If you took time to ask some teens about their worst nightmare, most would say, ‘sitting in a class with a teacher in it.’ However, at the end of the day, what is the cost of having this distance between the teacher and the student? The answer is poor results.
Every student should know that studying in class is not forever. Even though learning never ends, being in a class is inevitable. Besides, how serious can you be when you do not take time to listen to your teacher?
Teachers play a major role when it comes to shaping the lives of students. For this very reason, teachers should be closer to you than your parents are, when it comes to your academics.
One student, Arnold Bukangwa says, “Despite my friends calling me a snake because I used to talk to teachers a lot, I didn’t stop at any one time. This is because I understood that relating with my teachers would make my grades better and they kept improving as my teachers knew my weakness and taught me how to deal with them.”
Teachers usually try to bring out and nurture the best in their students. They are proud of students who excel in what they are taught. It is a well-known fact that a good teacher is one that knows his students by strength and weakness.
Much as students benefit from their teachers, the element that keeps a brilliant teacher-student relationship going is mutual communication. This symbiotic relationship is what schools need in order to excel.
