I am interested in teaching because I want to educate children so they can become more educated in the future. I want to give them knowledge so that they can open new doors and gain more opportunities in which they can be better.
I think that teachers should be friends with their students but to a certain extent. In my experience of teaching the students do not come into your classroom only to learn, they come with their problems and issues and the look toward the teacher for help. I have dealt with students who were brilliant/ smart but did not have food to eat or was being abused at home which affected their work. Students should know that they can come and speak with the teacher about the things that are affecting their work and they would only do that if they can see the teacher as a trusted friend and someone who can help. By being a friend to the students a teacher can get a better insight about the students abilities and would learn how to go about creating a better learning environment and work so that they can get the best out of the student.
A teacher should be understanding, hardworking, determined to help their students, trusting and capable. Also a teacher should be able to differentiate her/ his work so that she is able to reach as much students as possible such as visuals for the visual learners and objects for the students who are kinesthetic learners.
