Possible issues that are likely to arise in this scenario include loss of boundary between the student and the teacher, work inefficiency of Ms. K over the student, and reduced organizational skills. As an expressive leader, Ms. K is active as remains popular with her students, assists frequently thereby allowing students to frequent her classroom after school.
Violation occurs if the student fails to acknowledge the authority in the teacher and initiate an argument or even worse if the students fail to complete their tests and academic examinations the teacher offers. Violation can also arise when the teacher-student boundary is overlooked making the students behave casually with the teachers.
The parents and guardians of the students can wrongly accuse the teacher for misdirecting their child. The student can negatively use the teacher’s contacts by sending disrespectful messages. The integrity of the teacher, entire administration and the school community can be lowered in case negative and devaluing messages can leak to the public. This is because teachers are expected to use the official address when communicating with the students or solving any issues including counseling.
The teacher’s warmth, concern, and friendliness can develop to closer social relationship with the student and assist in solving some psychological problems the student may be undergoing. The teacher can officially remain the school counselor to assist such students since she has made a good rapport with the students.
Possible issues arising in this scenario emergency case where a student may require immediate medical attention and the teacher may possess limited medical knowledge. In case the teacher’s vehicle crashes, the other drivers may not be aware of the presence of students in the vehicle unlike the cases where the school’s transportation is involved in an accident.
This can become a violation as the school rules states that every student must cater for their own transportation to the sports venues. Students can also destroy some parts of the vehicle, such as the lift controls, after they have become used to the teacher and the means of transportation. Destruction of any parts of the vehicle is against the school rules and policies.
The teacher can be wrongly accused by students on several instances such as false destination and duration taken from the sports venue. It is degrading for the school community to lack a means of transport for the students for such events. The students may fail to obtain the necessary comfort and safety offered in public and school transportation such as moderate speed of the vehicle and the general condition of the teacher’s vehicle
The teacher can use this time to counsel the students and offer pieces of advice such as encouragement and motivation in all aspects of life. Students are able to learn about real life challenges and solutions from another role model apart from their parents
Among the possible issues, arising in this case is that Mr. J may lose his authority among his students due to the limited physical boundary he has with them. The respect credited to him by the school community is also at stake.
This situation is against the clear boundary between teachers and students as the teacher keeps hugging and patting on the back students instead of maintaining the formal greetings. The institution’s head had advised the teacher over this issue, since the school community is expected to overcome inapt behavior within the school.
The teacher may fail to remain the student’s role model due to the lost respect. Since the teacher is too casual, students are likely to lose their academic responsibilities. The school community may fail to offer guidance to the society over self-worth and observations.
The teacher can follow the principal’s advice and keep physical space to maintain his integrity and reduce negative perception that he has been related with. The school policies and laws should contain specific definition of the forms of greetings and physical closeness members of the school community should uphold.
