Role of the TeacherTeachers are charged with many roles and a lot of expectations for every class they teach. What are the most pertinent roles? What are the most enjoyable? How do you find a balance? In a big picture view of teaching, one can easily say teachers are managers. They manage the class decorum, lesson plans, timing of activities, engagement of students, study, relevance of topic - everything that goes on in the classroom and even things that don't! This can be hard, especially for new teachers because all the attention is placed on you, which can detract from students own learning. You may resent the role of being a classroom manager but it is the role that allows teachers to teach. Being a manager is necessary to survive as a teacher. It is important to start off somewhat business-like beginning day one. This helps establish requirements, boundaries and what the typical routine of coming to class is expected to look like. Establishing a routine early on is extremely helpful because once this is in place, the teacher can ease up a little and concentrate on more enjoyable roles. A teacher needs to be comfortable in the roles of assessor, prompter and participant as well. The need for evaluation of what is being retained and what requires more attention is indispensable.
