Let's be proud, we are Teachers

From A School Principal's speech at a graduation......
He said "The Doctor wants his child to become a doctor.........
the Engineer wants his child to become an engineer......
The Businessman wants his ward to become CEO.....
BUT a teacher also wants his child to become one of them, as well..!!!!
Nobody wants to become a teacher BY CHOICE" ....Very sad but that's the truth.....!!!
The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life.
One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He argued, "What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become only a teacher?"
To stress his point he said to another guest;
"You're a teacher, Mrs Sharma. Be honest. What do you make?"
Teacher Mrs Sharma, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, "You want to know what I make?
(She paused for a second, then began...)
"Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.
I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor winner.
I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents can't make them sit for 5 min. without an I- Pod, Game Cube or movie rental.
You want to know what I make?
(She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table)
I make kids wonder.
I make them question.
I make them apologize and mean it.
I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.
I teach them how to write and then I make them write.
Keyboarding isn't everything.
I make them read, read, read.
I make them show all their work in math.
They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.
I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know about India while preserving their unique cultural identity.
I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.
Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they
were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life.
(Mrs Sharma paused one last time and then continued.)
Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant. You want to know what I make.
I MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN ALL YOUR LIVES, EDUCATING KIDS AND PREPARING THEM TO BECOME CEO's, AND DOCTORS AND ENGINEERS..........
To Teach is to Touch a life forever.

Thank you so much ma'am for wonderful lines. I would like to share my experience on the occasion of Teacher's day.Year 2006, I started my career as a pre-primary teacher .My teaching career’s first year students parent every year SMS me best wishes on the occasion of teachers day. It’s a biggest achievement for me as they still remember me. It’s really a proud moment for me being a teacher. I am fortunate that in my teaching career I met with some challenging students who needed special support and today I can proudly say that I played an important role in changing and made difference in their life by case study. Today I am here, only because of them. My experienced taught me many things. I always wish to be a part of pre-primary education only.

Thank you ma`am, wonderful experience which is fact in society shared with us. We are feeling very happy when we are asking first time to kids what they want to become....always children replying want to become a teacher and we are clapping for the children but slowly slowly when child is becoming younger we are only changing the views of child and setting other goals for them which is the fact and totally wrong, but positively I am thinking that one day will be come when everyone will get understand and except who can bring the change in society. I feel very proud to become a teacher by career by dreaming........ it was my dream to become a teacher,genuinely and feel proud to born in teachers family.

The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to next plateau ,sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth.Even today on Guru purnima I meet my teachers, touch their feet and take blessing from them.Two years back I lost one of my Teachers ,who taught me Human Resource Management. When I visited him he was on his death bed.I have tried to controlled my tears and touched his feet.He could not speak as he was suffering from paralysis,but in returned his eyes were full of tears.He could recognized me .I have received my blessings !.After two days he passed away.

Indeed a wonderful article. I am truly delighted by this article Ma'am. As teachers we should always be proud of being in education systems.
Teachers are the ones who make engineers, doctors, CEO's.Its not every time about money but also but the inner satisfaction. A teacher is always able to have a peaceful sleep at night because she knows she has done a productive work in day i.e teaching young minds.
"Proud to be a Teacher" who can make difference in society.
