Phone 874-3823 and fairy stories and the ultra-realistic world of everyday adult ,living there exists a class of beings who are a composite of mother, confidant, di$ciplinarian, idol, saint, human being--- and, at times, a bit of a nuisancel These people come in all sizes, weights, sexes and colors. One sees them neatly dressed and well-groomed (which they should always be because of their influence on the children), and one sees them unbecomingly dressed and a little on the sloppy side (which they should never be for the same reason.) Some are poised and self-contained and ambitious, while some are shy and self-effacing and lackadaisical. Like all other classes of human beings, some are whizzes at their jobs, some are mediocre, and some, alas, are poor. Some are conscientiously trying to do their level best; others are struggling along the easy-does-it path; and still others are misfits who should never have wished themselves upon a noble profession such as the one they are failing to serve. It matters not into which category one of these beings falls, he is beset with the same problems as his fellows -- and these problems are multiplied by the days and months and years of toil and by the hundreds of youngsters who pass under his supervision, for this being is a school teacher. To the kids, the teacher may be the object of their devotion, or somebody they just tolerate, or a jailer who keeps their free spirits penned up every single day. They may adore, tease, irritate, provoke, exasperate, endeavor to bully, try to outwit, flatter, or "hate that old lady"; but they wind up doing as she says just the same! Parents are, on the one hand, a blessing to her, or, on the other, the bane of her existence; for parents either respect, aid and abet her and offer her friendship, or denounce, disdain and dishonor her, being suspicious and small -- and enjoying it[ Parents' attitudes are always reflected in the children and may be the direct cause of the trouble little Johnny has with his teacher. A teacher is ideally supposed to esteem all children alike regardless of race or color, state of cleanliness, quirk of personality, social status, mental or physical capacity, mode of dress, ambition, bratiness, wealth, looks, or extent to which they are spoiled. In short, a teacher theoretically ought to be able to .deal productively with all the traits of all the children whether the parents themselves can or notl But Teacher is a fallible being. When Johnny is an angel, she has no trouble living up to the idealistic image that we thrust upon her. Unfortunately, Johnny may be one of the imps of Satan, but beloved by doting parents who may regard any attempt oft Teacher's part to discipline him as an affront to Johnny's dignity, ill-conceived and undeserved by the little darling! A good teacher -- and most of them are sincerely dedicated people -- IS concerned about her charges. She not only works even into the wee hours preparing all that goes with instruction; but she looks after Johnny when he is not well, comforts him when he is distressed, counsels him about his relationship with other children, helps any way she can to see that he is adequately clothed, shields him from the taunts of his fellows, is patient with his mischief, encourages him when he fails -- and dresses him down when he gets out of hand. If Johnny rips his clothing, Teacher fixes it or sees that he gets home; if he hurts himself, she applies first aid; if he wets his pants, she looks after him; if he has a runny nose, she is concerned and sees that he is not exposed to inclement weather: if he has a troubled home, she tries to compensate somewhat: if he needs love and tenderness, she tries to supply it. If he is impetuous, she cools him down; if he is rebellious, she tries to discover the reason so that she may deal with him in a way that will not enhance his rebelliousness; if he is outstanding, she challenges his abilitywith extra work that will interest him; if he has been ill and had to miss school, she plans his work so that he will be able to catch up. Yes, a good teacher tries to be all things to all her pupils; but if all else fails and Johnny is determined to be incorrigible, she may have to administer a shellacking or send him to the principal for more dreaded punishment; but, believe me, it will be deserved and it will be a last resort. And if Johnny understands that you will defend the teacher's judgment, he and Teacher -- and YOU -- will have much less trouble. I know, for I've been there -- on both sides of the fencet
