TEACH­ING: A BIG RE­SPON­SI­BIL­ITY

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

HENRY D. MANALOTO

There are many quotes or say­ings con­nected to teach­ing. Teach­ing is not only a pro­fes­sion, but a MIS­SION, teach­ing is a VO­CA­TION, teach­ing is a CALL­ING. These are just some of the quotes in the field of teach­ing. True enough that the pro­fes­sion is not just a task but a big RE­SPON­SI­BIL­ITY.

Dis­crim­i­na­tion of knowl­edge is the pri­mary obli­ga­tion of a teacher. In­tel­lec­tual ca­pa­bil­i­ties of the learn­ers de­pend upon how his or her teacher in­cul­cated the lessons aside from the per­sonal mo­ti­va­tion of the stu­dent to learn. More of­ten, pupils/ stu­dents rely on their lessons al­though it is equally the role of the par­ent to take a share for the ed­u­ca­tional de­vel­op­ment of their chil­dren.

Proper at­ti­tudes, man­ners, deco­rum or norms are not only the obli­ga­tion of the par­ents but also ac­counted to teach­ers. The Big Re­spon­si­bil­ity of the teach­ers now comes in.

Teach­ers play an im­por­tant role their stu­dents. The per­son­al­ity of teacher is a friendly teacher and a dis­ci­plinar­ian. The fair and square treat­ment of the teacher is so im­por­tant among the learn­ers.

The suc­cess of stu­dents is al­ways re­garded as the seeds of the col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­forts of the par­ents and teach­ers. As teach­ers, we are paid or com­pen­sated well but the real pay­ment is our WORTH of stu­dents as they go out the school premises. Are they dis­ci­plined? Do they work ef­fec­tively? If the re­sponse is pos­i­tive then we took part in the BIG RE­SPON­SI­BIL­ITY.

— oOo—
