Teachers VS Students

Students VS Teachers! Which is more Valuable?

Have you Ever had a Teacher that told you “I’m Not Here to Be your Friend, I’m Here to Teach” ?

Here Are some Students Opinion.

Student 1

I’ve been told this by this one teacher today in class.
I think that it’s just wrong for a teacher to say that because a teacher is suppose to help me succeed but a teacher with this attitude makes me not wanna be around them or learn! So i failed the class. My teacher negative attitude prevented me to want to learn and gain knowledge. with the mind set about this teacher made me feel there was never be that student teacher relationship that was needed for me to succeed .

Student 2

No, I haven’t experience this problem before. I always had a teacher that cared, and that was there for me when i needed stuff to be done. When I had problems, i would go for advice or go talk to them and they would help me.

Student 3

No, I haven’t really experience this problem either, because my teachers would help me if needed. Some teachers are different in there own ways. Some teachers you will feel comfortable around but then some not. I’m comfortable around the teachers that really want me to succeed and learn to get good grades, but then some other teachers just don’t really care about the student.

So these are the students that have their opinion about how their teachers are If you have had some concern or If you would like to leave some of your concerns then please do So.

Hmm i have only had one teacher like that and he said it truthfully but then again all the students were old and knew that he meant it in a way that meant that we were to succeed on our own accounts and to prepare us on the future ahead. While being the most negative to student he did show qualities of a person with great intellect and furthermore showed that he did care for students. All in all I think he knew it most what students were going through and could readily provide assistance in areas needed. He soon grew to be a teacher that i respected and as one I will always remember.

The Science Connection here is Social Science, where we can get to know others opinion about what they like about their teachers and what kind of communication or relationship they have with there teacher.

That is an excellent point! I feel children deserve to be listened to and respected, including pleases and thank you's! I often notice a lack of that. Yes, the adult or teacher is the leader and his rules should be followed, but explaining why and giving kids a chance to say their mind is right.
