THE BEAUTY OF AN OBSERVER / TEACHER
Teacher's role is so sensitive that he has to be extremely careful about her looks, attitude, facial expressions, gesture, posture, and even where he stands or sit...and what he speaks, otherwise he can easily make the Learning process disappear.....
"The mind takes some time to develop interest, to be set in motion, to get warmed up into a subject, to attain a state of profitable work. If at this time there is interruption, not only is a period of profitable work lost, but the interruption, produces an unpleasant sensation which is identical to fatigue".
Such a scientific Observation is needed by the teacher to go with the laws of nature.
"Before such attention and concentration have been attained, the teacher must learn to control herself so that the child's spirit shall be free to expand and show its powers; the essence of her duty is not to interrupt the child in his efforts. This is a moment in which the delicacy of the teacher's moral sensitiveness, acquired during her training, comes into play. She must learn that it is not easy to help, nor even, perhaps, to stand still and watch. Even when helping and serving the children, she must not cease to observe them, because the birth of concentration in a child is as delicate a phenomenon as the bursting of a bud into bloom. But she will not be watching with the aim of making her presence felt, or of helping the weaker ones by her own strength. She observes in order to recognize the child who has attained the power to concentrate and to admire the glorious rebirth of his spirit."
(Dr. Maria Montessori, 'The Absorbent Mind')
For all this to happen Schools should stop acting as a Prison and stop Producing Confirmists and only then Explorers, Innovators and Creators will be joining the CREATIVE FORCE...and not the (work force).
