Algis Mickūnas’ book “School, teachers, students” (2014) and Primary education pedagogy 2nd course students’ written essays on the topic “Teacher, who I would like to follow” encouraged the introductory article for this Journal edition. Writing about teachers met during the school years, about teachers met during the studies, i.e., during a pedagogical internship or describing their imaginative teacher, students revealed their teacher competence peculiarities.
Generalising one can state, that teacher competence, described by the students, is not only education, attitudes, values and personal traits. According to students, teacher has to be modern and a person devoted to his work. This is a teacher, who notices not only a child, but also his environment; is a professional and trusts himself, and acknowledges, that he learns from students as well.
