The Teacher is like an oil lamp if its flame is steady and bright a hundred lamps can be lit by it, without in any way diminishing its brightness. For ensuring the brightness of the lamp, it is necessary that the wick be in good order and the oil supply be sufficient."
Certainly the role of the teacher cannot be written in mere words.
So far from my observation as a learner, I have begun to understand that there are many roles and responsibilities that come with being a primary teacher.
The main responsibility of a teacher is the students in the classroom;
the teacher must assure that they follow the criteria for every child matters and child protection.
The teacher should monitor and track every child’s individual progress and also keep parents involved and informed of their child’s development.
It is important to implicate the national curriculum into day to day teaching, most importantly delivery of literacy and mathematics are very significant in the child’s growth.
I believe assessment and testing is a good way to track the child’s progress and distinguish what level the child is at and if they need and additional help and tuition. In addition to this and working with the students in class, the teacher could also recogniseany learning difficulties the child may or may not have.
The teacher play a key role in the social and intellectual development of students between the ages of six and twelve. the main role is to plan and deliver learning activities that meet the students needs.
