The role of the teacher in a classroom is very significant; therefore it must be executed with excellence.Emerging from the issue, led me to contemplate the virtue of punctuality on the part of the teacher. I have personally observed the advantages of coming to class early. I will be discussing some of these in this article.
Maintaining Order and discipline-
If a teacher enters the class early, this will prevent trouble some students from carrying out their disturbances. This is good because the teacher will immediately go ahead with the day’s lesson without the need to focus on maintaining order and discipline. Furthermore, it is to the teacher’s advantage because the feelings of relaxation before the commencement of the lesson will
eventually enhanced productivity.
Imagine the syllabus that must be completed before the end of the semester and to allow for revision and exams; all these require enough time. If the teacher is not smart enough to be organized and punctual, valuable time will be wasted. So punctuality and good time management will produce a class that is well focused and organized and in this way, the target of the semester or the academic year will be achieved.
Excellent Role model-
By being well organized and punctual, the teacher would have set an excellent example for the students to follow. In addition, it would send a positive signal to the students of what is expected of them from the beginning. This makes control easier and the pace of teacher-success would have been in motion.
