What makes a good teacher? ๐Ÿค”

You know when someone compliments you on a good quality you haveโ€ฆ

โ€œ๐˜ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜บ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ถ๐˜ข๐˜ญ.โ€

โ€œ๐˜ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฌ ๐˜ฆ๐˜น๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฅ.โ€

These are the ones Iโ€™ve been hearing.

My typical response is, โ€œ๐˜ ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜ด ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ญ.โ€

My parents deserve full credit for teaching me to be disciplined and meticulous. ๐Ÿ™Œ

When people tell me, โ€œ๐˜ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข ๐˜จ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜จ๐˜ข ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ.โ€

I used to say, โ€œ๐˜•๐˜ฐ, ๐˜ ๐˜ข๐˜ฎ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต. ๐˜ ๐˜ข๐˜ฎ ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜บ๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜บ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ.โ€

Nowadays, I would proudly take the compliment, and I would say,

โ€œ๐˜ ๐˜ข๐˜ฎ ๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ถ๐˜จ๐˜ฉ๐˜ต ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ญ.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜Š

The more I learn about other peopleโ€™s yoga journeys and teaching paths, the more grateful I am to have such ๐—š๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—”๐—ง ๐—ง๐—˜๐—”๐—–๐—›๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—ฆ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐— ๐—˜๐—ก๐—ง๐—ข๐—ฅ๐—ฆ.

So what makes a good teacher?

๐Ÿ‘‰ A good teacher knows how to bring out the best in students.

๐Ÿ‘‰ A good teacher creates an environment in which students can learn rather than just teach.

I remember a quote from Socrates, โ€œ๐˜ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜บ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฅ๐˜บ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜บ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ, ๐˜ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฌ.โ€

And here is another quote, โ€œ๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ด ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฌ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ถ๐˜ต ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏโ€™๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ.โ€ โ€“ Alexandra K.
