    One of the teachers is not paying attention to the studentís problems

    I am the Principal of a government organisation. Recently I came to know that one of the teachers at our school is not at all paying attention to the studentís problems and is taking no interest in them. I donít want to terminate her as she is a very experienced teacher. What to do in such a situation?

    As you are the principal of the school it is your duty to ensure that all the teachers in the school are giving their best and the children could take maximum benefit from them.

    You must call the teacher and ask her that what is the problem with her and why she is not paying attention to students problem.

    You should make her realise that she is paid for teaching and helping students and if she can't complete her duty than she is not eligible for the post.

    This is not at all a tolerable behaviour by the teacher, what is the use of experience if she cannot help children in solving there problems.

    Seeing such indiscipline in work other teachers will also have a bad impact and thus will severely effect the teaching environment of the school.

    So it is better that you give her a strict warning so that other teachers also get a message that such unprofessional behaviour is not at all acceptable.

    Hi,

    Please discuss the issue with her and try to find out the route cause of the problem you are facing...it s not that if you terminate her, you will not find any good replacement...

    If you found that intentionally she is not taking interest, then you have to take care of the issue...she should also have some fear of her job...however before taking any decision you have to be more cautious by taking proper informations regarding her behaviour...

    She might be facing some issues which needs to be resolved and then again she can continue behaving good...a good counceling may help....

    First of all try to figure it out the route cause of the issue and then the decision can be taken based on the situations... approach needs to be taken properly as some one's job is involved, and as a Principal you have to take the decision with proper care so that no one is harmed with your decision...

    Hello,


    Teaching is a noble profession and it should always ube used to help students. You should
    talk to the person to see wheather she is having some personal problems such as health
    related issue or financial problems or mental blockage as such. You should request her to
    kind take special attention while teaching students and help them when necessary. If she
    changes her behaviour then everything is fine otherwise you have to issue a "ShowCause"
    latter to her.

    Bye,

    hello,
    after parents teacher is the only one who gives a good advice and helps him in building up his career and molding him to become a good citizen is teacher.so as a principal first call her and ask her about what is the problem behind it and give her a good counseling regarding the behavior of her in dealing with the students.try to solve it by requesting her and say that the future of the students were in the hands of you and you should not spoil them.
    if she doesnot listen then tell her to resign the job eventhough she had full of experience.experience is waste if it is not used in a useful manner.
    thank you.............

    Hello Aspirant,

    It is to be noticed that a human being has to face many types of situations in life.The problems may be personal,official,family problems,social,financial etc.it seems the concerned teacher is not taking interest in his/her duty since the last few days as she/he is a very experienced teacher.

    The situation with the concerned teacher may be favourable this time.So called the concerned teacher in your chamber,Enquire of the matter & guide him/her in right direction.Also warn him/her that there may be severe action against you,if thematter is reported to next higher authority,

    Hope there will be some solution.

    Good luck.

    respected sir,,
    as you mention that one of your school teacher is not paying attention on the students. it's a very serious problem because the future of your students are depends on the those teacher. so what you have to do is that firstly politely talk to the teacher that this type of behavior is not permitted in our school . after some day monitor on that particular a noticed if behavior is still not change then file a complain of the particular teacher and send it to your respect board. i am sure they will be taken a necessary step on this..
    thanking you hope you like my comment..

    Dear sir, you are a Principal of the institution you have got one complaint that one of the teacher is not paying

    attention to the students' problems.As a Principal you know the teacher well she is experienced good teacher

    you do not like to take any action against the teacher.Now thinking what to do?

    1.You try to meet with her personally.

    2.Exchange views and good wishes.

    3.Ask gently about the complaint against her.

    4.According to her views definitely she will answer correctly.

    5.If she has any personal problem then try to give her good advise to show more interests to the students'

    problem and not to act inhumanly should behave with all as a good experienced teacher, which will enhance her

    prestige as well as fame of the institution.

    Thank you,

    Hello Sir...

    Well...You do not want to terminate the teacher just because of her experience..!!
    Sir, this shouldn't matter you...All it should matte you is the knowledge,career and future of the students...
    Do call her personally and ask her for the lack of attention towards them...It is her duty as she is paid...and it is a must rule..!!

