What Makes a Teacher Genuine?

Teachers are those people who affect our life every day, even subconsciously. They are a source of encouragement and support for the students. That is why their task is to be a good example. A great teacher is some kind of a mix of a parent and a friend. Surely, teachers should show discipline, but at the same time there has to be fun, interest, and creativity. However, not everybody is able to be a teacher. When you are creative and funny, but without any discipline measures, students are distracted. Sure, there should be some formula to help any student to learn and to give him a desire to listen and study.

The main thing is to have control over the class. It does not mean being rough and having no fun. A teacher needs to put a line to be clear for any student not to cross. It also can help to gain respect from any student. When this respect is got, it creates really refreshed and new atmosphere.

Teacher should show confidence, be patient and have faith in her- himself. Unless a teacher has these qualities, he will not be able to inspire them in students. One more important thing is understanding between teacher and student. Ordinary five-year child cannot understand molecular physics. At the same time, talking about teddy bears could be boring for a grown-up. Teacher is a person to find a golden mean to help any student to improve. Willingness to learn can make any person genuine. This quality is vitally important for any teacher. Teaching is a two way process, some kind of “circulation of knowledge”. A good teacher recognizes the opportunity to learn from the students as much as they learn from this teacher.

How could it happen for teacher to be a genuine? It is any teacher’s duty. A teacher cannot have double standards. …
