A teacher’s greatest joy-A A +A
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
TEACHING is without a doubt a very challenging job. It is because the welfare of your students is in your hands and it is your responsibility to instill knowledge in them. As a teacher you are partially accountable for the growth of a young person’s life. Being a teacher isn’t just about passing on educational knowledge, you must also hold your attention to the daily lives of students.
This is why teaching jobs should be taken seriously because the future of students is on the line. If children are not given the proper education and breeding in their early years, they might grow up in the wrong way.
Although it may seem that this is difficult, people should take into consideration that this job is rewarding in so many ways. The efforts of teachers do not only lie in educating children but these also contribute in huge circumstances such as training future leaders. Seeing your student grow up to be someone important is definitely a part of your doing.
The greatest joy for me as a teacher is watching unmotivated learners gain sparkling enthusiasm and find their voice, passion and curiosity. Seeing a wonderful transformation in a student happen right before your very eyes is a tremendous source of inspiration for me. At the end of the day, it's all about the positive relationships and the powerful learning.
Knowing that I’ve made a significant difference in their lives, not just in their learning makes me happy. Divina Emingga
