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

rental.


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.
