Role of Teachers in Education

  • A teacher should constantly strive to be self-disciplined in all areas of one’s own life so that they can become an example to the students.
  • Teachers are expected to keep the students within the well-defined and understood limits as befitting to them for the proper development of children in the right direction.
  • Teachers should regularly bring to the awareness of students the need and value of keeping the rules stated by the school in the school diary.
  • Teachers should properly plan worthwhile activities in and outside the class to help prevent disciplinary problems.
  • A teacher should, for the wellbeing of the students, establish classroom conduct rules that students must obey.

Positive Learning Environment:
  • The teacher has the responsibility to create, foster, and maintain an orderly and safe classroom and school learning environment.
  • Teachers should foster and promote harmony, cordial relations, and friendly atmosphere in the school as such conditions are conducive to one’s own happiness, tension free teaching-learning atmosphere for the good of the students.
  • The teacher's eagerness and enthusiasm have a significant influence on student motivation, increasing active involvement, and hence, learning.
  • A good learning environment is one in which learners believe they are learning and progressing. Teachers may aid by periodically pushing students to reflect on what they've learned and, when feasible, relating it to real-world implementations.

Classroom Environment:
  • Every teacher should strive to have a neat and attractive classroom. A teacher is judged by the classroom in which he/she teaches, works, and interacts with children.
  • Teachers are responsible to educate students to maintain and keep their classrooms, school, and surroundings neat and tidy. It is a part of basic discipline.

Teaching Approach:
  • The teachers should have a holistic learning approach to help students develop a healthy, positive self-confidence, a sense of responsibility, and an understanding of how to work cooperatively and respectfully with others.
  • Teachers should not waste the precious time of the students, especially after assembly or while reporting to the classes, and are expected to do their work diligently and regularly.
  • Teachers should not engage themselves in their personal work during school hours and are required to give the entire time of teaching period to their students, to teach and to take questions from students and answer them.
  • Individual attention to students is essential and teachers are encouraged to solve problems such as personal, behavioural, and related to education. When a teacher feels that a student needs special help or is suffering emotional problem he/she must immediately inform the principal.
  • The teacher should be firm and strict but not unreasonable in demands. Teachers should avoid favouritism and abstain from prejudices against students. While teaching, raising one’s voice may often produce adverse results.
  • The teacher must always remember that each student has his/her self-respect which must be acknowledged.

Motivating Students:
  • Students should be thanked and praised for their accomplishments by the teachers. Recognizing that something frightening has been overcome brings a genuine sense of accomplishment.
  • Listen to what is stated before providing language feedback - and then make sure it is balanced. Bringing attention to appropriate language use (as well as faults) is beneficial to everyone. Active listening skills should be modelled and taught in class to help students react to one another more effectively.
  • Teachers should assist students see their class as a location where they can learn rather than a place where learning occurs to them.
  • Getting feedback from students about what happens in their classroom can help to instil a feeling of responsibility and trust. This might include everything from choosing background music to identifying subjects and receiving feedback on activities and texts.
