Teaching is not a thing for everybody – there is hardly a person who would argue that. What we observe, however, is a sad contradiction. Teachers are not paid much, but they are required to work hard and bend their necks down under huge responsibility. On the other hand, being a teacher is rewarding like nothing else. Understanding that the product of one’s efforts is a full grown Person that has not only knowledge, but also life views, opinions and judgments is not just exciting – it’s breathtaking. Therefore, teaching is probably one of the most widely discussed areas. Primary education, special education, school and college education – all of these are its branches with their own issues and debates. Our blog is one of those who try to instruct people about what being a teacher means and what is required to become one.
