Teachers are everywhere, but only a few talented people will do that professionally and in a structured way, and that will choose this over other astonishing opportunities. It could be teachers who teach small kids or even people who address the academic audiences of adults. It is not a few cases that people are even underpaid to do this job. Still, in any case, the teaching experience is memorable, and many people love it. Today, we will discuss why some people seem so dedicated to this profession and why they finally make this commitment.
Focused on the present
To become a teacher, some things have to be taken care of. The initial part is that one has to put a lot of effort into understanding the topic they will attempt to teach. The second part includes the process that is taking place before the time in class that happens at home. The teacher’s homework is to take a few hours and see how they will present the topic to the students. Organizing and learning things by heart are both parts of the process.
The next step has to do with the performance of the teacher in the class. At this point, the teachers are on their own and completely exposed to the audience’s judgment. Finally, in many cases, teachers are called to put grades on the students’ reports and do some homework after class.
The most important thing a teacher will do is the time they have to spend in the classroom. The rest of the steps are only the frame that holds this part solid. The basic characteristic of this step is that it allows the teacher to be focused on the present. Just like a play or musical concert performance, the teaching process happens at a particular time and is not repeated. Recording it is a whole different story.
The main idea is that the teacher will have to organize their time correctly and communicate with their students in a sincere and exciting relationship. When the teacher talks and a whole audience is waiting to see what they will say, the teachers cannot lose focus and let their minds wander in the past or the future. Therefore, they are concentrated and alert, which gives them a sense of love and devotion to their profession.
Plenty of respect
The second exciting pillar of this process is people’s recognition. At this point, we do not refer to what society thinks of teachers. At this moment, we talk about how the students perceive the teacher’s presence. Consider that the classroom is a closed space with one teacher and many students. In this group of people, the teacher is the one who knows the most, at least regarding the topic that is being discussed. At this place and at this moment among the particular people in this group, the teacher is the one who carries the most wisdom and the person who has not only the most to contribute to the discussion but also the one who is practically always right. The teacher is, subsequently, respected, and no one questions their answers. They are the ones who judge and are rarely judged. A sense of superiority is abundant there, and some people feel lucky for that.
Spreading the light
Last but not least, let us remember that a teacher is a person that passes their wisdom to other people. Seeing yourself spreading the light cannot be anything less than exciting. A feeling of generosity and love for the people receiving the lesson is created. Self-love is also cultivated when we do something good for society, and teachers are happy to experience that very often.
Besides, there are many opportunities for the teacher to learn as well. The students’ questions will likely make the teacher more curious about the topic and encourage them to dive deeper into the learning process. The best way to learn something is to experience it, but the second-best way is to teach it. Curiosity and knowledge dominate in this profession, which is part of the excitement.
