The changing role of the teacher…

October 15, 2009

I read a few of the teacher blogs about the role of the teacher but the one that I found most relevant was Mrs. Deuel’s Educational Portfolio.  Her blog discusses the role of education, the student and the teacher — all being intertwined with one another for success.  She states that the role of education is to provide students with the opportunity to learn in a safe environment and that education should expand the mind.  The role of the teacher is to be a role model, be knowledgeable and be open to new learning opportunities.  She further expanded the role of the teacher in to the community serving as a mentor.  Thus the role of the teacher is always changing because the community changes and the students change…the teacher has to be open to adapt to new and ever-changing ideas.
