The most successful educators know that there are two components to teaching: the academic side and the human side. Contrary to what most people think, the human aspect of teaching is by far the most difficult to achieve. Teachers are expected to relate to and educate a wide range of personalities, levels of maturity, and emotions. It is very difficult, perhaps even impossible, to achieve the potential that lies within both the teacher and the student without caring. All teaching methods, techniques, and motivations are a waste of time without the human component. By incorporating the human element, teachers find the solution to classroom tensions. In creating an atmosphere of caring and sharing, the teacher allows the relationship between student and teacher to become loving rather than adversarial.
