10 qualities you find in good students and good citizens
Over the years, I have discovered 10 qualities in students that make them good students. To me, a good student is not always the student who gets an A. Some students can get an A without even trying, and will go to any lengths to get that A. Then there are students who work with little hearts and get a B or even sometimes a C and they are much better students than the A students we talked about above. A student is someone who wants to learn and learn to become better.
Self-discipline is of the utmost importance. If it is not present, then few of the other qualities will be found. Self-discipline means they think about their words and actions and then make choices that are right for them and others. People with self-discipline accept that things don’t always go their way. In other words, this student will finish his work before playing.
Respect for others and for property will be present in good students. They will treat others as they want to be treated. Destroying or taking someone’s property and hurting them would not be something they would do.
Persistence can be found in good students. They will work hard and not give up when the going gets tough. They stick to something until it is finished. In other words, they don’t give up, they keep trying.
Citizenship is found in good students. They obey the rules and work to make the community (school) a better place.
Compassion is present in good students. They are kind to others and help them instead of putting them down verbally and physically.
Integrity is found in good students. They make choices that help them be the best. They do what they think is right and do their best.
Responsibility is always present in good students. They are reliable and make a good choice. They take care of the things that belong to them and show more responsibility when they take care of themselves and what they do.
Reliability is a must. These students can be counted on to do the right thing even if an adult is not present. They return borrowed items and do what they said they would do.
Fairness is another trait inherent in good students. They will take turns, share and listen to what others have to say. They only take their share and play by the rules.
Honesty is found in good students. They are truthful and sincere. They will do their job and return the borrowed items. They are the ones who will make sure their score is accurate even if it means they are more wrong.
If you find these qualities in a student, you can be sure that he will be a pleasure to teach.
