NEVER TELL A TEACHER
Teaching is probably one job that the world takes for granted. Let me tell you it is one of the most difficult and thankless job that exists on this planet. For some reason, people keep throwing opinions about our jobs at us without really knowing the truth. Chalk, duster, notes and bam! our job is easy! You are highly mistaken and in for a shock here. If you have ever said any f these things to a teacher; you will know why it’s wrong today. Here are seven things you must NEVER EVER tell a teacher.
1YOUR JOB IS EASY
Yes, very easy. Listen, why don’t to try surviving in a room with at least 60 moody kids for five minutes and then meet me? I’ll be here.
2NO WORK PRESSURES FOR TEACHERS
Yeah, absolutely none! Who says I need to finish the syllabus before the term ends? I don’t need to set a question paper for the exams. I don’t need to help kids prepare an act for the annual day so that their parents are happy. Nope, nothing! I am a free bird.
3TEACHERS GET SO MANY HOLIDAYS
Agreed we do. But, we are usually correcting papers and preparing your kid’s result in the vacations. And don’t you think that because we have lesser working days as compared to other jobs; we have an added pressure to finish what we have to within a shorter period of time? While most people can do overtime, how long do you think kids will be ready to stay back after school so that we can finish the syllabus?
4TEACHERS ARE DONE WITH THEIR DAY SO SOON
Hello! Who said that? Once we are home we have test books to correct, have a look at innumerable projects, give marks for internals and if none of these are there, we still need to prepare for next day’s class. Talk about bringing work home and we are it!
5YOU DON’T HAVE CRAZY BOSS PROBLEMS
Really! Have you met some of these school principals? I am not saying all are bad, but some are really nasty and prickly. Some are obsessed with events, some only studies, some are never around and some never care a damn! It’s a buffet dude!
6NO PROMOTION SYSTEM SO NO STRESS
Okay, just so you know. From pre-school to a primary teacher, from primary to high school, from a high school teacher to higher secondary one, promotions! You want college? Lecturer, assistant professor, associate professor, professor, HOD; wow! Promotions, again!
7DO YOU PARTY AND ALL?
Why does everyone assume that teachers don’t party and don’t have a life? Just because we teach and are surrounded by books, doesn’t mean we don’t have a life or a hobby outside of school. Stop looking at us like we are some saints who can’t or shouldn’t do certain things.
Every teacher out there; *hats off*. We know how difficult it is!
