Recently two things not significant enough to make the headlines grabbed my attention. Two female teachers across the Atlantic
were almost simultaneously reprimanded for their misconducts towards students. One British nursery teacher sprayed air freshener on her students whom she considered to be smelling like curry. Most of the students sprayed come from Bangladesh, which raises ethical issues as well. An experienced teacher with 20 years in teaching, got a 2 year suspension this time. The other event seems more far-fetched, an American teacher who divulged her past sex life to her students got her teaching career ended forever. She told her students about her once being a stripper and a whore, and unfolded her sexual relationship with her ex-boyfriend.

I am not in a position to comment on the way they fix bad teachers. Something does occur to my mind though, are both cases really that serious? What should a teacher be like? What are the cans and cannots for a teacher? What role do teachers play in education? I recall the education I received from my primary school and the like. Teachers slapped me and humiliated me with dirty words in front of the whole class, warning other students not to be friends with me when everybody was present, simply because of my disobedience or their dislike towards me.
Those recollections still chill me out these days. I was, therefore, educated to be a very shy man. Feckless, cowardly person I was turned, I was full of anger and hatred. Exacerbated by those failed teachers mistreatment, my rebellion against the society worsened. It was not until I met my high school history teacher that I changed my life. He was a very knowledgeable, yet very kind person. He was respected by almost all students. He always set examples. When he wanted to teach us something, he'd show us the meaning of that thing and he's show us that he was on it as well. He never lied to us, not like most teachers nowadays, talking buoyantly about upholding just and fairness in the classroom while accepting kickbacks under the table. He never lied to us, when he was in disbelief, he'd always explain to us the reasons for his suspicions. He never asked us to do anything unless he did it himself. That is called being honest, being responsible and being qualified as a teacher.

So, all teachers, think before you leap. When you say something or do something to your students, relax for a moment and think whether it is really necessary to do that. What consequences would it be if your child was in the same classroom. Would you say that or do that if your child made the same "mistake"? If you'd not, please don't do that to your students. As the golden principle suggests, don't do anything to others if you'd not like others to do the same thing do you.
