Teaching is a passion and not just a profession. A school is not a school if there are no students and teachers. Perhaps, some teachers teach because they have no other option but I’m sure a lot are just being forced to teach because they can’t say no to a person. In my case, it’s my first love to teach so that I won’t mind it if I have to cancel some important appointments just to be with my students. The remuneration is only secondary although it’s also a big deal if a teacher will not be compensated since the school is earning at the expense of the teacher. If we are happy and we love what we are doing, we can always find the time just to fulfill our commitment to teach. Not all bright people can become a good teacher but it’s possible for an average or below average person to become an excellent teacher.
