Dreams of becoming a Teacher

substitute teacher

Amongst the entries we have received from numerous children across the country, many of them seem to share a common dream of becoming a teacher. We are sharing two such dreams through this blog post. If you want to share your dream and win a book hamper, send in your entries for the 'Mumtaz Embroiders her Dreams' contest. You can read all the dreams sent in by kids here.

Twelve year old Soumya Jain from Delhi says :

In our country everyone has a dream. I also have a dream . My dream is to become a good human being first & also to do the best what ever I do. If we humans can become good human beings then we should be
called humans in true meaning otherwise we are close to animals.

Professionally my dream is to become a teacher, as I feel that it is a very noble job & really a job that can change the society & a teacher can produce good human beings. Schools may be called a factory for the production of young talent & good humans as the base is always formed at school for every child. Teaching always keeps you around the young children which always give a chance to think more creatively in our life. Children are very spontaneous & they react from the heart with out any manipulations & if we are close to the children we naturally hire these qualities. A teacher can really change the world as these children become the grown up man or woman tomorrow & they perform & behave in the society in a manner what they learn & grasp in the school.

Also I have a passion for the dance which I can easily fulfill while teaching. Teaching is a profession where a teacher gets a lot of respect from the students & he or she can implement different ideas in a school. A
teacher may be a free bird as fas as expressing ideas is concerned. He can be called a mentor of the society. Now a days the meaning of teacher & teaching is changing as many teachers teach just for the sake of money & many a times they do not have qualities of a teacher. They come into this profession as they could not do well in other profession & because of this they are here. This should be changed. What I feel should be that a teacher should be paid a handsome salary so that people should come willingly in this profession not after failing in other careers.

I hope that my dream will come true & I will become a exemplary teacher one day.

Eleven year old Vaitri Butola shares the same dream and says :
Every Child have a dream which he wants to be fulfilled by his hardwork , sincerity, concentration and determination so as I have. My dream is to become a good, helpful and hardworking teacher. Teaching is a service by which we can serve our future generation with good ideals, thoughts and many interesting things about life. Everyone has progressed to where they are in life because they had a teacher. A teacher is defined as someone who gives instruction and communicates skills. Our children are our future, and they need to be prepared for the future or they will not be successful in the working world. Teaching makes a difference in them, because it gives them tools to help them be successful in the future. I would like to tell you why I would like to become a special education teacher and what has led me to this decision and why I want to become a teacher. I have chosen to become a teacher because I myself am a product of someone whom I consider to be the best teacher in the world. The job of a teacher means different things to different people. For some, ateacher is simply a person who informs students about "necessary information" like math formulas, historical facts, or literary works. Yet for others, and for me, teachers are much more. They give their students not only their knowledge, but also their passion. They get involved in the lives of their students. They make their students feel good about themselves and they help the youth realize and fulfill their dreams. I have finally discovered what I am truly passionate about and I am pursuing this passion by continuing my education so that I am able to fulfill my goal of being a special education teacher. My goal is to be the best teacher any student has had and will have throughout his/her schooling. I want to help every student learn; no matter how long it takes, and even if it means staying after school to help any student who needs help. I hope to do this by being firm in classroom management but by also being understanding of each and every student.
