ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the importance of the art of human relations to producing better teachers in the U.S. in 1941. It is important that the teacher has an abiding interest in humanity which he responsibly applies in the classroom. The teacher must be able to maintain class control by being firm and courageous. Students appreciate a cheerful and good-humored teacher. The teacher must not be afraid to laugh with the students even if the joke is occasionally on the teacher himself. The teacher must be able to find and adhere to the fine balance between aloofness and over-familiarity. The teacher must also be able to communicate effectively to students that their rights and wishes will be respected, and that democracy will be applied in the classroom. Applying such points will enable teachers to become successful not only as educators but also as human relations artists.
