Teacher : A Nation Builder
“Teaching is the one profession that creates all other professions.”
The countdown for the much awaited day- the ‘Teachers’ Day’ for students and teachers has begun. As the days are approaching, students are excited about the preparations for the day.
A teacher is an ideal personality for students who guide them to follow a right path.
The teacher can be rightly called a nation builder. Teachers through their perseverance love and sacrifices have shown us the right path in which great men have built our nation. It is our dear teachers who mould our character, our personality and show us the right direction
Which leads us to our final destination.
Teachers inspire their students to aspire for greater things, and as school is a socialization agent teachers play an important role in nation building. Teachers ought to be highly respected members of the society as they shape the character of their students. While everyone can be trained it is not all people who gain knowledge and are willing to learn. To facilitate knowledge acquisition the input of the teachers is required, and they are well placed to motivate the learners to work hard work, gain knowledge and be successful. Regardless of whether learners are slow or fast, teachers instill in them the importance of working hard in what they are good at and being people of high integrity.
Making the children ready for a challenging life – it starts at a very early age, the teachers take the kids away from their parents for a few hours and teach them in a total different environment. They try and make the environment as friendly as possible, but it is still different from the environment at home. Knowingly or unknowingly, teachers prepare the kids for unknown environment which they might have to face in their lives.
A teacher plays different role in his life for the future of his pupils like:
A friend, philosopher and guide
“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”
Today we can see that teachers have moved on from the basic image of a strict teacher, they have become much more for their students. They provide a friendly shoulder to cry on when the kid is in a problem, they tell about the philosophies of life so that the child could take lessons and apply to his/her own life and they guide the child to follow the right path. The teachers have the courage to push the kid to do what they want to, even if it has never been done before.
No other job makes a person worried if a child’s parent is divorced, a drunk or a wife abuser. Teachers are the ones who have full knowledge of the child’s life, the environment back home, his mindset and his capabilities. They always try and strike a balance between all of these things and make sure that the kid’s future doesn’t get affected in a bad way.
A nation comprises of the children way more than adults. The children are the future and the teachers are the ones who are getting them ready for their task. With optimum education, wisdom, exposure and resources, the teachers are building the nation for tomorrow brick by brick and the foundation is so solid that the nation will only grow upwards.
Teaching as a profession is probably the most challenging because it combines all the other professions in order to help a child grow. One has to have good communication skills, managerial skills, reading and writing skills, storytelling skills, everything. The teachers have selflessly and courageously chosen the path where they will always be working for the mankind and for its good. Not everybody has the heart to do it. The leaders of today are getting the leaders of tomorrow ready.
