More than a profession, teaching is a calling. Some might have forgotten it because of things that happen beyond their control. May it be what is required of the job, family concerns, money problems, or even politicking. Some might have forgotten what it really means to teach. The values, as a teacher, that we should always have. What we should stand for…
So, here are some of my thoughts on teaching.
My Two Cents (or should I say piso?) on Teaching:
Teaching is not for someone who wants POWER,
It’s for someone who wants to EMPOWER.
It is not for someone who wants FOLLOWERS,
But for someone who wants to create LEADERS.
It’s not for someone who seeks VALIDATION,
But for someone who can give AFFIRMATION freely.
It’s not for someone who is UNCARING,
But for someone who can be STRICT out of love and discipline.
It’s not for someone who wants to get RICH fast,
But for someone who knows how to be RESOURCEFUL when the going gets ‘tight’.
Lastly, teaching is not for those who are QUIET with their convictions. It’s for those who stay TRUE to their convictions, no matter what.
How about you? No matter who you are, what’s your thought on teaching? Who are the people that should be teaching? What kind of values should they have?
