What if you are a student in your own class?
As a teacher, have you ever wondered what would happen if you are a student in your own class? Well, that needs a lot of retrospect…and you have to be true in your assessment. Imagine yourself as a student in your class. Do you like your teacher? Do you like his/her way of teaching? Do you understand what is taught in the class? Is the teacher ready to explain the concepts again? Does he/she get irritated? Is the teacher unbiased? Do you like what is taught? Do you look forward to attend the class the next day?
If the answer is yes to all these questions above and you are happy to be a student in your class, you are a perfect teacher. But, if you feel intimidated or are not able to understand the concepts, it is time to think again.
Children come to school to learn and enhance their knowledge. A teacher or the guru imparts this knowledge and kids look up to their teachers to enhance it…day after day. After all, a good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning. Let us aim to instill the love of learning and go through this litmus test time and again!
