Teaching as a career

Philippines

During my time maybe 20 years ago, teching course is always the least chosen by almost every high school graduate. Some are forced by their parents and others took the course because they have no more choices. As i analyze these days and even those days that teachers are the least paid and leat respected i finally realized that teachers must be the most respected and the highest form of profession of all time. Because there could be no doctors, engineers and architects to mention a few, if there were no teachers to teach for them on who they become today. Please feel free to comment on this...

Teaching is a noble profession.Many don't understand this,but equally there are many who understand this. Even now there are many choosing teaching profession, but they are paid low salaries.They know how to earn money and they are earning handsomely by way of starting teaching centres.A college professor residing near my house taking tution classes,charging a handsome amount per subject. What ever amount he collects he is able to provide necessary subject knowledge and that is why the profession is noble.

Yes thats true as teachers are least paid..and etc etc..! but my perspective has changed about teaching line..!! I see my lecturers and proffesors in my college...you know actually teachers has most easy kind of job..!! And not to mention teachers at college level do get paid very well..!! (if not then you can always open some institutions to help others and earn a little bit) But the most fancy fact about teaching career is they get most paid holidays....they get summer holidays..and many more..!!! I know my lecturer who has to take hardly 2 hours class of ours and then she can go home..and that too not every day she has her class about 4 times in a week else she is kind of free she is our college's faculty memebers..!! Now well in college level she may be a visiting faculty in someother colleges also but she kind of reaches home by 7:00 in evening or may be before than that!!! Now isn't that an easy luxurious well paid job..??? I find it good ..!! I am doing my BSC hns in computer sceince..!! I guess I'll be doing MCA or MSC after my graduations as post graduation and then I'll go in teaching job..!! :)

Let us remember that teaching is not only the noblest profession but "service profession". Without sounding so hypocrite, but when we enter teaching, we knew that is 1 of the least paid job. So, i think what counts now, is the happiness and fullfilment when we share and impart knowledge to our students. Also, the values that we inculcate into our dear students that will greatly affects their life.

This also holds true with my country. Fortunately, things are going to change in a good direction. Twenty years ago, people looked down upon teachers, especially for male teachers. Generally they believed the man must be incapable and had to take teacher profession. Teachers are not respected and paid least. But nowadays, More and more graduates would like to take teaching course due to its stable, constantly increased salary, respect and easy to make extra money. Now it becomes a popular profession.
