Teaching can be a vocation. There is a story about a teacher who was out of job. She teach out of school youth to read and write. She died abandoned. I love to teach even if I am not a teacher. New comers in the job, even young children I teach them how to pray. I love to transfer my knowledge to other people.

Yes I do. Rather, I believe that teaching kids is good to enhance or recall your knowledge.

There are so many things you can teach someone even though you don't have a certificate. I believe that all people need a mentor, even some older ones. The abandoned teacher probably had a lot of satisfaction from what she taught the out of schoolers. There are programs in which you can sign up to be a mentor.

Yes, particularly school children. I am associated with many schools in Bangalore city to give lectures on environment, usefulness of hobbies as a part of my social work and I enjoy doing it, because the young people can be moulded the way they should not not the way they are now.

It depends if the students are willing to listen to me. If they are willing to listen to me, than I will happily teach them everything I know. Kids that will listen are usually elementary kids. Right? I like to teach little kids because they are so cute and charming. But, not all of them are always like that! So I will only teach if they would listen. Thats all there is to it...

If i am not a teacher then i have no such knowledge about student's activities .And part time teacher means part time jobs .So i can not do that without being the teacher .I have to be in that profession .

I like to teach too, although I am not a school teacher nor do I wish to be. I tutored Writing for many years and to me that is just like teaching because even though people know how to write I teach them how to write well or better than they used to. Not only have a considered myself a teacher, but I also consider myself a lifelong student because I am constantly learning new things from people I encounter each day, whether they are "teachers" or not.
