We encounter many different types of teachers in our time as students: those that are there because it’s their job, the ones that don’t care because they are not paid enough to care, and those that enjoy and care about their students. We, as students, depend on the teacher to help and guide us through our journey through school. Even though we all have the potential to succeed in school, some of us need a little encouragement from the instructor. When the teacher doesn’t care whether the students succeed or fail it breeds an attitude of discouragement in those students. The attitude a teacher has toward his or her students can affect the way those students feel about their work and that class in return.
I have had the experience of being in a class where the teacher was indifferent to the students. When I was in 11th grade geometry my teacher was in Egypt and our class was assigned a substitute. The substitute would come into class, take attendance, and pass out worksheets. For the remainder of the period he would sit at his desk and expect the class to complete the worksheets. For the first week we would complete our worksheets and hand them in at the end of the period, but after the first week we realized that it didn’t matter to him whether or not we turned the work in. After the second week our class of thirty-two students became fifteen and then it dwindled to eight. At that point I went to my guidance counselor and I was transferred to another geometry class where the teacher had a better attitude and greater interaction with the class. The learning environment was much more positive and the teacher worked with us and encouraged us when we needed it.

Many people become teachers because there is such a shortage in this field. They become teachers for the paid holidays, summers off and full benefits not because they have a passion for teaching. This affects the way they feel towards their job and in turn how they interact with their students. In the 12th grade I was assigned to a trigonometry class, my teacher was Mr. Cerra. He was what they called an emergency certified teacher, he walked in the first day of school and by the look on his face we all saw that he didn’t want to be there. Mr. Cerra didn’t have any patience with our class, he stood in front of the class and started working on a math problem that no one knew how to solve. He continued to work on it explaining briefly how to solve it, and then he moved on to the next one. Everyone was confused and had questions; one of my classmates raised his hand and asked Mr. Cerra to go over the math problem again. Mr. Cerra scoffed and yelled at the class for not listening and for not following along. After a few days, the students stopped caring and they would come to class and talk and not do the work. I would sit and read because I didn’t understand what Mr. Cerra was doing and he wasn’t willing to take the time and teach the class the proper way. One day Mr. Cerra kicked me out of the class because I was reading a book and not working on the math problems he assigned, and no one knew how to do. That day I went to my guidance counselor and she put me into an introduction to sculpture class.
There are teachers that love and have a passion for teaching, but after a few years many get burned out. When a teacher is burned out they lose their passion and love for teaching. They get bored of the daily routine of getting up in the morning, going to school and having to deal with a classroom full of students all day. Many times the teacher falls into one method of teaching, and that method may become ineffective and the students become bored with the routine. When I was in the 5th grade my Social Studies teacher was Mrs. Bard, she had been a teacher for six years. Social Studies was the class that we all looked forward to, we played games and would read the Reading Eagle for current events. About halfway through the school year it started to change, instead of reading about current events we would read to ourselves straight from the textbook. After we would read a section we would answer five questions that were written on the blackboard. This became the daily routine and it was very boring, I dreaded going to Social Studies. It was very obvious that she didn’t enjoy teaching as much as she had in the beginning of the school year and we didn’t enjoy her class anymore either; after that year Mrs. Bard stopped teaching.
Teaching practice is the practical aspect of teacher training and it is an assortment of factual and dramatic characteristics. During the teaching practice student teachers find an opportunity to use the acquired knowledge, especially in the areas of psychology, teaching methods, teaching principles and teaching techniques. During teaching practice student teachers are like apprentices to acquire ...
From the first day of Pre- Kindergarten until the day a student graduates college teachers play a very important role in their life. Without a teacher there to teach and guide us in the right we would be lost. It is important for a teacher to be patient with their students. It is also important for a teacher to have a positive attitude toward their students. The way a teacher views their students is the way their students are going to view themselves, their class work and school in general. Teachers need to be aware and be careful of their attitudes because negativity breeds negativity.
