Teachers in our lives. From pvvg swamy

TEACHERS IN OUR LIVES

 

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 a teacher?”

To stress his point he said to another guest; “You’re a teacher, Bonnie. Be honest. What do you make?”

Bonnie, 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 kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents can’t make them sit for 5 without an I Pod, Play or TV.

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 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 English 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. (Bonnie 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. What do you make Mr. CEO?

His jaw dropped, he went silent.

This is worth reading by every parent and teacher.

Even all your personal teachers like mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, coaches and your spiritual leaders/teachers.

A truly profound answer!!! 

 

Teaching is a profession that helps build a foundation for other professions.

 

If any one of you is interested to know on “Overall Development of schoolchildren”, I will be pleased to send all the information. Just ask from me.

I want to provide the education that acts as a catalyst in formal education. Personally, I could not get in my childhood, however very important in everyone’s Life in school days and afterwards.
