In Loco-Parentis

"To some of your students, whether you asked for the job or not, you are also a surrogate father or mother" (Lemire 23).

In loco-parentis. This term pretty much sums up the quote that I picked out. In Foundations of Education this is one of the first concepts that students learn. When students arrive to your classroom you now take on the parent figure. You responsible to make decisions in the best interest for the child and also provide a safe environment for each child. In another part of this chapter that list all the many roles a teacher is. It is very important for future and current teachers to understand that being a teacher requires you to fulfill unlimited roles.
