Has Anyone Ever Told You, You Were Meant to Be a Teacher ?
Remember when you used to be in class and thought the teacher was so cool and that you couldn’t wait to become a teacher yourself? Or maybe you were that student that would always help your classmates with the materials and assignments. Or you were even the teacher’s assistant and helped them out with the lessons. No matter where you fall within these categories you always knew you would be a teacher one day, and you even felt that it was your destiny.
If by some chance you don’t fall into these categories here are 4 signs you are still meant to be a teacher!
Inspiring Others Makes Your Heart Beat
Inspiring the people around you has always brought joy to your life and an extra beat in your heart. No matter if you would inspire others with your advice, the person you are, or with your actions you were loved/looked up to by everyone.
People wanted to know your opinion and they valued it. They knew that you were someone who they could always turn to no matter how small the matter was. Even so, you loved this feeling and attention.
Your Love for People
You are certainly an extroverted person and saying you’re a people person is an understatement. Whether you like being around people or just helping others around you, it brings joy and a sense of pride to your heart.
You’re also that type of person that can relate to everyone no matter what the situation is. Whether you imagine what they are going through or you’ve gone through something similar yourself, you will always find a way to show them that you understand what they are going through.
You See the Big Picture
The future excites you and you enjoy looking forward to it, and you may even plan ahead to what you’d like to see happen in 5 or 10 years from now. Maybe it’s making tenure or maybe it’s seeing your students be as successful as they can be and starting their dream professions. Whichever one it is, you’re perfect at designing short-term goals that will make a positive impact on your future and inspires students to strive for their dreams and goals.
You Want to See Others Succeed
When you see others around you succeeding it brings to your life because you know and understand how happy they will be from that point forward. You also feel that when others succeed you succeed as well. Whether it be with the advice you gave them, taught them something, or just listened to them. You felt their pains and struggles and understand how much success means to them. Because of that your success also means a lot to you.
Maybe you fall into all of these categories or maybe just one, either way, you’ve always known at heart that you’ve wanted to be a teacher. Or maybe you’re already a teacher and just wanted a bit of reassurance. Let’s inspire students, yourself, and get that teacher’s apple out. ?
