Difference between Teacher & Educator

Teacher and Educator are defined by many as synonyms, but if we go to see there is difference between both. Teacher is a person who teaches children in school. His profession is paid and he requires special training and qualifications to be a teacher. To be an educator you don’t need any such training or specialization. A person can be an educator without being a teacher. Parents are a child’s first and most influential educator.
Teacher is the master of his subject. He in school imparts theoretical knowledge and focuses more on curriculum, assignments, syllabus and assessments. An educator is beyond this. He is not only a teacher, but a motivator, facilitator, mentor and a trainer. His main focus is the all round development of a child. He is skilled in teaching and focuses on intellectual, moral and social instructions. His work area is not just confined to a classroom. His influence is beyond that. Educators are those leave an influence on their students even after they are far off. He is the person who shapes up the life of a child. It's the educator who interacts and makes relationships with students more important than the content, but because of those relationships, the content comes alive.
Teaching isn't just a job to an educator, it's a calling. It’s passion and commitment and a desire to amplify the voices and dreams of the children. In the end I would like to say that every teacher on this earth needs to be an educator and that will make the difference in Education.

My experience of my school
“Learning gives creativity,
Creativity gives thinking,
Thinking provides knowledge,
Knowledge makes you great…”
It is a matter of great pride for me to study in The Fabindia School. This school is one of the most promising schools of learning. We have a great and excellent environment which facilitates us to have as many opportunities as possible. In such a situation there is nothing most important than having such a good school in the rural background. The background and achievements of the school is really great.
The children of the school are imparted with good quality education. It provides a happy, caring and comforting environment for each to learn. It has a desire and dream to see of the children like us who live in villages. I never thought that I will get such good environment to learn, teachers to teach and good friends. - Devika Choudhary/ X/ TH
