The modern world is becoming more competitive and so, the children also need to adjust fast, in order to survive in this world. It is the duty of the k-12 teachers to ensure that all their students are skilled enough to take on the challenges of the modern world.
The children coming to the schools are from diverse backgrounds. They come from different areas and more often than not, from different cultural and religious backgrounds. So, it is important that the k-12 teachers remember the significant issue of diversity while creating a curriculum for the students.
The k-12 teachers must ensure better participation of the specialists in the curriculum. This will increase the interest of the students in the regular classes and they will be happy to contribute too. The k-12 teachers must encourage the students of his class to contribute in the ongoing class, as it should never be a one way communication.
It is also important for the k-12 teachers to keep on upgrading their own capabilities, and knowledge, to meet the growing demands of the diverse students in his class in particular and the school in general. Workshops are also important from the point of view of the k-12 teachers. The school authorities must organize occasional workshops where eminent scholars from the field of education and child psychology may be invited to interact with the k-12 teachers. This will allow the k-12 teachers to gain much confidence and knowledge about the newer and better means of imparting education to their students much more effectively.
The k-12 teachers must also try to take care of the specific problems and needs of their students. Every student is different from the next one and so, their needs and problems will also be different. It is the duty of the k-12 teachers to spot the problem and try to solve it in a way, so that the student feels confident and solves the problem too. Many scholars all over the world are working day and night in order to ensure that the needs of every student are catered to.
