DO YOU CONSIDER TEACHING AS A VOCATION?
The term vocation is usually means that there is a strong inclination to participate in that job. Some people may say that it is even more than that. They would say that it is “meant to be”. It would be a calling, something that they had to do.
In my perspective, a teacher usually feels that they have a strong desire to impact people’s lives. That is exactly what a teacher does. Sounds like teaching as a vocation to me.
Let’s look at a definition of a teacher from Wikipedia.
"A teacher is a person who helps students to acquire knowledge, competence or virtue.”
A teaching career may be on your mind as you evaluate switching careers. One of the first things to do is to determine if you are qualified or identify what it takes to become qualified.
In the United States and in most countries certain professional qualifications or credentials are required to become a teacher. Certain criteria must be met in order to be authorized to teach at various grade levels.
It is important to state again that teachers have such an impact on the lives of their students. That is why so many teachers feel teaching as a vocation, not just a job. They enjoy it so and reap the rewards and satisfaction of the process.
As a result of the COVIS-19 pandemic in 2020, more teachers have adapted and began virtual teaching. With the right equipment and a plan to engage students, teachers have met the challenge. Learning continues even without being in the same physical location.
Adapt we will!
Succeed we will!
