The Role of Teachers in Society
Published By megamatt09 on 2012-05-11 4664 Views

Teachers play an extraordinary part in the lives of children for the formative years of their development. The importance of teachers is something that cannot be understated. Their influence can and will stretch on long after the final bell rings, beyond the walls of the actual school. The role of the teacher is complex, far beyond what people would assume as just someone who teaches what is mandated by law from the youth of America.

The Role of Teachers in Society

Life is its own education, with formal schooling playing only a small fraction. However, that does not undermine the role of the teacher. Those who sit in the class room have a good bit of influence of shaping the minds of the future.

There are many out there who instruct and lecture information in the classroom but very few people who actually teacher. Actually get through and shape the youth of today to be the pillars of society, to be all that they can be.

In many ways, there will be times where children will see their teachers a bit more than they might see their parents during most days. This is the case in the lower grades, where children are in school, seven, eight, and nine hours a day, with a single teacher at the lower grade levels.

Needless to say, teachers will find themselves as a temporary third parent, being firm but fair. Patient but also unable to be able to back down. They need to run their class room through respect, but not through fear.

Teachers need to be someone that children respect enough to listen to and to not fear that they can go with, for their problems, should the situation come up.

Also, teachers are mediators, able to hash out and make those who are having an argument have some kind of common ground. Anyone can really just punish the two parties and be done with it, but there will be no lessons that will be learned from that. If a teacher is able to figure out what has happened and help develop understanding, then the youth will be far better off.

The best teachers are far more than just reciting dry facts and assigning huge piles of homework. They are those who help shape the children to be the best that they can be and it takes a special person to do that.
