For me, there is no job in the world like being a teacher. I don’t think that if I owned a large business with scores of employees that I would be as happy as I am in front of a classroom of beautiful, smiling faces, eager to learn and listen to what I have to teach them.
Not everyone feels the same way about the profession, but their ability to teach has a lot to do with their point of view. The art of teaching, like the art of ruling, comes naturally to some people. I take pleasure in inspiring a love of language, literature and learning in students. And I enjoy giving assignments which I am sure my students will be able to “tackle”, based on what I’ve already taught them. I hate giving assignments which “stresses” the students out.
I regularly give back papers to my students with “100%” scores on it. That is a norm when I teach. Passing a test encourages and inspires students; failing it discourages and disgruntles. No matter how easy the test may be considered, the test should be fully within the students’ capabilities. Remember, there is no such thing as bad student, but there is such a thing as a great teacher
