Teachers = History Makers!

Happy new week, everyone! I hope that it is amazing!

Having spent the last week doing teacher’s training seminars for teachers across Hyderabad, I’ve realized just how much we undervalue teachers. We don’t think of them in the same terms that we think of doctors or CEOs. We tend to place the teaching profession on a rather low rung on the social career ladder.

But what we don’t realize is that everyone who has gone on to fill the more vaunted positions on that ladder was once a student in a teacher’s classroom. Every hero that has graced our time was created, molded, and influenced by a teacher.

When we see it in that way, we see that the teaching profession is one of the greatest in the world! If you want to make history, teach the history-makers!

Someone sent me this comic strip after one of the seminars and I would like to share it with all of you. As it says, “What does a teacher make?–A difference!”
