Quality and Love - Welham Boys' School


1. A student who does a shoddy job with classwork and homework.

Teachers play a pivotal role in shaping a child's future, making him/her a better human being. As a teacher, I have encountered several pupils who struggle to keep up with their classwork and assignments and exhibit poor performance in the classroom. In these situations, it is critical to identify the underlying reasons behind the student's subpar performance. I would address this problem in the following way.

Initially, I would evaluate the student's performance and look for behavioural trends. This would entail assessing their prior grades, present workload, study habits, and other factors influencing their performance.

The second approach would be directly discussing the student's performance with them. It is crucial to approach this discussion without passing judgement and to concentrate on finding answers rather than placing blame. It is critical to pinpoint the main reason behind their subpar performance. This could be brought on by a lack of interest, a problem comprehending the subject matter, or other outside influences
like family or personal problems.

Once the root reason has been determined, it is critical to developing a strategy specific to the student's needs. This can entail offering extra assistance through coaching or mentorship, modifying the workload to fit their learning preferences, or offering rewards for better performance.

Ultimately, it is crucial to constantly assess the student's development and modify the strategy as appropriate. Honouring even modest victories helps keep the learner inspired and on task.

2. Two underage students in a romantic relationship.
Teachers assist pupils with life skills and global knowledge outside of the classroom. They develop a student's personality and also assist kids in coping with difficult situations. As a teacher, it's critical to establish a secure and encouraging learning environment for all children. Here is how I would handle a case if two underage students were involved in a romantic relationship.

Firstly, I would begin by comprehending the school's policy on student relationships. To do this, you must examine the school handbook or chat with other administrators or teachers.

Secondly, to have a private discussion with the two concerned students. This would entail hearing their viewpoint, comprehending their intentions, and ensuring they know the school's relationship policy. By doing this, we can understand their psychological state. We should engage them in activities which would keep them engrossed and help them to focus on their overall development of themselves for which
they come to school.

If required, I would also bring up the subject with the parents of the two students. By doing this, it might be possible to ensure everyone is on the same page and that the student's safety and well-being are prioritised. However, students need help understanding the magnitude of the situation. In that case, we, as guardians, can provide assistance to pupils in the form of emotional support or by referring them to a school counsellor or other outside support resources may be part of this.

Lastly, monitoring is critical to ensure the students are not misbehaving or violating school rules. To make sure that everyone is on the same page and that the youngsters are secure and supported, it can be helpful to regularly check in with the students and their parents.