    Because a good teacher in fact becomes a role model for students. Students tend to follow their teacher in almost every way like manners, style etc...Students tend to get affected by the teacherís affection as well as love for them... So the teacher should have the professional competence as well as good moral background in order to impart these values to students...

    ThanQ..

    Hi aspirant

    I think that teacher should definitely realise her responsibility towards the students and should not behave in such an immature manner. You should definitely not sit quietly in this matter and even if you don't want to terminate her, you should atleast try to make her realise her mistake so that she comes on the right path and stop behaving with the students in such a way. She should definitely solve their problems and should help them when they want it. Its her duty and she should better not misuse her power in this manner.

    You should call her to your office and tell her that you have found out that she is not at all paying attention to the student's problems and is taking no interest in them. Being such an experienced teacher you did not expect this from her. You will give her another chance due to her good record and its better if she starts helping her students otherwise the next time you will be forced to take strict action against her.

    I am sure she will get your point and will not behave in such a way from now on. Good luck

    Its not the matter of experience or seniority its matter of addressing students problems and students should be clarified on each and every doubt they have because this will create some learning attitude with in the students.. When you don't address students on their problems then what is the use of experience that cannot improve the students overall development. You should always encourage students to explore and develop critical thinking in students when you don't address mere problems then you cannot improve the organisation..

    Re: One of the teachers is not paying attention to the studentís problems

    When you are the primary of the college it is your duty to ensure all of the teachers in the college are giving their utmost and the kids could take optimum take advantage of them.

    You have to contact the teacher and question her that what is the situation with her and why she isn't making time for pupils problem.

    You ought to make her understand that she is taken care of teaching and helping pupils and if she can not total her duty than she isn't qualified to receive the post.

    This really is never a tolerable behaviour by the teacher, what is the usage of experience if she cannot help children in fixing there problems.

    Seeing such indiscipline in function other teachers will also have a bad impact and thus may seriously impact the teaching environment of the school.

    Therefore it is better that you give her a strict warning so that other teachers also get yourself a meaning that such unprofessional behaviour is never acceptable.

    Teaching is just a noble career and it will always ube used to greatly help students. You ought to
    speak to the person to see wheather she is having some particular problems such as for example health
    related concern or financial problems or mental obstruction as such. You ought to demand her to
    sort get special interest while teaching pupils and help them when necessary. If she
    improvements her behaviour then everything is fine otherwise you have to concern a "ShowCause"
    latter to her.
    It will be noticed that a person has to face various kinds of scenarios in life.The problems might be particular,formal,household problems,social,financial etc.it seems the worried teacher isn't getting fascination with his/her duty because the last few times as she/he is just a really experienced teacher.

    The problem with the worried teacher might be favourable this time.So named the worried teacher in your chamber,Enquire of the matter & guide him/her in proper direction.Also warn him/her that there could be extreme action against you,if thematter is reported to next larger authority,

    Trust there will be some solution.
    I think that teacher should understand her duty towards the pupils and should not behave in this premature manner. You should maybe not sit quietly in this subject and even though you do not desire to cancel her, you ought to atleast take to to create her understand her mistake so that she occurs the right path and stop behaving with the pupils in such a way. She should solve their problems and should help them when they want it. Its her duty and she should better maybe not misuse her power in this manner.

    You ought to contact her to your office and tell her that you have found out that she is never making time for the student's problems and is getting no fascination with them. Being this experienced teacher you did not assume this from her. You can give her yet another chance as a result of her good report and its better if she starts helping her pupils otherwise the very next time you'll have to get strict action against her.

    Teachers play a important role in developing the future. But if no attention is paid on students it affect them. So you need to make sure that all teachers are paying right attention to students. If not so, then you must call that teacher, firstly seek her explanation the reason behind her non attention and give a strict warning that this kind of behaviour won't be tolerated. If that teacher continue, then i find no reason to keep her in school. What the use of experience when she is unable to disturbute the experience properly, so terminate her.
