“A person who teaches...” what a limited and deficient definition.
If this is the definition that we use to describe them, how much can we demand from them?
Yes, a teacher’s job is to teach and a lot more!
The dictionary should update the definition to:
- A teacher is an encourager, an inspirer and a motivator.
- A teacher is a person that gives support, generates confidence and builds hope.
With this updated definition teachers will feel enormously proud of their jobs and the effects on the students would be awe-inspiring.
“There is no system in the world or any school in the country that is better than its teachers. Teachers are the lifeblood of the success of schools” - Sir Ken Robinson
