Significance of student-teacher relationship in moulding a child

A school is the place where a child receives education, gets accustomed to etiquettes and discipline, understands the power of collaboration, and develops his/her character. Thus, a school plays a crucial role in moulding the child into a well-balanced and responsible citizen. In a school, a teacher acts as a guiding light for all the students as they learn everything from the teachers. However, merely teaching the students is not enough, there needs to be a strong bond between the teacher and the students to disseminate knowledge in the best possible way and to nurture the students holistically.
MIT Vishwshanti Gurukul understands the significance of the student-teacher relationship and that is why our heritage’s Guru-Shishya Parampara is prevalent in its premises. Here, Gurus are the mentors for all the students and they inculcate moral values, Indian ethos, discipline, and essential life skills in each student along with imparting education.
Student-teacher relationship plays a key role in the healthy development of a student in the classroom. Healthy student-teacher relationship ensures a sense of comfort and understanding. The students feel free to reach out to the teachers for help and teacher loves to clarify the doubts of the students. In this way, it nurtures a liberal learning environment. Such an environment not only inspires the student to perform actively in academics but it boosts their morale to unleash their talent and follow their passion. It eradicates the hesitation among the students that prevent them from putting their questions in front of the teachers. Instead, the skill of inquiry and curiosity is evoked in every student at MIT Vishwashanti Gurukul so that they can widen their horizon of learning.

Advantages of Having A Healthy Student-Teacher Relationship

A positive student-teacher relationship can have a lot of advantages. Some of them are listed below:

Elimination of hesitation

Hesitation prevents every student to speak up, ask questions from the teachers so as to clarify his/her doubts. However, in order to gain knowledge effectively from our teachers, the students need to open out with them and express themselves fully. So, the teachers should create a conducive environment for the students where they can learn and grow freely. A healthy teacher-student relationship will not only eliminate hesitation but also encourage the student to put in a lot more efforts in his/her work.

Elimination of inferiority complex

A school has all kinds of students with different learning ability, intelligence and understanding. Sometimes a student may feel left out in the classroom if he/she is not able to understand or contribute in the class. He/she might also suffer from an inferiority complex which can lead to strange behavior in the classroom thereby leading to poor academic performance. Confrontation by the teacher can help the student in overcoming this issue. The teachers comforting words can not only boost his confidence but also inspire them to perform well in every sphere of life.

Growth and development outside the classroom

A healthy student-teacher relationship helps in effective growth and development of the child, not only inside the classroom but outside of it as well. Emotional and spiritual growth are two of the many areas besides academics where a teacher can help his students with their problems.
The mentors at MIT Vishwashanti Gurukul conduct regular discussions with their students and help them to figure out their individual requirements in order to achieve greater levels of success. Here, students are motivated to even share their personal experiences and teachers help them to solve them. Counseling is also offered to the students by the mentors.
These were the advantages of fostering a student-teacher relationship in school. At MIT Vishwashanti Gurukul, the students can leverage these perks and develop holistically!
