Relationship Shared amongst Teachers and Students
Nowadays, there is much controversy plaguing our society as to how the perfect relationship between teachers and their students should be. One pupil might be favored more than another in the classroom by the teacher, making this extra attention unfair to the other students. Almost always, there is a question pending as to what should the situation be inside a classroom. Nobody has yet come up with a solution to solve the problems facing our societys school system and the relationship the students hold with their teachers. An equal balance of fairness, dedication, and hard work should come from both teachers and students. Once we achieve this goal, our classrooms will have teachers giving a hundred percent and their will and effort to teach while the students give their hundred percent of effort to learn and participate at the same time.
The teachers responsibilities are much greater than that of the students. In the Mission Statements, I found an interesting quote from the Evergreen State College which says, The main purpose of a college is to teach, and good teaching involves close interaction between faculty and students (54). I strongly agree with what this college mission is saying because this statement personifies teachers responsibilities since the better teachers teach, the closer those teachers will reach out to their students filling the students anxious brains with more knowledge. Fulfilling this task will both make a successful student and well as a successful teacher. To ensure the best education for a student, teachers must put forth all efforts and knowledge to enlighten their students. Often times, you can find students just not willing to pay attention to their teachers simply because they might be unwilling, inconsiderate, or uninterested. Social historian Elizabeth Ewen once argued, It is what we are excited about that educates us (Rose 106).
Most students especially those younger need to be attracted to a particular subject or topic, one that just grabs their attention, in order to pay attention and to learn from that subject. One such example is when I entered the 8th grade with a hate for mathematics, but after being taught by a very well educated professor, I managed to start liking algebra and becoming more and more intrigued as the course went on.
When I used to be in elementary school, I would only find interest in those topics I thought were exciting and interesting such as science and drawing. Whenever a teacher would tell us to draw or sketch a picture, a smile immediately grew on my face and I lightened up with joy since I loved to draw. My love of art made me one of the most talented kids at school with that gift. I believe that a dedicated person must push his or her limitations to the maximum of their potentials to be educated and to succeed even though he or she may not like what theyre being taught, but that person must still push themselves to...
