Role of teacher
Teacher acts as a ladder to switch into the real phase of life from a lovely and affectionate journey in the family. Tutors teach us about how to speak, act, interact and deal with people in social life. The norms of society and social life are also taught by them so that everyone can adjust into the sphere of their cultural life. Teachers are torchbearers to aware every learner about the obstacles in ways of life. Teachers are the best guide to imbibe the best manners and lessons of life in every student’s mindset. Teachers are like friends, parents, caretakers, and masters of those skills which we cannot learn in the boundaries of our house. Teachers are makers of good humans first, no doubt they make us able to grab significant opportunities in life. They are indeed polymaths of all tough questions of life because of their experience and they never hesitate to share it with their tutees. It is written in our spiritual books that nobody can write or sing in the praise of Guru or teacher because their work and guidance for humanity is priceless. However, some thinkers have tried it.
As in the words of Albert Einstein ,”It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge”.
There is no doubt that it is the art of teaching by teachers to make toughest lessons the simplest one.
