Teachers have a hard job. There are many reasons to become a teacher, but for me…. I believe being a teacher should be your life’s purpose. The famous quote by Mark Twain states, “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and, the day you find out why.” My three main passions in life are: helping others, writing to share/teach, and showing love. I thought of a way I could turn those three passions into purpose. I know as a teacher I will definitely help others. I will be sharing and teaching by using visual aids and text. I will show attributes of a great teacher by maintaining a balance between discipline and love. Teaching is my purpose.
My purpose statement: I will teach other’s how to have healthy relationships with society through learning. I will spread love and tolerance by being an example to everyone I meet. I will guide individuals to their path of personal development and self reflection.
I believe teaching should be about giving what we can to the generation under us to equip them with the necessary components of survival and success once they reach adulthood.
Come back tomorrow to read three concepts I want to live by in my teaching.
