As a parent, you usually know when your child likes or dislikes their teacher. The teacher that a child has makes a huge impact on the child, and it also plays a large role in the child’s attitude toward you and toward school.My nine-year old daughter is in fourth grade. Last year, she had a teacher that she really did not like. The teacher has been at the school for many years, and she is very quiet and shy. Some people might say that she does not really have a personality. My daughter, on the other hand, is bubbly and vibrant. Her personality is one of her greatest traits, but it just did not mesh well with her teacher last year. This year, she absolutely loves her teacher. Her teacher is funny, laughs a lot and is just a wonderful woman to be around.
I have noticed that this has really made a big difference in my daughter’s attitude. Now that she likes her teacher, she seems to like school once again. She comes home in a great mood every day, and never says anything bad or negative about school. She is even more willing to do her homework and to correct any papers that need to be fixed.
It is just very surprising to me the difference that a teacher can make. I am not a teacher, but I would think that teachers would realize this. Teachers play a large role in children's lives, and they can make a student’s year great or really bad.
