The Teacher’s Attitude and the Learning Process

speakers-414557_640It is known that in order to be a teacher, you are required a lot of mental training in this field. Whoever attempts to become part of the education system should take pedagogical courses, and they should earn a license or a master’s degree. Moreover, due to the complexity of this job, they should capitalize on their knowledge by passing some difficult exams (class inspections, tenure examination, teacher’s certification, etc.)

School represents the starting point in shaping personal and professional life; thus, establishing certain limitations and constraints leads to the  integration of the child in society. These parameters in which the pupil’s behaviour should be included, ought to be accompanied by his rights, thus avoiding school abuses.

Respect should not be imposed, but won!
