The relationship between a teacher and a student should be built on fostering a positive and inclusive learning environment, emphasizing commonality and avoiding discrimination or “ism,” such as racism, sexism, or any other biased behavior.

A teacher should strive to create an atmosphere where students feel valued, respected, and understood, irrespective of their backgrounds, identities, or differences. By recognizing and celebrating commonalities among students, educators can promote a sense of unity and shared purpose in the learning community.
