Creativity, imagination, and curiosity. The same things that make a good student. These are absolutes. Creativity is intelligence having fun.

The great teacher inspires.” ― William Arthur Ward

 To me the ideal teacher is one who listens, admits they don't know everything, and bends with the breeze to make learning a wonderful experience for their student(s) and themselves.

I think the ideal teacher is one that is very excited about the subject and that excitement just helps pick up the kids and carry them with her.

I'm sure there are other traits, but excitement and joy are two things that keep my kids going strong in something.

I think the ideal teacher loves learning.  Loves the topic.

I completely agree! A love of learning by the teacher will be shared w/ the students.

Inspiration.
I think a teacher who inspires a student to do more than that student ordinarily would do, is an ideal teacher.
