A teacher’s de­scrip­tion

Sun.Star Baguio - - Speak Out - Bay­gan Ab­rina L.

“A good teach­ers is like a can­dle that con­sumes it­self to light the way for oth­ers. He can even change a delin­quent into a solid cit­i­zen through ac­tions, the way he talks and deal with the peo­ple in the school com­mu­nity and coun­try”.

The role of a teacher is not easy. It is full of chal­lenges and sac­ri­fices. Nur­tur­ing the learn­ers to be­come re­spon­si­ble cit­i­zens, well­rounded per­son and be­come some­body in the fu­ture is a big chal­lenge on the part of a teacher. Nowa­days, learn­ers were ex­posed with the new tech­nolo­gies that af­fect their be­hav­iors and be­came lazy in mak­ing re­quire­ments and even go­ing to school. Thus, teacher should be an en­ter­tainer, coun­selor, en­er­getic, pas­sion­ate, sen­si­tive, car­ing, lov­ing, pa­tient, creative and un­der­stand­ing in deal­ing with learn­ers. In or­der to have learn­ing in­side the class­room, and teacher is oblige to dis­cover strate­gies, tech­niques, tools and ac­tiv­i­ties that are suited with the in­ter­est of the in­di­vid­ual for them to grasp the les­son, gain knowl­edge and to avoid bore­dom.

A teacher is said to be a hero, since he needs to aug­ment his time and ef­fort to train and de­velop the in­nate tal­ents and skills of the learn­ers. The DepEd wants that the learn­ers be­come holis­tic so they cre­ated many ac­tiv­i­ties, train­ings and sem­i­nars for both learn­ers and teach­ers.

A teacher is said to be a provider, since he some­times pro­vide the needs of his pupil/stu­dents as a coach and a se­cond par­ent dur­ing School com­pe­ti­tions in any level.

A teacher is said to be self-sup­port­ing, since he needs to pay in some sem­i­nars and train­ings in or­der for him to learn more and be up­dated.

A teacher is said to be multi-task­ing, since to take at home what­ever un­fin­ished work such as pa­per works, lessons and vis­ual aids to be pre­pared.

Of all the chal­lenges, a teacher’s joy, hap­pi­ness and ful­fill­ment is to see his learn­ers be­come a suc­cess­ful and a re­spon­si­ble per­son.

Lastly, God is the helper, giver of wis­dom and knowl­edge to all teach­ers so they can teach whole­heart­edly to the learn­ers.

Long Live teach­ers and con­tinue to be a bless­ing. Matago-tago tako am-in!
