I think we teachers should have a nice and endearing attitude to our students. A lovable one, because ours is love of benevolence plus affection.
We love them plus their families, which are ours in some way. Plus our colleagues too. Parents, teachers, students should be the correct order for our assistance and attention. But it isn’t a silly love, because as I said it is love of benevolence: so we wish the best to them, and seek it and keep on seeking it.
As I said, the affection and attention order has to be parents, then teachers, then students. It’s so if we wish our school would go on an effective way.
That love, that benevolence love at the same time is delicate toward people of the other gender. We should prevent from nasty gossip about our relationships at school.
By the way in Spanish we have an expression for being attentive and take on our students’ needs, which is very adequate and it is “hacerse cargo”. We must assist our surrounding people’s needs. They deserve that attention. And as a result we will be loved too! One of you told me about this: if you love, you’ll be loved. / Photo from: Live Your Legend
