Teaching

I don’t think it is exactly true that teachers get better with age. I believe that experience is important, but who is to say that a younger person doesn’t have as much experience as the older person. I think it all depends. I also believe that younger teachers are usually more energetic. From my experiences I have noticed that I have a lot more fun in classes where younger teachers are teaching. They also relate better to their students. This can be good and bad. If they relate too much, to the extent that they are trying to be the student’s friends, then the teacher will get no respect. On the other hand, if they simple relate to what we are going through as students, it will make then a lot better of a teacher. There are some cases where older teachers are better, but for the most part, I think that a younger teacher is better at their job.
