The current paper will examine various existing stereotypes imposed on teachers and kids at school. We will start from investigating the different types of teachers in the school environment. It is a fact that teachers play a role of a guiding power for students. They take responsibility for shaping student’s personality and their orientation in life. Teachers have a profound impact on our lives and influence the course of student’s future. The impact of teacher’s on student’s life cannot be underestimated. It is an undeniable fact that till a certain period in life, the lives of students revolve around their teachers. Instructors at school are loyal companions of students until they reach the age when they can move ahead in their lives without the assistance of teachers. There are different types of teachers. Some of them are strict, while others are friendly and amiable. Students tend to dislike the teachers that do not impress them in a positive way. Students have their own preferences regarding teachers, which influence their attitude towards school and people working in it. Let us discuss a few classic types of teachers existing in the school environment.
This type of teachers tends to act as a friend for their students as suggested by the very notion. At some point in our lives, we all tend to strive for understanding teachers. A friendly teacher serves a role of a guiding power, a friend and a philosopher who knows much about life and can share their knowledge with students.
This type of teacher serves as a God and a ruling power to students. Such teachers want to see smiles on their students’ faces and tend to make the learning process an enjoyable and pleasant experience. Such teachers are not as clumsy as many people suggest. They are witty and humorous always being in a good mood.
Such teacher is the one whom we all respect deeply in the heart. A perfect teacher is also a guide to students, but he/she does not push or pressure them a lot. This motivates students and enhances their morale. Such teachers try to encourage their students and usually do not criticize students too much.
This type of teacher is usually easy going and friendly. He/she does not fuss much about things, like doing homework or completing tasks in the classroom. Lenient teachers are usually aware that if you are strict with children, this will make them withdrawn from the activities in the classroom and from the things teacher tells them. Nevertheless, it does not mean that students are allowed to do anything they wish in class. Lenient teachers also know how and when to be strict.
This type of teachers is usually quite tough on their students. They always make sure that students adhere to the deadlines and complete tasks in a timely manner. Such teachers do not like it when students make mistakes and become furious over the carelessness on behalf of students. Children usually take caution with such teachers. They are perceived as disciplinarians who always keep children aware of their responsibilities.
It is a fact that one of the most problematic aspects of being a teacher is to satisfy the needs of different types of students gathered in a single classroom. It is likely that a classroom full of twenty students with different personalities will require different strategies from their teacher. Students have different strengths and weaknesses and should be addressed individually. Coping with this challenge is what makes a teacher an effective one. It is difficult to have an individual approach to all students. Therefore, it is essential that teachers should learn about different types of students first in order to ensure efficient work in the classroom. Teaching is both a fascinating and challenging profession. If all children were alike, it would probably be a boring job. Let us discuss a few distinctive features peculiar to different types of students.
To conclude, the school environment bristles with various types of kids and teachers as analyzed in the paper above. It can be therefore assumed that while teachers influence the future of their students, kids themselves can influence the future of their peers by setting an example for them to follow and choose specific behavioral patterns.
