Teaching – An Honorable Profession

“Those who educate children well are more to be honored than parents, for these only gave life,
those the art of living well.” Aristotle
It won’t be wrong to say that the knowledge, values, manners that you learn while growing up stays with you for the rest of your life. How we have turned out as an individual and what we are making of our life can be traced back to stuff taught by our parents and teachers. These are people, who with their actions, words, knowledge and experience of the world, has shaped us.

Though, parents do have influence over how their wards would turn out as they grow up. Yet, it’s a widely acknowledged that no one influences children’s mind the way their school teachers do. As children spend most of their time in playschool/school, teachers have more chance of influencing and shaping young minds of children than parents.
