So…here I am to blog on Teachers….Teachers simply means….
T — Talented
E — Excellent
A — Adorable
C — Charming
H — Humble
E — Encouraging
R — Responsible
So their goes the full form of a teacher.
If its for the first word, we can say its a regular word anybody for anything. For anybody to become anything or at least something Talent must be there. But how is this talent being measured. Alas….there is no any invention done till date to count or measure the talent of anyone at any work. So it can only be the confidence in himself or herself which can be diluted here….
For the next word, we can say its the height that anybody would love to attain. Anyone would love to be called Excellent in his field or ways. But whether we can say everyone attains it. Certainly not. Some would be ok…ok…in their work whereas some one would be Good & some others Very Good and a few of them would be Excellent. But the role of a teacher demands that he or she should have the whole excellence in their profession. Again its a thought about yourself in your mind that ‘I’m excellent which marks the way here’.
Adorable…Here comes the third word in the kitty. Checking the synonyms of the word, i came across many other good words like sweet, cute, charming, gorgeous, delightful, endearing etc etc…And it can never be the looks of the teacher being referred here. Its of course the way a teacher has to be a student. So here i have arguments. Very often i have seen teachers teasing the students before their friends by making fun of them, if somebody get low marks or fail in a subject. Is it not true that this inflicts the students mind in a very bad way ? Whether students can adore such a person who pricks their mind with the sharp needle of words, in a way blood does not ooze out. I think it does. Whether anyone can be useless in all respects. Never. Its only that he does not get a platform to show what he is. Ok, I’m pausing it here and i have to go ahead with the rest of the words in the blanks.
Polite, that’s the synonym of Charming here. A charm in the personality or character is evidently the politeness of the teacher. So can we give the rights to them to shout at students, vouch at them in anyway. Undoubtedly, the mistake might be on the part of the student and he is wrong by all means. But isn’t a louder voice a kind of short cut. I don’t think anybody here would have a difference of opinion that it happens many a time with lot of students in their life.
All the teachers would advice their students to have the quality of Humbleness in their character. An antonym of the word would give you another word called as Arrogant. Don’t teachers behave arrogantly at their kids. Don’t they threaten their students by telling that ‘Your parents would be called upon’ or ‘you would be given transfer certificate’. All of you have to agree that it really happens in schools.
Advises would never workout for students. If advises really worked out, then all the students would be excellent for their teachers because there won’t be any dearth of advises for students from their teachers. But whether this advises are really Encouraging for the students. My answer would be ‘only to a small extent& indeed to a very small extent. Its motivation thats really required fr the students. A teacher shoudhave motivational quotes, sentences, stories, dialogues which would encourage the students for better efforts.
And coming to the last & final word ‘Responsibility’, i would like to say only a small comment that, only if all the above mentioned words are collective in a person and that too to the perfection they can be called a Responsible teacher.
No…. I don’t mean to say that no any teacher is a qualified one. What i mean to say is that, it should not be mere degrees and qualifications like BA, MA, BSc, MSc, BEd that counts a teacher. Indeed a testing has to be done for the personality of the individual of whether he has what is mentioned above. Having lot of degrees would never mean that he/she would become good teacher. Very often it happens that the role of a teacher gets limited into just learing a certain portion from the text & merely explaining it and drawing/writing it in the black board to students. No, it never ends there.
They are shouldering the biggest responsibility to build the future for any nation….
