How to Become a Teacher in India


The image of the teacher is very important in transforming little buds into blooming flowers through their care and nourishment. Teachers accept their students as a bud and put their all efforts and life to make them successful like a flower. A good teacher is like a candle, consumes ownself to light the way for others. They make their students feel at home in school.

Whether you are a pre-school teacher or a college professor, you need to have a combination of passion, patience and love rather than the combination of fear and rudeness.

Teaching is not only seen as a career but also a passion. If you are not passionate enough about gaining and imparting education, then you lose all the potential to be a perfect teacher. A teacher needs to understand the importance of not only the academic development of students he should also motivate students.

If you think you have what it takes, you must consider the qualities of a great teacher.
