The Relation of Pupil to Teacher


A good deal is said and written about the relations of teacher to pupil, and but little on the other side of the question—the relations of pupil to teacher. Perhaps the reason is that writers know their advice is mostly read by teachers, rather than pupils. But if the teacher were treated with the same courtesy and kindness that every teacher should meet out to his students, the lot of the teacher would certainly be a more pleasant one. Social attentions and occasional remembrances of different kinds are not wasted on the average teacher. Nearly every teacher expends on his pupils more thought and worry than is “nominated in the bond,” but in many cases this is repaid with carelessness and ingratitude rather than thoughtfulness and courtesy.
