Types Of Teachers
Most people would agree that, teachers, have been playing an important role in our lives. But, do you think you know teachers well? So, to have a better understanding of teachers, from where I stand, it is necessary and helpful to group teachers into three types: strict teachers, moderate teachers, and indulgent teachers.
I guess most of us have been taught by strict teachers. Strict teachers refers to the teachers who are strict with their students. Firstly, strict teachers often have many class rules, such as keeping quiet in class, submitting homework on time, not being late for class and so on. And once we break one of the rules, we will be severely punished. For example, I have been required by a strict teacher to clean the classroom for a week due to being late for class when I was in high school. Secondly, strict teachers frequently give us a great deal of homework. Due to this, every time when we are about to do our homework, the homework of strict teachers’ must be on the top list, and sometimes we have to stay up late to finish it. Thirdly, strict teachers often give us an impression of seriousness because they seldom smile, as if someone owes them a lot of money. As a result, we may feel shocked and unaccustomed if we accidentally see strict teachers smile. It seems that they lack the nerves of smile. So, we often feel cautious even nervous when we are having classes of strict teachers’. On the contrary, moderate teachers are quite different from strict teachers.
When we are having classes of moderate teachers’, we often feel relaxed and happy. First, moderate teachers have less class rules than strict teachers because they think their students should be self-disciplined. And they seldom talk to their students in an injunctive tone. Secondly, moderate teachers make their students feel warm. Often, they take their students as friends and care about them. For example, when some of their students feel uncomfortable, they will ask what the problem is. Thirdly, moderate teachers like to smile and make jokes. Every time when having their classes or coming across them, they will always smile. And moderate teachers often try to make their classes interesting and active. For example, they sometimes use exaggerated facial expressions to make students burst into loud laughter. Most importantly, they know how to make their students learn in a proper way. However, indulgent teachers are not like that.
We feel familiar when talking about indulgent teachers. One thing for sure is that indulgent teachers do not have class rules. Once in a while, we have been taught by this kind of teachers. They seem to be very nice to their students because they are too kind to their students to do good for them. First, the most obvious feature of indulgent teachers’ is that they never force their students to do anything. For example, they don’t care whether you are absent or not. Second, they seem to be indifferent to their classes. To be exact, it seems that their job in a class is to perform a talk show alone standing on the platform. But the obvious advantage is that they are popular with the students who do not really like school. Third, to tell the truth, they are less responsible for their students because they care little about their school work and just let their students take their own courses. For example, indulgent teachers won’t stop to stare at someone who is doing something irrelevant to the class. I guess this is why indulgent teachers win less popularity than moderate teachers.
Every school will likely have a combination of strict, moderate and indulgent teachers. While students usually do not have the power to choose their teacher, understanding these types will help students get the most out of their education regardless of the teacher they happen to have.
