Why does what I do matter?

Teaching, yea teaching doesn’t matter at all. It’s a person standing in front of the room talking about whatever they want. Grading people, giving them more work than they need for the rest of their week.

Wrong. Teaching is influencing the future. Think back to your younger years. You remember good teachers and you remember those really bad teachers. You might have hated them at the time but you are thankful for them now. Those good teachers taught you things that you have used later on in life, if it coincides with schooling or just going through life day by day. Those really bad teachers that you remember, I now take what they did in a class room and make sure I do not do the same things.

Teachers can also form a person’s life. It might be the only person a child has to depend on, or someone a child can look up to. The classroom is a place where they can make the child feel safe. Teachers are there to help and persuade children to do better, to live their lives to the fullest.

Teaching is not only used in an elementary ed. classroom. Teaching is universal. You can go across the world and teach 3rd world countries about hygiene. You can go into a business and train employees or executive members. You can do anything when being a teacher. Learning how to lead a classroom full of people who listen and respect you is a wonderful skill to have. Knowing how to grasp individuals attention and keep them engaged in the point you are trying to get across, that skill can be used in any “job” you could ever think of.

So yea, what I want to do with my life matters. It is touching as many lives as I can. I am excited to continue on my journey on becoming a teacher.

  1. Hi Katie,

    I totally agree with you about teaching is universal. I don’t think a lot of people really think about them learning all the time, even in the job they have now. If they are not learning something in there job every month or so they should try to find something else out. I am excited to teach also, it would be really cool to go to another country to teach.
    I do not wanna be one of those teachers everyone doesn’t want to attend there class.
    You wrote a very good blog!
