Carean Oh is an experienced educator who advices that it takes a village to raise a child who will be successful in life.
I believe that the role of a teacher is important. But a counsellor’s role is even more imperative. Students are given proper guidance on how to deal with psychological problems which can badly impact their performance and confidence in schools. One other perspective is that teachers must also undertake some form of training as counsellors. There is no closer person in the classroom who fosters more care and has the ability to reach out to the students than the teacher.
