I think a good teacher is a mentor, friend, confident, good listener, patient, strict, relaxed, smart, knowledgeable, honest, not a know it all, and of course a learner themsleves.
I know that some of the points above are opposite of each other but we are only human afterall. I like the learner part myself. We are constantly changing and tweaking our lesson plans and we will be forever. Also writing and reading boards like this gives us more ideas and that's a good step towards becoming a great teacher. A person who can't see that their lessons are failing or thinks that they are great (I have met loads of these) fails completely as a teacher. There is no one complete system or perfect lesson plan!
