Teachers are gifts from God

The effective teachers must have the mastery of the subject matter. That is true! According to Dr. Adolfo, in order for them to gain the mastery of the subject matter, they have to know first the fundamental rules or principles of absorbing the contents or subject matters before imparting all-out knowledge to their students.

He also said that in the field of education, most of us believe that teaching is a multifaceted human activity for it entails a wide range of teaching approaches, interactions, planning, organizational arrangement and material resources that transpire within the four walls of the classroom and in the teaching-learning process.

Teachers should encourage their students to ask questions, to give their viewpoints, reactions or comments. The teacher should help and motivate students learn how to ask interesting questions. The teacher’s own questioning strategy will serve as a model or a pattern to all the learners. It is indispensable that the teacher allows certain flexibility in the manner that the learners are doing their assigned tasks.

The teacher should involve the students in planning their own ways of gathering data to test their hypothesis. Creativity will in effect enhance their own methodologies of managing their own learning activity.

The classroom environment fosters numerous interactions among children on a daily basis, creating the largest social component of a child's life.

Shaping a child's social development, therefore, falls on the teacher who takes on the role of mediator and coach. As far as the roles of teacher are concerned, Gregorio expounded on the several roles that…since learning is an active process on the part of the learner, it is not possible for the teacher to learn for the student. In a very real sense, the teacher cannot make the student learn, but the former can have a tremendous influence on learning.
