Quotes for Teacher 3

If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher's job.  ~Donald D. Quinn

A lot of teacher might agree on this quote. Personally, a lot of people would not understand other’s job as well. It always looks like the pasture is always greener on the other side. Many that I used to know felt that well anyone can be a teacher, they don’t need special training. All a teacher do is getting in the class and open the textbook, copying notes and give some questions for student to complete. I would not say that other job is easier too. Every job has a share of its problem.

However, my roommate’s sister used to complain how tough is it to make her children to sit quietly and do anything nice on five minutes. While my roommate actually answer her that, why the parents cannot imagine how tough is it for the teacher to handle more than 30 children’s in a single room and making them learn within 5 hours of schooling time. How a wonderful a teacher can be, when they can make the students do so when the parent can’t. Yet, teachers are being complained all the time for something related as such.
