Essay on An Ideal Teacher in English

Introduction- An Ideal teacher should have many qualities. A student remembers such a teacher for long. The effect of his personality on students lasts long. An ideal teacher is one who is loved and respected by every student. He must try to win the heart of all students. He should try to establish a kind of relationship between himself and his students.

He should be scholar- Ideal teacher should be a scholar. He must have the knowledge of the subject he teaches in the class. He should teach the subjects in an interesting way. He should be able to make the students really interested in their subject. He should express well, he should have a good voice and he must have love for teaching. The students should feel that their minds are growing under his teaching. An ideal teacher deals with the subject well. He makes his subject interesting, too.

He inculcates learning- An ideal teacher is one who makes his students think. He not only passes information to them but also develops love for learning. He activates the minds of his students. He teaches them how to think and grow logical power. He brings into play the hidden mental power of students. He must be a man of ideas. He should explain things in a scholarly and interesting way.

Ideal is all respects- An ideal teacher is ideal in all respects. He does not use words of learned length. He does not use difficult sentences. His language must be clear, easy and simple so that students may understand it. His teaching should be a tonic to the mind. An ideal teacher should be a self respecting man. Thus his students also acquire self-respect and dignity from him.

He should be cultured- An ideal teacher must be a man of culture. He should have a sense of duty and responsibility. He should be honest to himself, to his students and to his profession. Man making is the central function of an ideal teacher. He is an engineer of the soul. In other words, an ideal teacher is a student's friend, philosopher and guide.

Should be sympathetic and polite- Students do not like an unsympathetic and harsh teacher. They can judge the real worth of a teacher within no time. They can make sacrifice for their teacher, if he has created that much confidence in them. They worship a teacher who always remain in partial and treats all his students alike. The worth of a teacher is not measured by them by the number of suits he owns, and by the amount of help which he renders to them. If he is fearless, earnest and sincere in the discharge of his duties and is sympathetic towards his students, then he is bound to be the object of their devotion and admiration. A teacher who always finds fault with the work of his students in an object of fear for them; in their childish games and youthful vigor students do not like checks. If anyone is strict and does not allow them freedom, he becomes object of their criticism. But such a teacher builds up in everlasting impression on the minds of his pupils. Often in their later life they silently worship him as their ideal. So the question of the selection of an ideal teacher does not rise. He is enshrined in the hearts of his students.

Hard task masters are always loved- I had the god fortune of reading in good school and colleges. All the teachers were admired by some and criticized by others. Those who were hardworking and hard task masters were loved and respected by sincere students. Such students showered their praises on those who were lenient and did not care if the students worked or not. From among the various teachers who taught, I would like to mention the two who inspire me even today.

My ideal- I always find the image of Dr. R. K. Sharma before my mind’s eye whenever the word teacher is spoken, his long, erect, healthy body, always smiling face with an angelic expression on it, gives me immense pleasure even today whenever that figure comes to my mind. I don't remember even a single occasion when he did not help me at my request. The vastness of knowledge deeply impressed me. But he was never proud of it. Even after his retirement and in spite of his weak health, he was busy in the pursuit of knowledge. A rare combination of learning and gentleness indeed I shall never be able to forget him. He is always with me and will continue to guide me throughout my life.
