Education gives us the knowledge of the world around us. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on everything in life. Education is one of the greatest services provided by teachers. Schools are one of the first places where kid’s behavior and future educational success is shaped. The role played by teachers becomes important and it can be said that they are in a way our nation builders. Teachers work in close co-ordination with students to help them in building up their future. In my view teachers are the succeeding mothers for the students because students spend most of their time with their teachers. We can say that mothers are not born as great mothers but their experiences with their kids develop their expertise in the field of motherhood. Teachers play the same vital role as mothers play for their kids. Like mothers, teachers also shower their care, love, respect, lead and instruct for the betterment of their students.
I have come across varied types of teachers in my life. Some were good while some were best. There were teachers with great knowledge of the subject but were least impressive in their teaching methods, while some of the average teachers encouraged their students and benefited them in most promising way. I have not found a teacher who is an expert the first day of their profession. I believe that a teacher is someone who becomes through many years of training and experiences in the field.
My experience says that teacher should also have fun with the students. Students learn quicker when they are attracted to an exciting lesson. Most of the teachers do not believe in this as they feel that it spoils the decorum of the class. The teacher needs to show respect toward the students so that students also respect the teacher. I believe a teacher should also be someone who guides student rather than someone who is a totalitarian in the classroom.
A good teacher in fact becomes a role model for students. Students tend to follow their teacher in almost every way. The teacher’s caring attitude will have an influence on students. Student’s self-esteem could be lift up because it could create ambitions in their minds for future academic success. So the teacher should have the professional competence as well as good moral background in order to impart these values to students.
