Bridging The Gaps

This might sound familiar, ‘Maa, I dont like that teacher’, or ‘I hardly understand what he teaches’ ,or ‘The teacher never understands what we are trying to say’. Yes? Happens with a lot of us. Reason being, a generation gap. Often when students join school, the experienced teachers of the school are either old or are nearly as old enough that it creates an entire generation gap.

Some teachers gel well with the students, making them look all cool and easy to go teacher. Students generally open up with such teachers, share their subject related problems, some even personal. There are other kind of teachers who seem totally unaffected by the student’s presence. Their aim is to complete the syllabus. Yes, we’ve all been there. We’ve been through every kind of teacher and survived.

For students who find it difficult to develop a rapport with their teachers, here are a few tips

Communication:

Communicate, not with the friend sitting right behind but with the teacher. Share your doubts and concerns regarding the subject. Its not wrong to ask for doubts more than once. The teacher might look scary, but you can always take the first step.

Mix with the students:

This is for the teachers, try and mingle with the students. Learn the latest trends. Get them to gel along with the students. Play it cool.

Listening:

The other side of communication is listening. While students communicate with the teacher, the teacher should be all ears and vice versa for students. Proper listening will always solve unresolved issues. Listening leads to implementation.

Follow the above tips and you can see how the environment at school change. Change is always good, for the school, for the student and also for a bright fututre.
