Once upon a time a student’s name Giada came to make enquiries about learning an instrument. I happen to be around at the reception I have an opportunity to engage her for some few minutes and I said I am a teacher! She looks at me for a few minutes and replied and so what ; immediately I comport myself and ask Giada is there any problem for being a teacher?

After several talks with this little girl l realize her frustration in the context of some selected teachers. Since that they l renounce teaching because is not learning. However, 21st century student understands a teacher is for teaching why learning is for the student.

21st-century student is very aggressive, fast, knowledge and technological lnclined. So, for us that claim to be a teacher it is pertinent to be in the same space with our student if you want to stay relevant of course this might sound stupid more importantly, it’s a reality. As a teacher, you cannot teach the way you were taught some decade ago.

21st-century teacher must pay attention for you to remain relevant and claim you are truly a teacher. Find out new acceptable way to achieve your goals in the classroom and connect with a student. If you want to go far, I advise do not disregard student input and knowledge in the class. As a teacher don’t be static endeavor to explore new ways of teaching your subject.
