Teaching is an option. Sainthood is a preference. Heroism is a choice. Have you ever wondered what a true hero is like? When people say hero, they usually think of cartoon characters like Superman, Spiderman, or SpongeBob. If you mean a hero in cartoon or movies, then someone who is the strongest person around who wants to bring peace and justice. Heroes are not like real superheroes, people who could fly, who could hold a car using their forefinger, not even fighting villains for saving the world.
Then, what is a hero?
When talking about heroes, they’re the one who strengthen you, the one who are at your side whenever you’re down because they are there to lift you up. Your hero can be your mom, dad, brother, sister, a friend or it can be your teacher. Well, a teacher for me is most likely a hero because they do lots of things just to do their works. A teacher is similar to a hero for some reasons.
Noisy students, lesson plans, tons of paper works, mountains of test papers – these are all a part of a teacher’s work.
Despite the demanding situations and long hours of work, teachers of today persevere and endure, recognizing the crucial role they play in molding the minds of the future generations. As the unsung nation builders, they plant seeds of information and ensure the holistic growth of their students. They find time to manage and take care of the class; they serve as the student’s second parent. They mold the young minds to become the nation’s hope and great asset. Teachers generate interest in subjects that students often find tedious. Rousing students from their apathy and watching their curiosity grow is a giant reward for them.
