Hi! it's been a while since I last greeted the members of the forum so I'll say hi again.
I would like to know your views regarding the concept of a teacher and who
teaches whom on any given subject.
MY EYES APPLAUDED SILENTLY
WITH A JOY ASSURED BY SIGHT
SEEING THE TEACHER THAT WAS IN ME
WITH A FIRM AND LOVING MIGHT
First let me mention that in Puerto Rico,teacher is generally translated as
maestro(a) or profesor(a). I presume that holds true for most hispanic
cultures. the problem I have is that maestro can be translated as master.
Ah, the predicaments of translation!
Now I will get to the chase! (Al grano dirán algunos de ustedes.) If one
listens to the teacher, one is accepting the information or giving oneself
permission to learn. If one doe not then whatever knowledge delivered
So who teaches whom? The person who listens thereby controlling
the information he or she receives or the teacher who sends out the
information whether or not the person is absorbing the information.
Obviously, the lecturer at one time was the student.
Most cultures give the impression that the teacher is " the one in front of
the class ".Your thoughts, MAESTROS.
