[Paper rend by Miss Zadie Smith fwe the Inst meeting of theOktll.lielin County Teacher’s Association.] There is a co-interest between teacher and school, and what ben efits one necessarily benefits the otqer, By visiting in the home of the child, the teacher be conies personally acquainted with the parents and, reaches a mutual understanding with them regard ing their wishes with reference to the child’s course at school. These visits tend to establish reciprocal confidence and friend ship between parents and teacher and engender pleasant social re lations. They afford the teacher the op portunity to explain to the patrons the value of studies, the impor tance of prompt and regular at tendance, her methods of teaching discipline, etc. Often patrons oppose and criti cise the teacher, simply because they do not properly understand her regime, or mode of manage ment. Convince parents you have the welfare and advancement of their children at heart, and you there) y win their lasting good will and warm support. The tactful teacher, by judicious ly visiting in the homes of her pu pils and making herself agreeable and entertaining io her host and hostess, will cause 'them to speak kindly and complimentary of her to others: and wjiile she is the sub ject of commendation among her patrons, her reputation is increas ing adlr influence u a potent, factor in shaping and moulding public opinion concerning her work in the school room. If the teacher is indifferent about visiting her patrons, some of them become impressed with the idea she is “stuck up” and thinks herself übo'etheni socially. This causes them to entertain a bitter resentment towards her. and while they may not openly express their secret dissatisfaction, they withhold the praise and co-opera tion they would under other cir cumstances cheerfully give her. By visiting among the patrons, she familiarises herself with the home life of the child, its inviron menls and parental treatment and government. This is highly import ant, as it furnishes the teacher the key to discipline. Patrons seldom visit the school, and their opinions in regard tf) its management and progress are bas ed on “children’s talk”. Their information is obtained through the pupil and is nearly al ways piisleading and earonous. However honest the child may be, by lack of reason and judg ment it is incompetent to give a correct version of proceedings that eccur in the schoolroom, or else where, as for that matter. Un fortunately, and to the teacher’s detriment, pupils often willfully and grossly misrepresent at home what transpires at school, and their false exugerated reports are accepted by the parents, who have no other avenges through which to gain information as to the school administration. By visiting the patrons who don’t visit the school (and the others to) the teachers keeps them informed as to the true conditions of affairs and prevents or counter- AQtatfle harmful coosequwcea of NO 51. false reports, When the child is sure the teaoh- ? r WIH , vlsit in t} *e home, and knows the parents will hear from the teacher a correct statement of -ents connected with the school, he child grows weary f “telH ntf false tales out of school”. The school visits of the teacher o home tend to cultivate ties of friendship and trust between teacher and child. It makes them companionable. Association with her patrons lumbJe as some may be, broadens the teacher's life and gives her a .der mid deeper insight of human nature. To know the pupil, it j H necessary to know hia Lome life!
