Chapter 4 Relationship With Pupils
General Premise: A competent educator is much more than a purveyor of subject matter. It is assumed that each teacher will display courtesy and good manners when considering pupils’ feelings. He/she should minimize negative incidents or embarrassing situations. No estimate of worth can be placed upon the willingness of a friendly and concerned teacher who gives extra time to counsel a youngster about educational and related problems.
