1. Be a teacher who sincerely loves student; be their friend. Be a friend in whom they can trust and share their problems with. More than anything else, you must gain their heart.
2. Foster the students with the heart of the parent, as if they were your own child. If you only them knowledge, that is 100% failure. If students have problems, it is because of the teacher.
3. Teach them through sacrifice, devoting your whole body, soul and life
4. Be a kind and loving teacher. (self-control, patience, generosity and gentleness) Patience is needed in the work of education. They are students because other they are lacking and need to be satisfied. If they were told something the day before and it was not done, tell them again.
5. Have impartial love and show concern and love for each, manner and every student.
6. Transform students by the influence of an upright life which clearly shows the difference between official and personal business.
7. Be a teacher who humbly treats the students with respect, manner, and kindness.
8. The students’ worries should be the teachers’ worries. Solving a student’s worry will be a link of love that will make them one. Then no matter you ask of them, they will obey.
9. You must present to energetic students a clear and resolute vision, goal, ideas and hopes.
10. There is a need for discernment for guiding children. You must know when to “open the door” from time to time for students who always seek something new.
1. The sympathetic understanding of the teacher and the parents
The teachers in the home and the teachers in the school should have a sympathetic understanding of one another’s work. They should labor together harmoniously, imbued with the same spirit. Striving together to benefit the children physically, mentally and spiritually, and to develop characters that will stand the test of temptation.
2. The family is the greatest educational agency
The family should be the greatest of all education agencies. It is in the home that the education of the child is to begin. Here, is the first school. Here, with the parents are instructor, he is to learn the lessons that are to guide him throughout life-lessons of respect, obedience, reverence and self-control.
3. Administer the rules of the school in wisdom and love
Administer the rules of the school in wisdom and love, not with a rod. Children will respond with willing obedience to the rule of love. Make their life as happy as possible. Provide them with innocent amusements. Make the school happy, a holy, consecrated place. Keep the soil of the heart mellow by the manifestation of love and affection.
1. The teacher must tell the students plainly what can be and what cannot be. Showing that our school are established at great expense for a definite purpose, and that all which would hinder the accomplishment of this purpose must be put away.
2. If the students were determined to have their own will and their own way, it would be better for them to return to their homes and to the guardianship of their parents. This they could do at any time if they decided not to stand under the yoke of disobedience, for we did not design to have a few leading spirit in wrong doing demoralizing the other students.
3. Great care should be exercised in the matter of expelling students. There are times when this must be done. It is a painful task to separate from the school the one who incites others to disobedience and disloyalty but for the sake of other students this is sometimes necessary. When teachers see that to retain a student is to expose others in bad influence, they should separate him from the school.
4. The students will make many mistakes, and the teacher never to forget to be compassionate and courteous. The greatest of teachers are those who are most patient and most kind. By their treatment of the students let them be wise and pitiful. Let them not forget that these youth are in need of wholesome, encouraging words and helpful deeds.
5. Since the surrender of the will is so much difficult for some pupils than for others, the teachers should make obedience to his requirements as easy as possible. The will should be guided and molded, but not ignored or crushed. Save the strength of the will, in the battle of life it will be needed.
6. Help the child to see that parents and teachers are representatives of God. And that, as they act in harmony with Him, their laws in the home and the school are also His. As the child to render obedience to God.
7. To direct the child’s development without hindering it by undue control should be the study of both parent and teacher. Too much management is bad as too little. The effort to “break the will” of a child is a terrible mistakes. Minds are constituted differently; while force may secure outward submission, the result with many children is more determined rebellion of the heart.
8. Rules should be few and well considered; and when once made, they should be enforced. Whatever it is found impossible to change, the minds learned to recognize and adapt itself to; but the possibility of indulgence induces desire, hope and uncertainty, and the result are restlessness, irritably and insubordination.
