Pursuing a teaching profession requires diligence, effort, time, and sacrifice. Not only are you required to study a lot, you are also required to be a role model for all your future students. Becoming a teacher begins with yourself. It must be a passion within you to enlighten the minds of the future generation, and to equip them with the knowledge required to fulfill their dreams and aspirations in life. Becoming a teacher is no easy task; not only is the aptitude requirement high, but also the morals. Every teacher must be bound to a teaching moral that benefits the future of the students, not harm it.
No matter how much we deny it, there are two kinds of teachers: one with the mindset of helping the future generation, and another with the mindset of living life. Some teachers go to extreme lengths just to teach their students, while some live a laid back life, living day to day, doing their routine. There’s a big difference between teaching with passion, and teaching in order to live. As a teacher, there must be an ache in your heart whenever a student is unable to learn due to differences or difficulty.
Schools and universities are now stricter when it comes to hiring teachers. Although there are still some who are still going with the flow, some beg to differ; they hire only the best and only the ones with a passion. It is important for these schools to hire teachers who are aligned with the schools’ vision: to teach children properly in order to give them the ability to live a good life. Not only do they teach academics, they also teach about morals, about life, about well-being. And it is only achievable if the teacher is known well.
