teachers as role models help the children learn about honesty, good education and the rules and regulations. and we should demonstrate positive behaviour and respect for our colleagues as a role model. effective and sensible communication and mutual respect for others should be practised within our working environment. when there are disagreements or personal issues with our colleagues they should be dealt in a professional and sensible manner. If we do not demonstrate such actions it would impact negatively on the children which will lead them to practice the same behaviour. if the child doesn’t see a good working relationship between adults, they may think that its normal and start being like that themselves.
