The Caring Teacher

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.

About the Author

L. Peter Johnson taught for 32 years and then was hired as principal. Before retiring, he had accumulated 38 years in education.


As I observed Peter Johnson's teaching, I realized that something special was happening in his classroom. He always modeled 'Caring Aspects of Teaching.' Caring, however, is not enough, one must have an appropriate knowledge of the subject matter and the ability to transfer that knowledge to the students. Then one must care enough to have high expectations for their success. Peter cared deeply for his students, challenged them to achieve and generously celebrated their successes. He was always available for academic or personal counseling. The 'Golden Throat' award was given each year to the teacher who had the most parent visits during Parent Teacher Conferences. Mr. Johnson won it every year. -- David M. Blomquist, Ph.D, professor emeritus, Northern Michigan University Peter Johnson was the reason I became a teacher. His example of human kindness impacted every student that came into his classroom throughout his years of teaching. My decision to become a teacher is evidence of his impact on my own life. I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from Peter both academically and as a caring teacher. In his last few years in education, Peter went on to become principal and eventually Superintendent. There was a tremendous loss for the students when he left the classroom to become an administrator. The Caring Teacher is L. Peter Johnson. -- Nicholas Gayan, Kingsford High School (MI)
