After doing the readings for class, and after discussing what makes a good student, I have come to the conclusion that there is no such thing as a perfect or ideal student. I would hope that my students would come to class being prepared and wanting to learn – being enthusiastic, and engaged in their learning. I would hope that they would listen, and question what they are learning. I know that this isn’t going to be true in all cases, but I guess that is part of the challenge of becoming a teacher. We need to make the students want to be there, want to come to class everyday excited, well rested, and ready to smodelshe next task at hand. We need to be the role models and we should inspire the students, encourage them to be themselves and want to excel.
