Swami Vivekananda once said, ‘A true teacher is the one who comes down to the level of the student to make him understand the things’. There have been teachers that live forever in the minds of their students while there are some that are seldom remembered. It is not that the students avoid teachers but love them for their qualities and principles. What makes a teacher different from the other if both do the same job?
Students are different kinds. Some do not require the motivation from their teacher but they have many to motivate them or they are already sogood that they keep on getting good records. There are some students that require motivation and admiration from their teachers. If this is done in public i.e. in the assembly area or in the classroom, the students feel like doing the best.
Even the most aggressive teachers have been loved by the students for this simple reason that they never hesitated to praise their students in public. Then there were teachers that were calmand supportive. They took a student more than just a student. They tried to understand the problem of the student and tried to resolve to the best extent possible.
Then there were teachers that delivered lectures not just to complete the syllabus but conducted different activities to make their lectures interesting. They taught the students how to answer the question paper in order to get better marks and how to study well. There were stories and motivation in what they delivered to the students.
The finest of teachers not only praised the students but also punished the students in public. Prior to this they tried to warn the student in private. The memorable moments were those when they forgave for the biggest of mistakes. The best thing was they did justice to all. They didn’t just looked after the best of students but also paid attention to those who were not performing better.
