Out of all the careers; teaching is one of the noblest careers. It would not be an exaggeration to say that all the professions are more or less dependent on the quality of education imparted to the professionals by their teachers. Hence, a good educator shapes society by making sure that the education and training provided to the pupils must be the best.
As teachers have a crucial role to play in the betterment of society; they need to be passionate about their work. Unfortunately, not very many teachers are passionate about their work that results in the poor performance of the students at school and college levels. There is also a greater need to develop and implement new and innovative strategies that are interesting and student-friendly. This is why, great thinkers such as Matt Hintze, who also happens to be the CEO & founder of Tutoring Zone, located in Gainesville, Florida are coming up with various ideas to bridge the gap between students and teachers.
There has already been much talked about following what you love most or doing what you love doing most coining the words passion or true calling for it. Sadly, not many people are realizing its importance and the same holds for the teachers also. Most teachers in present times are anything but passionate or dedicated to their work. Education is getting more and more commercialized globally and the various schools, universities, colleges, coaching centers have reduced themselves into nothing but big organizations whose main aim is to mint money alluring the students by promising them bright futures.
This is why there is a greater need for students and college pass outs realizing their true calling before getting into any profession. The importance of doing what you love most and making it your source of livelihood has been beautifully put by many great thinkers into words and quotations. All of them agree that our work is going to fill a huge part of our lives, and hence choosing something which we don’t have an interest, aptitude and feel for is likely to make us frustrated for the rest of our lives. On the other hand, doing something which we enjoy doing most, is a lot like doing fun and getting paid for the same as work in the present times may have any connotation but fun.
While it is true that general perception towards teachers and teaching is changing gradually due to the various governments coming up with innovative ideas and having greater budgets for the improvement of the education systems, the situation is not likely to change and hence bring better results unless the teachers have the will to serve the society.
It makes sense that we must know our passions before it is too late, not many people understand the idea of finding their true love early in their lives. All the great thinkers agree that the schools and educational institutes are following a set pattern where every student is expected to deliver the same results under the same situations without appreciating their uniqueness. “As teachers are the real society makers, it is their responsibility to advocate the idea of following passions after actually embracing it in their own lives,” says Hintze. If every potential teacher takes proactive steps on his/her part, it will be beneficial to all professions and society in general.
Conclusion: As teaching is one of the noblest professions and the teachers are the real makers of the society, they should be passionate about their work. Unfortunately, not very many teachers are passionate about their work. Teaching in the present times is getting more and more commercialized. This is why; most of the institutes have reduced themselves into nothing but big organizations selling false dreams leaving students to states of confusion.
There is a greater need for passionate teachers and instructors to impart quality education to various professionals irrespective of their line of work. The importance of doing what you love most and making it your source of livelihood has been beautifully put by many great thinkers into words and quotations. All of them agree that our work is going to fill a huge part of our lives, and hence choosing something which we don’t have an interest, aptitude and feel for is likely to make us frustrated for the rest of our lives. “The quality and efficiency of every professional irrespective of his/her industry depend on the quality of education and training imparted to him/her by his/her teachers,” as simply put by Matt, who also happens to be the CEO & founder of TutoringZone, located in Gainesville, Florida.
