Teaching is a sacred word ,it’s the bridge to build the world. It’s the teachers’ sword to fight the darkness of ignorance and to enlighten minds to build nations.
Teaching is unlike other careers ,it’s completely different. It’s the best job ever yet the worst. It’s the easiest yet the most difficult. It’s the simplest yet the most complicated.
Yes ,it’s the paradox that makes teaching an amazing job to have.
Teachers are compared to messengers ,despite the obstacles and the tiredness they go through they keep the hope flag raising. They keep that soft smile on their faces even though their hearts are drowning into tears. They keep shining like stars during stormy nights.
Teachers ,you are unique, you are special , you are not like others. Your work is the most difficult, if you fail everything else falls down with you and it’s the easiest once you get the right way to success.
Your work is the best because your mission is precious but it’s the worst when it comes to tiredness .Your work is the simplest because you deal with innocent creatures but it’s the most complicated when it comes to dealing with each learner aside.
This is teaching ,nothing like it ,it’s the core of the existence.
Many people claim that teachers are spending their time sitting on their chairs ,talking to learners ,they say that teachers have long holidays unlike other employees..etc
We dare say that we keep standing from 8 a.m till 4 p.m and not just that, we keep talking, explaining again and again ,we keep preaching, we keep listening, we keep acting ,singing,……etc
We dare say that we have no holidays. Yes ,it’s summer ,we are supposed to be on vacation but we can’t . Once we start the vacation , ideas and lesson plans keep visiting us till they bid us goodnight.
During summer ,we start thinking of the first contact with learners preparing lesson plans and designing suitable materials. In order not to lose time and efforts once we start teaching. And this is the most difficult part of the whole process.
It’s summer, it’s not a vacation , in fact ,it’s a period of preparation . Don’t waste your time now, to teach at ease once you are back to school.
Start thinking and preparing , you are at home ,take advantage of that.
