A teacher plays many different roles in his/her service period. A teacher teaches different subjects to his/her students all the time.

Taking attendance is a part of teaching. While taking attendance the teacher calls out the names of students to mark his or her attendance, while doing so, when the students answer ‘present teacher’, and if the voice of the student is not usual the teacher stops and looks at the student and enquiries, “Aren’t you well?” if the answer is positive the teacher directs the child to the resting room, and sends a message to the parent. Here the teacher is performing the role of a mother.

All our students need a lot of emotional lift most of the times. Like adults’ children also face problems and go through stress. At that time, they need a friend an ear to listen to them, a teacher will always lend her ears for a patient listening. Here a teacher is a friend and a philosopher.

When students are bored by the topic being taught by the teacher in class, a teacher will crack a joke and make her students laugh to get their attention back to the topic in class. That helps them to pay attention at the teacher for at least the next 20 minutes. Here a teacher plays the role of a joker cum facilitator.
