Live a century, learn a century – a wise proverb says, and in fact we are in the process of learning our whole life. Meeting new people, we gain experience and also share our experience with others. In a broad sense, each person becomes a teacher at one time or another, but the only difference is what responsibility he takes on himself. A teacher is not a job or a profession, but a true calling.
What should it be like? Primarily involved in the life of his students, a person interested. It is easy to find a common language with him and even entrust secrets, seek help, ask for advice. The teacher is one whose opinion is authoritative for the students, and the praise is especially pleasant. He is respected and obeyed. For him, work never ends; a teacher is a state of mind through which knowledge enters this world.
Unfortunately today, teachers are usually called teachers from educational institutions, whose role is reduced to reading material on educational books and checking an infinite number of notebooks. Of course, among them there are also worthy, and they all deserve respect. Education is in a difficult situation, one way or another, the system is controlled vertically from above, and it is worth paying tribute to, teachers have to do more than simply. What should be a teacher? Restrained, sedate, wise, reasonable and fair person. Without these qualities, it will not be possible to be a real example, but that is how it should be.
For this, conditions are necessary and, above all, the availability of sufficient time. The teacher should be able to talk with his students, listen and direct, because this is how education takes place. Quantity interferes with quality, when a teacher is torn into a whole crowd and forced to engage in routine, reporting work, such a system is aimed at stamping, rather than educating people.
And no less important is mentoring. It is wrong when twenty, already adult men, are taught by a woman. Young men should be taught by a man who will convey manners, experience, knowledge and norms of behavior. Unfortunately, we are now far from being able to meet with teachers as they should be.
