Role of Teachers
Teachers play a vital role in shaping the life of children. Since school is the second home of children, it becomes very essential for teachers to take utmost care of each and every aspect of children. Right from academics to sports, from extracurricular activities to basic manners in a child, a teacher indulges in all. Being a teacher brings in a great amount of responsibilities on their shoulders.
It becomes essential for them to cover up every aspect in absence of their parents. Teachers and parents communicate with each other during PTMs or on special occasions. There are several parents who hesitate in communicating with their child’s teachers. Thus, it becomes important for parents as well to meet up teachers on regular basis.
