Who is a teacher?

 
 
Who is a teacher??

This is a very good one !

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

He said  "Doctor wants his child to become a doctor.........
    Engineer wants his child to become engineer......
    Businessman wants his ward to become CEO.....
    BUT a teacher also wants his child to become one of them..!!!!
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 a teacher?"


To stress his point he said to another guest;
"You're a teacher, Bonnie.  Be honest. What do you make?"

Teacher Bonnie, 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 English 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

( Bonnie paused one last time and then continued.)

Then, when people try to judge me by what I
make, with me knowing money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant. You want to know what I make?

I
MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN ALL YOUR LIVES, EDUCATING KIDS AND PREPARING THEM TO BECOME CEO's, AND DOCTORS AND ENGINEERS.......... 
 

What do you
make Mr. CEO?

His jaw dropped; he went silent.


THIS IS WORTH SENDING TO EVERY PERSON YOU KNOW. Even all personal teachers like mother, father, brother, sister, coach and spiritual leader/teacher
