Being a teacher
is not that easy. It is challenging. Only the brave ones can survive. However,
most people think that being a teacher is so easy. We only need to read some
pages of book today and deliver it in the next day. If you have the same
thought, you need to read this comprehensively.
Teacher is Like a Doctor
like the best profession of all other professions. That is absolutely wrong. Teacher
is a “doctor” also. The knowledge that the teacher delivers can be so vital for
the students. It is same as the injection.
So, when a
teacher delivers something for his student, at the same time, the doctor is
injecting something to the patient body. Two things can happen whether the
person will heal or die. Bad habit or something wrong that we teach to the
students can be poison that can “kill” them. Do you get that? So, what I am
going to say here is that the teachers have responsibility to their students as
the doctors have responsibility to their patients. You see?
Teaching is Learning
it is quite boring to deliver the same thing every single year. We seem stuck
and can’t be more knowledgeable. That is also wrong. When a teacher is teaching
his students, he also learning at the same time.
looks same but believe me, everything in this life is improving and keep
changing as the technology does. So, every subject is being improved by the
master. Except that, teacher is also learning about the skill in teaching.
Teaching is a Skill, Not Only Knowledge
Put this, there
is a man who is brilliant. He seems know everything. Then, there is another man
who does not as clever as the first man. When both of them comes into a class to
teach, we can’t guarantee that the first man will be better in teaching.
Why? Because to
be a good teacher, smart is not enough. There are a lot of smart people that
don’t have an ability to deliver it to others (students). They don’t know the
best way to deliver it, the good way in writing in the whiteboard, the best way
in handling young problems, etc.
That is why a
teacher must be someone who have a background study of educational program.
Someone who trained enough and has a skill in teaching.
To be a Teacher Keeps You Young
Do you believe
that everything that happens in our life is connected to our environment? For
example, we will adopt several of old people habit if we always with them.
Otherwise, we also will adopt several habits from young people if we gather
with them every day.
Being a teacher
will make you gather with the young people. They are happier than the others.
So, it will make you happier too and happy will make you young.
To anyone who
reads this, please appreciate your teachers. All of them. If you are a teacher
and already reading this, you have to know that you are amazing!
