Anyone Who Considers Teaching As A Stepping Stone Shouldn’t Be A Teacher At All In The First Place
Anyone who considers teaching as a stepping stone shouldn’t be a teacher at all in the first place. My brother, you won’t enjoy the work.
Gone were the days where government forces people to become teachers. The situation is not the same anymore. A lot of graduates are even running into depression because they couldn’t get employment.
Very soon, recruitment would be open, just monitor the number of people who would apply. That should tell you how attractive the profession has become. If you have been employed, consider yourself lucky and blessed.
If a child in your class is not inspired to become a teacher, find out why? Maybe there’s something you are not doing well that you need to work on.
Anyone who enters teaching to make money is at the wrong place. That’s not to say teachers are poor or not properly remunerated. What it means is that, the chop doesn’t present you the opportunity to use dubious means to amass wealth.
Teaching is not just a job but a calling. If the calling meets proper training, you would love the job, the children would love you and your teaching and the success of your learners would make you satisfied.
If you are not properly trained and you also don’t have the passion, you learners would not ejoy your teaching, they hate you. Because they hat leave you, you also hate them and because you hate them, they hate you more and because they hate you more, you hate them more and more and more.
A Christian would say, David said “I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the house of the Lord ” but the would say, ” I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the classroom and impart knowledge into the next generation”
If you find yourself always complaining whenever any duty regarding your teaching calls on you, you feel doing something else at that time would be more beneficial, then, resign and go and concentrate on that thing rather because thats where your passion lies.
There’s no time for anything, you make time for things. I’m still your servant and colleague Hon. Jery Akporhor.
