Abstract

This study aimed to determine both the importance order of qualities that effective teachers should have and differences between perceptions based on gender, branch and school types. Results indicated that the most important quality perceived by teachers was classroom management. Other qualities were respectively the planning of instruction, personality traits, instruction, and monitoring of student progress. Teachers did not spent enough effort to improve their qualities, and they did not care enough for pupils left behind of class. Classroom teachers attached more importance to classroom management than branch teachers. Researching of why teachers perceive classroom management as the most important quality rather than instruction, why they do not care for professional development and face to face interaction with pupils, and why classroom teachers attached more importance to classroom management than branch teachers are recommended. Also, it is suggested that the preparation and professional development activities of teachers should prioritize trainings of classroom management, instruction and monitoring of student progress.
