I completely agree with your point.

The one thing I really hated as student was the feeling that someone made my teacher come here and now he/she is just counting minutes till the end of lessons and even passing his/her frustration on students.

Right now, when my school time is over it does not mean I've stopped learning. The one difference is that I'm looking for teachers on my own, deciding what kind of methods and behavior help me learn and which just make me hate learning.

Recently I met a lot of people online who are not 'teachers' but do better job as teachers, without realizing it :)

Just yesterday I run into one thought which right now is one of the most important rule I value in someone that I can call a teacher:

I believe that there are a lot of people with great knowledge, geniuses who love what they are doing and progress in this area.

But even if you're so great in something, unfortunately that does not make you good teacher. Being a good teacher is completely different thing. It helps a lot if you love what you're doing as you can encourage much easier other people sharing your passion.

And one more thing - you DON'T HAVE TO BE GOOD TEACHER to be really great expert and person - it's not like being teacher is everyone's next step in career.

Being a person who has great passion and knowledge is sometimes enough. You can just find your own way to help people and share your passion, without trying to be a teacher :)


Totally agree: to be a teacher does not necessarily mean you have to be called "a teacher". If you are sharing your knowledge skillfully it is sometimes more than enough. But first you have to passionate on what you do, as you well noticed.


Excellent thoughts! Thanks so much for sharing :)
