Why Teachers Are The Cornerstone Of An Ideal Society?

Long time back an incumbent President of India narrated an incident in his Republic Day speech. It was an incident when he was in Nagaland on an official trip where he was talking to a group of students and teachers as well as parents. It was there that a student of 10th std rose and asked him that, “Sir, can we remove corruption from the country and take it towards development?” when our president Dr Kalam asked his parents and teachers if they could answer it they embarrassingly said that “Sir, don’t pay heed to his question he must not have asked you this.” But the president answered that any law cannot conquer it but then there are 3 people who can make a difference they are –Mother, Father and a Primary Teacher. Every parent works to get the best opportunities for their child but it is the teacher who works tirelessly in a class to bring the best out of each of her student.  I take pride in the fact that I am part of the tribe of such primary teachers.

I choose to be a teacher not for a good salary or easy life but to touch lives and hearts and souls. A teacher continues to live in the memories of her students long after the student and teacher cease to be in contact directly. A child’s personality, character and values reflect the kindness once showered on them by their primary teachers. Though for a teacher the challenge is to keep herself motivated to continue on the path. Besides, she constantly needs to reinvent herself with every child as no two children are same. Nevertheless, the immense joy and pride that I am building a kind and happy human is what keeps me going despite all odds.

Like the adage goes with this power comes the responsibility. At times I feel inexplicably responsible for my students.

I hope to continue on this journey as a teacher and do justice to the lives of students.
