Educators: Teacher attributes that parents like most

Why do some teachers get along well with parents … and others don’t?

Research points to several personal attributes that have a positive influence on teachers’ relationships with both parents and students: warmth, openness, sensitivity, flexibility, reliability and accessibility.

Parents say that these teacher characteristics are also desirable: trust, closeness, positive self-image, effective classroom management, child-centeredness, positive discipline, nurturance, and effective teaching skills.
