Teacher should be a role model ?

As we all know that a teaching is a noble profession and we have great respect in our hearts and minds for teachers and this is because of his/her dignified occupation. The good teacher must be a friend, philosopher and guide to his students. He must inspire nobility and greatness in the students under his charge. The teacher will succeed in this task if he understands psychology. In fact an intimate acquaintance with psychology is necessary for an ideal teacher. Then he knows the mental process of his pupils and acts accordingly.

Beside this general influence the teacher must himself be an example and a model. This is very important. Ancient teachers commanded the respect and affection of their pupils. They did so because their own life was good. Their conduct was above board, their mind was broad, their way of life remained simple and artistic. They were great scholars. But they were humble and modest. Naturally their pupils locked upon them with awe. The modern teacher has a tendency to be very loose in their habits. His devotion to learning is nominal. His other habits are often undistinguished. He has few ideals. His values are in no way different from those of a common man eager to get money by hook or crook.

He is not to blame entirely. He is the child of the modern society. He can’t escape from its bad influence easily. He becomes money-minded. But he should make an effort to resist all this bad influence in his own case. Only then can he hope to win the respect of his pupils.

We are not suggesting that the modern teachers should lead any austere life. He cannot go and live in the jungle. Ancient teachers could. He cannot keep us his reading without money. Book cost money. He cannot lead a beggarly life, for he has normal human desires and ambitions. He should be given good living. He should have a comfortable house. He should have money to spend on books. He should have money to entertain his friends and to travel far and wide. All these things are necessary for a modern teacher. But at the same time he should not be wasteful or showy or even ease-loving. If he has any of these vices, he cannot be an ideal teacher.
