Attitude, skill, education, experience. You have to have the right attitude to put up with kids and the problems they give you, skillful teaching is a must, the education you've recieved or the experience you have mean NOTHING without the first two. Two years ago i had a math teacher fresh from an average grad school who taught my AP algebra class. Algebra was not my strong point, but he managed to help me out and used techniques that helped me to remember how all the rediculous equations worked. the next quarter i took the second half of the class with a teacher who had been at the school for 30 years, and had the same level of training and education. he had a sh!t attitude, and didnt give a crap about the 2 or 3 students who didnt understand, and he didnt know how to teach AT ALL. He just assigned pages and that was that. My grade dropped 2 letter grades and it never recovered. He had much more experience teaching but did a very poor job. If he'd had a better attitude about getting all of his students to have good grades he may have been a successful teacher to many more students.
