Role of Teachers in Prep Class Activities:
It is also important for a teacher to help the children in such activities. Teachers’ guidance is necessary for a child’s safety. That is why, the teachers must take their duty seriously, especially with children.
A child, at an early age, is easily influenced. They need someone to guide them. For such purposes, teachers put a great impact on children. That is why a teacher needs to realize their duty and work for the development of the children’s personality.
A teacher should teach and guide the children according to their mindset. If we always tell them about what they cannot do, it eventually becomes a reality for them. This results in hesitation in decision-making in the future life.
Also, a strict attitude can make a child afraid of the teacher. And this can greatly affect a child’s personality. Such a personality may lower a child’s confidence.
A teacher should be friendly and compassionate towards the children. He should be a role model for the children. His aim should be to inspire the child and to become aware of themselves. And a teacher can do so through prep class activities.
Mukabbir Schools take pride in developing ways for teachers to communicate with parents.
