The Sun: Salute to teachers

This is my most recent one, giving a shout-out to teachers everywhere!

Teaching, like nursing or other forms of caregiving, is a vocation. People don’t say “I want to teach” because of the buckets of cash they will take home every month. Teachers, at least the good ones, are called to teach.

When they are called to teach, at least the majority of those who go under them, will learn. Because of their passion and calling.

Teachers are integral to society. Often you would read about a great headmaster or headmistress’ passing, and how a whole community had grieved.

That wouldn’t happen if a banker or a social media consultant passed on. Teachers are transformational.
