PAS­SION FOR TEACH­ING

Teach­ing is said to be a noble pro­fes­sion since all other pro­fes­sions were cre­ated be­cause of the qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion given by ed­u­ca­tors. Teach­ers are the im­ple­menters and man­agers of a cur­ricu­lum. With­out their var­ied strate­gies, ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment to teach­ing, qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion will not be en­sured to learn­ers.

Be­ing a teacher re­quires pas­sion to per­form the tasks and du­ties rel­e­vant to the pro­fes­sion. Learn­ers come to the class­room with empty cup in their heads, and as teach­ers, it is one of their roles to fill in the empty cups of stu­dents with knowl­edge that they may use in the fu­ture.

Teach­ing stu­dents is also pre­par­ing them to be in­de­pen­dent in the fu­ture. Al­though some­times, it is hard for teach­ers to let pupils mas­ter and ap­ply all the com­pe­ten­cies of the cur­ricu­lum. But, a teacher al­ways put his/her heart on the pro­fes­sion, as they do not give up in giv­ing dif­fer­ent op­por­tu­ni­ties to learn­ers.

It is ev­i­dent that most of the learn­ers never for­get what the teacher im­parts to them. One of the ev­i­dences is be­ing able to be rec­og­nized by the stu­dents after a long pe­riod of time, wherein they still re­mem­ber what the teacher did to them.

As teach­ers, it is one of our re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to make a dif­fer­ence on the be­hav­ior of a child. As se­cond par­ent of stu­dents, teach­ers must not think that their job is only to teach stu­dents, but, teach­ers must also guide and lead the stu­dents to the right path.
