Q&A: What Makes a Great Teacher?

February 05, 2009 1 min read

Read the transcript of a Q&A with Robyn R. Jackson, author of the recently published Never Work Harder Than Your Students & Other Principles of Great Teaching.


In her book, Jackson professes that any teacher can become a “master teacher” by developing a mindset based on seven key principles. These include: “Start where your students are"; “expect to get students to their goal"; and “focus on quality rather than quantity.” We’ll ask Jackson about her philosophy and how it can help educators today.
