Teaching with Passion
It is my belief that before a person should enter the teaching profession they must first have a love of learning and be willing to share this passion with students. They need to truly enjoy working with a particular age group of children. They must possess a core set of beliefs that all children deserve respect and a chance to have a better life through the gift of learning. They must furthermore understand that is the responsibility of the teacher to be a child advocate. Teachers must have an understanding of the need to provide a learning environment where children feel safe, respected and challenged.
Teachers need encouragement for this daunting task. Below are some web sites and files with inspirational thoughts for teachers.
