The only purpose of education is to teach a student how to live life-by developing his mind and equiping him to deal with reality. The success of any nation depends on the youth who further depend upon the quality of instruction.
A teacher has not only to instruct but also to inspire the students: she has to influence the life and character of her students, and equip them with ideas and values which will enable them to enter the stream of national life as worthy citizens. Today, the teachers have to concern themselves with the total development of the child and not only with one or two aspects of education. Welcome to this extremely challenging profession of teaching! No other profession is designed to have such a transformative affect upon the lives of individuals in our society. Becoming and being an educator will likely be the most testing yet ultimately most rewarding undertaking of your life.
