‘Teachers should help students develop a balanced personality’
Teachers should continuously update their knowledge to keep themselves abreast with the changing times, said Satavahana University Vice-Chancellor, Prof. K. Veera Reddy.
Addressing teachers at an orientation programme held at Kakatiya University here, he said that nowadays, students learn many things from different sources unlike in the past, where the classroom was the only source.
To be a successful teacher, he or she should learn more and give more to the student. “Students are good in academics but character wise, they need to improve. The teachers should identify this aspect and help students develop a balanced personality,” he said.
