I truly believe that teaching is a gift, something that I allowed to do each day with my students. It is not a profession or job, but something I value and enjoy. Teaching offers opportunities to inspire and motivate children—to whet their appetites for inquiry and spur their curiosity.
As a teacher we have a lot of commitment. First commitment to our self, we invest time, effort, sacrifices, money just to prepare our self to learn so that so we can teach someday. I believe that the greatest preparation of a teacher is the preparation of the heart, because the heart of education is the education of the heart Teaching is sharing one life to others, sharing knowledge to the students. Teaching is said to be the mother of all profession, because it is in the hands of teacher where the attorney and even president of the Philippines are molded and prepared. Teachers must fully understand the importance of their job; teachers must consider teaching to be a lifestyle, not a mere forty hours a week job.We are here to facilitate to help the students to understand and to learn; helping the students to expand their knowledge; guide them to achieve their own dreams, to become a better person in the future.
I am driven to help students achieve their full potential, and feel rewarded when they see their students succeed, even though this is different for each student. I also find that I learn from my students daily. It could be showing me a mistake I made or sharing some personal insight of themselves. This ensures that we are growing together and learning continually.
Patience in teaching and understanding every individual sometimes is hard but doing our passion, doing our best to help them is a joy that can never be bought by money. Understanding the situation and their environment also help us to facilitate. Start listening to the students, some crave for attention, people fell loved when you give theme attention. Give love and listening is an act of love.
The miracles we see everyday, are of those who open their eyes to knowledge; miracles can happen if you let them happen.
