Who is a Teacher?

Who is a teacher??
This is a very good one !
very moving !
From a School Principal's speech at a graduation...

He said  "Doctor wants his child to become a doctor.........
Engineer wants his child to become engineer......
Businessman wants his ward to become CEO.....
BUT a teacher also wants his child to become one of them..!!!! 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 a teacher?"

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

Teacher 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 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 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 IN ALL YOUR LIVES,EDUCATING KIDS AND PREPARING THEM TO BECOME CEO's ,AND DOCTORS AND ENGINEERS..........

What do you make Mr. CEO?

His jaw dropped; he went silent.


Dear Teacher, Thanks for making us what we are today. 
Happy Teachers Day !!!

  2. Very glad to read this post on this teachers' day. We the teacher fraternity do not understand our strength because we rate ourselves on the basis of pay package only. instead we should assess the way we bring a smile of satisfaction and victory on the lips of small kids, the way we make parents proud of their children. We are the invisible force behind the unity among the students who come from various social and economic backgrounds. We have a very responsible duty to guide many generations and give the light of knowledge to many lives.
    On this day I proudly declare that as a teacher in a tribal welfare school, I find immense satisfaction and bliss in teaching my poor students. I realize that God has given me an opportunity to teach His most lovable people.
    Let's all rejoice that we are the noblest persons in this world.
