Teachers know that to expect their students to become lifelong learners they must be willing to do the same. Teachers teach, they do not tell. Teachers know the difference in order to be able to make a difference.
