What is an Ideal Teacher?

S Besares

by SALVADOR M. BESARES

The ideal teacher is the one we respect from our hearts. He or she serves as a guide to the learners without putting so much pressure on them on doing tasks. He or she motivates and boosts students’ morale and refrain from criticizing them.

Such a teacher shows students the right path under all circumstances and never shies away from duty. Moreover, he or she is always there by the student’s side in times of need. Some students may not always have parents beside them to offer some pieces of advice, but they still need an adult’s opinion on this matter, and teachers can become the parents’ backup who can give tips and some words of encouragement.

An ideal teacher never lets the limitations of his or her student restrict their vision. He or she consistently motivates them to reach ahead and broaden their horizon. A teacher should encourage and inspire the students to think beyond their confines and help them realize their talents as well as the need to pursue them with diligence.

In conclusion, all teachers should take the time to get to know who their students are. They might even be surprised at the outcome. Knowing their students well helps them become closer to each other; that way, it will be easier for the teacher to solve any problems that occur in the classroom. Both parties, the teacher and the students who have developed mutual understanding can eventually sustain the harmonious relationship they have with one another. The teacher can even become their students’ idol or even superhero for being a good mentor and motivator to his or her students.
