A "Good" Teacher

Several weeks ago, I was told by someone who had never seen me teach, "You are such a good teacher!"  I graciously replied, "Thank you!" but my over-analytical mind went straight to, "Why would you say that?  You've never been in my classroom.  Just because you heard about a cool activity I did, doesn't mean I'm a gifted teacher."

So, I began thinking, What does it mean to be a good teacher?  I brainstormed using Popplet and here's the mind map I created:
To me, being a good teacher means being an effective teacher.  I want to really impact my students' learning.  I feel that anyone can lead a cool activity; however, I want to impact the way they think.
