It's not about being liked

Postbox letter from Jim

What about comparing a teacher who has a good work ethic, a diploma possibly from a decent university, years in the game, a PGCE, a professional license. In short, someone that has something behind him and something to offer?


Liking and respecting a teacher are very different things

Postbox letter from Craig

As a teacher or a boss, don't fall into that trap of thinking that you need to lay down the law unfairly and assert yourself in order to get respect - you won't. Students and adults will pretend to respect you, but deep down you'll know they don't.


“I don’t like Teacher Nick.”

Is it important for a teacher to be liked by the students?

The argument goes that happy students learn better, are more willing to buy into a lesson, and feel better about being in class. Being liked is important!
