Re: What makes a teacher great?

Not much more than these few characteristics.

Duty (Giri), Resolution (Shiki), Generosity (Ansha), Firmness of soul (Fudo), Magnanimity (Doryo) and Humanity (Ninyo).

If a teacher is able to instill into the consciousness of students an awareness of these qualities he or she is a great teacher.
