A Teachers Responsibilty
We all believe that Education is the key to success, but how can our future generations become successful someday if the millennials nowadays are complacent to learn?
As a teacher, it is in our hands how our future generations would be, but it is really frustrating to know that only 5 % of the pupils are seriously studying and the 95% are just going to school for the sake of just going, then going home without really learning.
Even the teacher prepares her 100% effort to make the teaching-learning process easy and enjoyable. Still the lack of interest of the pupils make it nonsense. But who’s to blame? Is it the teacher? The curriculum? The pupils? The parents? The government? The community?
If we are really thinking about it, there are many factors why our pupils refuse to learn. As a teacher and as a part of education it is our responsibility to make our pupils become successful someday. As the saying goes, "Teaching is one of the noblest professions". It means that if we put our heart in teaching, our pupils they will feel it and they will change to become better learners.
If we touch their lives, surely we can inspire them to become successful someday. It is not on how the teacher uses different strategies and excellent Instructional Materials but it is on how the teacher treats her pupils like her own child. Because pupils believe that Mother knows best. If they feel that we are like their Mother they will make us proud, they will do their best to become successful someday. So let's treat our pupils like our own child.
