Teaching: The Noblest Profession in the World
I believe that teaching is the most important profession in the world. How else can we continue to develop in such a technical world, or in any other way, for that matter? Without the transfer of knowledge to young minds, we will stagnate and wither as a world. Teaching is hope for better, more successful features. Learning is hope for becoming better individuals, for gaining intelligence, and for implementing practical experiences in our future.
Since our parents always tell us that we should plan for our futures and work to realize those goals, the teaching profession should “practice what it preaches” by helping young people to reach those goals.
As we know, teaching is a very important activity on which the base of any nation and culture is established. The word ‘teaching’ means the work of a teacher to provide knowledge and guidance. It is one of the oldest and noblest services to the society in any culture.
Teaching not only shows the right path that the students should follow but also prepares the human resource for the further development of the nation. It has the potential to have a great impact in the moulding of the next generation. That is why education should be valued by social institutions like government, the family and civil society.
For me, teaching is the noblest among all the professions since all professionals underwent education with a teacher. It’s also a process to prepare the next generation of skilled professionals and workers like politician, doctors, policemen, engineers, educators, legislators and good citizens.
Another important thing about the profession of teaching is that it enlightens both sides of the teacher as well as the student. In this noble profession not only, the students learn but the teacher also learns the lessons of life from the innocent students also. So, it is beneficial to both of the sides.
Wise man rightly said, “Those who educate the children are more to be honoured than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.” So, teaching is a profession that provides an art of living. It is not only a duty. It is not a profession but a noble service to the world to create a more beautiful and peaceful world.
Last but not least, I would like to say here that, “A good education can change anyone, but a good teacher can change everything!”.
