What is the role of a good teacher in a student’s life?

A good teacher in the life of a student is everything.

“If you have to put someone on a pedestal, put teachers. They are society’s heroes.” – Guy Kawasaki

And it holds true. Teachers are heroes that don’t wear capes and are incredibly giving. Their words and their actions have the power to elevate a student’s life and even shape his/her career path. A student always looks up to their teacher, they are a child’s first role model.

Teachers play an important role in society by helping to mold young minds and prepare them for the future. How does a good teacher influence a young adult’s life?

Providing the guidance and the support they need

As educators, is the responsibility of a teacher to provide students with the guidance they need to be successful both in and out of the classroom!They help them identify their strengths and weaknesses, and then direct them towards the best practices for achieving their goals. In doing so, they not only teach them valuable academic skills, but also important life skills like communication, compassion, organization, and presentation. By motivating them to do better in all aspects of their lives, we give them the tools they need to achieve their dreams.

Be the perfect role model

Teachers play an important role in a student’s life. They come across different types of teachers in their academic life. Great teachers are always supportive and compassionate towards their students. They have a strong connection with the students and always encourage them to do better. Teachers are positive role models who help their students follow the same path in life.

By identifying the best in every child

A good teacher’s role is not just limited to academics, but beyond too. It is in identifying that not all students are equal and every child is special in their own ways. It is a teacher’s responsibility to the see the good in every child and promote it and motivate them to the best of their abilities. A brilliant teacher will respect a child’s pace and be patient while he/she discovers their passion and interests.

Every teacher has something to offer but teaching as a job always requires an educator to be on their feet. There’s always something to learn and something to unlearn. At Podar Smarter Schools, we make sure our teachers have all the training they require, so that they can be the best at their jobs and influence our young minds for the better.
