Gone are those days, now students are more difficult to handle, it's like herding the sheep on a busy city road. The teacher has to keep on eye on many things, performance, behavior, bullying, fighting and at times infatuation, using of gadgets in class and sadly violence that some students exhibit at a young age. On top of this is the deadlines and expectations from parents and management.
Yes, a teacher needs all, patience, passion, additional support (classroom assistant), innovative thinking, sublime pressure and tactics of discipline to get the students to perform.
A teacher, with experience, will have the capacity to control students and introduce the subject in such a manner so as to reach every student irrespective of their capabilities. This definitely depends on the capability of the teacher. Having taught for more than 35 years, I feel that a teacher can change the approach based on the standards of students.

It is really a great challenge for a teacher to bring the dull students even to the average understanding of the subject.
To some extent the problem can be managed by taking extra tutorial classes for them but it becomes extra strain on the teacher concerned.
Knowledge is power.
There are many such teachers in fact who teach in such a way. In our school also, we had our English teacher, she used to teach us literature. The way of teaching she had was lovely.
She used to explain us every little word, with brief explanations by taking live examples. During our graduation also I remember, we had a teacher of a management subject named "Entrepreneurship development process". We were always bored with this subject. Our teacher had a nice way of teaching us, he used to talk about real life scenarios on any particular topic which was there in the book and used to discuss in that way. Discussing the opinion of almost everyone in the class. This way we enjoyed studying his class, rather than bunking. So, it really matters.
