Teachers and Students are two different sides of the same coin. In a schooling environment, they both play a vital role. They spend a lot of time together in a day, teaching and learning.
Teachers play the role of a friend, a mentor, a guide, a facilitator and many more on a daily basis. Students interact with their respective teachers in regards to their subject matter in lines with a formal conversation and also informal at times.
Over the past decade or two, students have become far more casual in their interactions with their faculty members. This hinders the existence of a traditional formal environment in an education set up.
But we also cannot deny that with modern trends in education and with the latest approaches adapted for teaching and learning worldwide, the student community has emerged as a major contributor towards the development of the socio-economic background of educational institutions.
Being a 21st-century learner a student is being backed up with a diverse skill set like critical thinking, collaborative, creativity, communication, etc.
As an outcome of which, students surpass the communication barriers and are able to interact in a comfortable way with their educators.
A formal approach while interacting with their teachers and superiors is appreciated, but at the same time, a student should not feel bound by a formal set up while expressing oneself.
As every lock has a different key, every student approach can be different. There is no mandate rule in regards to when it comes to interaction with their teachers.
As far as the approach and the revert can be considered fair, it will be the best way to work from both ends.
