What does it mean to be a teacher? For me, my profession is an opportunity to be constantly in the world of childhood, in a world of fairy tales and fantasies. Particularly aware of the importance of the profession of the educator, when you see the children’s eyes open to meet them; eyes, greedily catching every word of mine, my gaze and gesture. Looking at these children’s eyes, you realize that you need them, that it is you who plant the shoots of future characters.
I consider the profession of a teacher to be the best for a woman. After all, the main quality of a woman is motherhood. And in a motherly way I try to surround the children with care, caress and attention. In response from children I get a new charge of positive, creative work, a lot of positive emotions.
Undoubtedly, the teacher’s work is hard – it is not easy to be a model for imitation, an adviser, a judge, a mentor. Next to me, children, children are different: daring, restless, shy and timid, “silent” and “talkers.” What can I give them? First of all – love! And I love them as they are.
I realized that we must learn to perceive the best that there is in children, helping them to see it best in themselves. I watch them and see what “raisins” are hidden while inside each. Agree, as it is important, not to leave unclaimed none of the talents: the ability to meditate, to singing or dancing, to physical exercises or communication with others.
Being a teacher in modern conditions
Our profession is necessary and gives the society of children prepared for further life, self-confident, willing to learn further. I am proud that I am involved in the formation of personality, helping parents in the adaptation of children to further life in modern society.
And it is important to remember the eternal commandment: do no harm. After all, the child’s soul is not a rocky soil, but a flower, which must be helped to open up. And, moreover, it is necessary to teach your pupils to go through difficult roads of knowledge, not to wait for ready solutions, but to seek and find knowledge themselves. That’s why our task is not just to fill the vessel with ready-made knowledge, but to instill a craving for self-knowledge.
