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.
It’s crucial to avoid any form of manipulation that could harm the learning environment. Instead, teachers should focus on cultivating a supportive and open atmosphere that encourages collaboration, empathy, and the appreciation of diversity. This approach helps students feel safe to express themselves, learn from one another, and contribute to a rich, dynamic educational experience.
