Surveying people: what makes teachers great?

Hi friends!

After a fantastic conversation with Jasmine and Meg in Burlington this weekend, I've got a question burning inside: what is it that makes teachers great?

We've all had them: teachers whose presence in our lives marked a turning point, an alchemical moment when we were transmuted into something different. Teachers without whom we would have ended up in very different places from where we are today.

I'd like to ask you some questions about yours, if you don't mind. I put together a brief survey (which you can find here) with a few questions about your experience with teachers. It shouldn't take you more than about five minutes. Will you help? Feel free to pass the link (or this page) to friends--I'd love to have a bigger data set.

Once I've gotten a bunch of responses, I will post some data analysis to this blog. I think it will be interesting to see.

Here's the link to the survey again. Thanks so much for your help!
