WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A TEACHER?

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! - LILIBETH B. DAVID

Teach­ing re­quires teach­ers to free them­selves of rigid tasks and fo­cus their ef­forts on im­prov­ing teach­ing and learn­ing.

Teach­ing six (6) hours a day cov­ers 75% of the duty of the teacher a day be­cause in school, learn­ing should be given top pri­or­ity. As the class ad­viser, I need to know what is hap­pen­ing out­side the class­room so that I may know the needs of my learn­ers. I will know how to deal and treat them.

In­creas­ing the pro­fi­ciency level of the learn­ers and meet­ing the tar­geted com­pe­ten­cies are the goals of ev­ery teacher. If these will be achieved, there is no doubt that we can pro­duce glob­ally com­pet­i­tive learn­ers. This can be done by be­ing pre­pared ev­ery­day through a well-planned les­son. Thus, 21st cen­tury learn­ers can be de­vel­oped.

As a teacher, I play a vi­tal role in im­prov­ing learn­ers’ per­for­mance by ap­pre­ci­at­ing them. Sup­port­ing them morally can help in­crease their po­ten­tial and strengthen their con­fi­dence.
