Starting at school begins a journey in the education system some of us loved or loathed.In a child's life they will deal with a minimum of 10 teachers in their primary years and 5 a day at high school for up to 5 years.You got to hope they will find someone in there who gets them. I mean they are our precious little angels and we understand them, don't we! I often worry about the relationships that form or don't form between the teacher and the student.These relationships create the fabric on which all learning is based.I mean if your teacher knows you, they will be able to assist your learning by providing material that suits you. Where do you fit during this journey? Are you the ticket collector? The driver ? My take is that you too are a another passenger and should develop the same sort of relationship with the teachers as well.
