Hoping for a Miracle...
The problem of continuity between the levels of education is acquiring special urgency. And in this regard, the experience of School No. 16 of Chirchik is interesting, where I worked for many years as a teacher.
To make the arrival of children from kindergarten to school gentler, to enable them to quickly adapt to new conditions, the teachers of this school become familiar with the forms and methods of work in preschool institutions. They communicate with children, their parents go to classes. Today’s preschooler came to school, and he is met... by an already familiar teacher. Therefore, the adaptation of the child to school is not protracted.
The process of moving a child from primary to secondary school for children, parents and teachers is also not a problem here. Subject teachers cooperate with primary school teachers. Within the framework of this cooperation, lessons are held at which middlelevel teachers are present in elementary school, thus having the opportunity to assess in advance the characteristics of children in this class. This form of cooperation allows us to prevent many pedagogical and psychological problems, to actually carry out the prevention of childhood disadaptation.
The task of the school’s teaching staff during the adaptation period of schoolchildren is to identify those changes in the child’s life that need to be mitigated and made smoother.
Knowing the list of requirements of a secondary school teacher, the working methods of an elementary school teacher, the school administration seeks to observe continuity in the selection and placement of personnel.
Headmaster Erkina Sabitova has extensive experience. She came to school in 1991. Initially, she worked as a primary school teacher, then she taught Russian at the middle level. Since 2003 she has been the director of an educational institution.
Her credo, which she conveys to all teachers and mentors: “Be careful! Make no mistake! Do no harm! Be a schoolboy hope! Know what you strive for! Constantly look in the child for the wealth of his soul! Be patient in anticipation of a miracle from a child and be ready to meet him!”
How relevant it is! How it is necessary for all teachers in bringing up a harmoniously developed generation! But how difficult it is!
Recently I learned from media reports that in a distant Sakhalin school a teacher humiliated a seventh grader for being untidily dressed. Not just humiliated, and insulted her and her parents, calling the girl a foster daughter, and her parents inadequate. I admit, I was shocked, I just felt uneasy!
Over the poor girl, despite the fact that she was crying bitterly, the whole class laughed, after that she started bleeding from her nose...
Yes, it is possible! After all, a teacher for a child is an indisputable authority! And an example to follow! Not just humiliate or insult, a true teacher should not even accidentally offend a student.
And it’s good that the teacher apologized to the girl and to the whole class. And then she even quit the school...
But the trauma inflicted by her on the schoolgirl will not heal quickly. And how relevant are the words of Erkina Sabitova: do not make a mistake, do no harm! Let every teacher remember these words.
