At the weekend, I´ve heard a conversation between Gloria and Alejandro, the last one, and it affects to me, so that because I´m going to write here.
I heard twice and I realised the importance of a relation with the teacher and the pupil. Also the role is very important here. The role affects to you because of the enviorenment, the society, and the most important thing that is , you grow up and you change everything: your points of view, your physical and psychological etc.
Later, I don´t understand this phrase that you tell and is: You´re independent of your role. I know that I´m María López Agredano but I change because of my role.
I also know and I´m agree with you, that is, to suck up to the teacher. I can´t believe that pupil with 18 years old up to know, continue doing that. For my point of view, If you want to have a good relation or have good results, you only have to be what you are not what you liked to be. This is connect with the role. I think the role changes you but in a good sense. It construct you a better person, because you decide with your role if something is good or not. When you notice that you change is because you´re growing up and making you a better person.
Also with your role, you can going down , in this sense, you can change into a bad person, but that is the key if you´re maturing or not.
Comming back to the subject of the relation teacher-pupil, I think that the role is very important in this relationship. If you´re maturing to be a good person and also growing up , even if you are a teacher or a pupil you can´t go so up and becomes in a "witch." because you can´t forget that you have to teach pupil that one gropu understand at first and another ones that understand at second or third.
Summing up I would like to say that, even your growing up you can´t put more taller of what you are. You have to teach at same to everyone and the pupil have to respect the teacher that he/she haves. Because i don´t think the problem is the person, is the respect that someone have and also the role,that why is very important the decision that someone takes with the role, even if the role in that moment is good or not.
