An ideal environment is where holistic development propagates, and nourishment is given to the students
To me, an ideal school is one where students are free to ask questions. More they ask questions, more they acquire knowledge. There must be a technologically advanced environment. But, we should remember that it should not be devoid of the human touch. An ideal place is where holistic development is promoted - a place where students and teachers primarily focus on their professional advancement and growth.
A teacher should motivate students to choose the right path in their quest for professional achievements
A teacher’s role should be that of a facilitator. Students are young and their minds are susceptible. A teacher, as a mentor, should motivate the students to choose the right path in their quest for professional achievements. In modern pedagogy, a teacher must come down to the student's level to understand the real problems faced by them during the entire learning process.
