It depends on how you define "teacher" in game terms. I expect the players to have SOME idea of what we are doing and then I show them some of the basic mechanics and move them through the game. It isn't like I'm teaching a class, which is probably why I don't rate myself very high – above average to good, but not excellent.

I envy people who can teach someone a game clearly and easily. In my opinion, Personal logo Inari7 Supporting Member of TMP is great at that, and I always mention his name when this subject comes up.

On the other hand, I find that I am horrid at teaching someone how to play a game, even a game I have designed. Heck, I can't even read a rulebook aloud without stumbling about. I would dread running a game at a convention. Yet, every day I teach literature and composition to 150 college students who claim on ratemyprofessor.com I am excellent. Who would have thought?

As a "game teacher," I would rate myself a 3 on a scale of 1-10. 10 being excellent.

Where would you rate yourself as a game teacher?
