This study investigates the similarities and differences in the perception of the good teacher among a wide population, focusing on two aspects – ethnicity and gender. The research investigated whether the ethno-cultural or the gender component better explains the differences in the perceptions of these qualities and whether interaction exists between the two components. The research indicated that perception of the qualities of a good teacher is culturally dependent. The ethno-cultural origin of the group was dominant in explaining differences in attitudes towards the qualities of the good teacher and not the gender group.

Who is the ideal teacher? Am I? Similarity and difference in perception of students of education regarding the qualities of a good teacher and of their own qualities as teachers
A research into the image of the ideal teacher versus the self-image of student teachers was conducted by two groups of preservice teachers. One group was composed of teacher education students, and the other was composed of beginning teachers who were still completing their academic degrees. Interview data was collected from 89 teachers. Finding revealed two major categories of the ideal teacher: personal qualities, and knowledge of the subject taught and didactic knowledge. However, beginning teachers attributed greater importance to knowledge in terms of the ideal teacher, while students who had not begun to teach attributed less importance to knowledge as far as the ideal teacher.
