Teaching is the process of imparting knowledge or skills to others and a person who does this job is called a teacher. Teaching involves the specialized application of knowledge, skills and attributes designed to provide unique service to meet the educational needs of the individual and of society. The choice of learning activities whereby the goals of education are realized in the school is the responsibility of the teaching profession.
Considered to be more than a profession, teachers are regarded as the strongest pillar of the society. It is teachers who get us to achieve the goals we aspire for! A teacher is like a potter who delicately shapes our impressionable minds and moulds it into a vessel that defines our perception and ambitions. Teachers have always been respected in all societies. In India, we have a special place for teachers.
Often, people choose to become teachers without any insight into the challenges involved and the aptitude needed for the job. The two top qualities seem to be: patience and enthusiasm, and the ability to strike the right balance between the two.
Apart from educational qualifications and a strong command in one's subject, a set of soft skills is required to be an effective teacher. Prominent among them are organization and clarity with an analytical bent of mind. One should have a high EQ as empathy and care is something that will be vital to deal with kids coming from all kinds of backgrounds, some disruptive too.
An aura of self-confidence, enthusiasm towards learning new things every day and dynamism would give an edge, otherwise this job will just like any other, and boredom could start slipping in.
