Since the day I have become a teacher, one thing hit in my mind again and again like a Squash ball on the wall. It is something related to the comparison between friends and teachers. Sometimes I wonder that to become a teacher is worth it??….
The definition of a teacher is “the person who gives knowledge to the young ones and teach them about a specific thing.”
Just read this definition again and at a deeper level. Can you feel something related to Narcissism even to a little extent?…. I mean the definition says, “Who gives knowledge”. The meaning is bigger and deeper than these three words if you sense.
I don’t know but something’s there what I don’t like and I’m not comfortable in becoming a teacher. I feel that I’m not that much wiser person who can teach others and don’t ask the younger ones to teach me anything. Life always keeps teaching us. So how could we only TEACH the others??…. I think aside from this, we should learn from the young ones by keeping down the ego of being a teacher. (If you’re a teacher) Of course, we should teach them but in a way that somehow is different from today’s trend of a teacher. And that way is called………”Friendly”.
This single word speaks it all. Friendly means like a Friend. Teach your students like a friend. Just become friends with them. Share all the things with them like you do with your real friends. No other relations like you’re a teacher and they’re your students. Just build a friendship in the class. 😀😀 And they’ll connect with you by heart and learn a lot more from you.❤
Friendship is the only relationship in which people can do both things – teach and learn. Just love the people around you. This is what life is about.
“A person can never teach anything as a TEACHER. A person can never learn anything as a STUDENT.” – My Philosophical Opinion.
So, should I say that becoming a Friend is more beneficial than becoming a person who only teaches??…..
