DEDICATED TO ALL THE TEACHERS - A write up by Atiku Shekari #Arewapublisize

From A School Principal's speech at a graduation......

He said "The Doctor wants his child to become a doctor...

the Engineer wants his child to become an engineer...

The Businessman wants his ward to become CEO...

BUT a teacher also wants his child to become one of them, as well..!!

Nobody wants to become a teacher BY CHOICE"...

Very sad but that's the truth..!!

The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life.

One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He

argued, "What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best

option in life was to become only a teacher?"

To stress his point he said to another guest;

"You're a teacher, Mrs Sharma. Be honest. What do you make?"

Teacher Mrs Sharma, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness

replied, "You want to know what I make?

(She paused for a second, then began...)

"Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.

I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor winner.

I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents

can't make them sit for 5 min. without an I- Pod, Game Cube or movie


You want to know what I make?

(She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table)

I make kids wonder.

I make them question.

I make them apologize and mean it.

I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.

I teach them how to write and then I make them write.

Keyboarding isn't everything.

I make them read, read, read.

I make them show all their work in math.

They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.

I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to

know about India while preserving their unique cultural identity.

I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were

given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life.
