Abstract: Many factors contribute to excellent teaching; among them are scholarship, technical skill, and equipment. These, however, are insufficient if the teacher's personality is poor. A good personality is emphasized and recognized by parents, teachers, and children. Inasmuch as many parents and children, in commenting on the excellence of certain teachers, evaluate them in terms of personality, it should be helpful to beginners in the profession to examine the characteristics of an experienced group of teachers judged to be excellent by their clientele. The outstanding significance of the personality of the teacher is emphasized in the writings of nearly all authorities on school problems.
