I’m sure you’ve met a teacher that had a positive impact in your life. Almost everyone can recall at least one teacher that stands out above the rest. That teacher encounter may have totally changed your outlook on life and challenged you to be a better person.
Teachers are the bedrock of society, here’s why.
TEACHERS CHALLENGE US
Teachers challenge us to learn new material and make a difference in the world. Our desire to make our teacher proud leads us into a relentless drive for success.
THEY TEACH US DISCIPLINE
As we are growing up, freewill governs our behavior once we are outside of the home. If left uncheck, we can easily fall into a pattern of boastfulness, erratic behavior and rudeness. Great teachers demand respect and discipline us when we get out of line. These lessons can have a big impact on how we interact with others later in life and this carries over into our professional life.
THEY HONE OUR ORGANIZATION SKILLS
With lessons plans, due dates, and special projects, we learn to multi-task and get better organized. This aids us as we enter college and provides even a greater impact once we enter our professional life.
TEACHERS DARE US TO DREAM
Great teachers have a way of presenting ideas and concepts that allow us to look for unique solutions. As we start seeking our own solutions, we begin to dream of other ways to attack an problem to arrive at a solution. They also teach us about other cultures, geography and travel which leads us to dream of traveling to faraway lands.
