Being a teacher has always been something to look forward to. See, a teacher according to Wikipedia is described as a person who helps others to acquire knowledge, competences or values. This is a really among the most respectable jobs in the society. The art of passing knowledge to the benefit of the other is such a great calling. One that selfishly requires to serve others. It takes real passion to actually invest in some other person life and development.
In the 90’s a teacher was a very highly respectable job title one would ever hold. It was equally among the high paying ones too. For one to be labelled a teacher, he was referred as knowledgeable and wise. It’s safe to say a teacher is a foundation of the society. A teacher basically moulds a character, shapes it and nurtures talent to bring out the best of a being. This is because education has the power to change lives.
Every child deserves a shot to have great teachers. Great teachers can be described as motivating, passionate and effective. Such teachers guarantee quality education and education opens path to lifetime opportunities. Teachers play an important role during the formative years of development of a child. The education, morals and characters are shaped in a student to turn them into responsible citizens of a country.
In the 2000’s as economy shot up, cost of living raised really highly. Salaries didn’t really rise to match up the high cost of living. This resulted to drop of popularity of the teaching jobs among various former high end social jobs. The remaining teachers in the service were left straining to cater for more children than they can handle. Overworking and under payment are among the leading reasons of deteriorating lifestyles in a human. Some even acquire avoidable diseases, but due to their passion, love of service and tight budgets, a simple disease turns to a complex condition that greatly affects them.
Sometimes, a great teacher may not be sufficient and effective due to concerns. When a loved one is ailing, say a spouse or a child, it is hard to get that person to be productive. Instead, the moods changes, passion is replaced by worry and gloomy. A teacher’s role really cannot accommodate such a change. The moment a worried teacher under delivers, the life and future of the students is at stake. A teacher needs to be sharp all the time.
