TEACHING: MISSION AND/OR JOB? If you are doing it only because you are paid for it; it’s a JOB. If you are doing it not nly for the pay but also for service; it’s a MISSION. If you quit because your boss or collea- gue criticized you; its a JOB. If you keep on teaching out of love; it’s a MISSION.
TEACHING: MISSION AND/OR JOB? If you teach because it does not interfere with your activities; it’s a JOB. If you are committed to teaching even if it means letting go of other activities ; it’s a MISSION. If you quit because no one praises or thanks you for what you do; its a JOB. If you remain teaching even though nobody recognize your efforts;it’s a MISSION.

THE ELEMENTS OF A PROFESSION “The term professional is one of the most exalted in the English language, denoting as it does, long and arduous years of preparation, a striving for excellence, a dedication to the public interest, and commitment to moral and ethical values.” -Hon. Hermogenes P. Pobre-
TEACHING AS PROFESSION •The end goal of a profession is service. • As a professional turns out to be dedicated and comitted. • You must be willing to go through a long period of preparation and a continuing professional development. • Strive for excellence, commit yourself to moral, ethical and religious values and dedicate yourself to public service.
THE ‘PWEDE NA’ MENTALITY VS. EXCELLENCE • The “striving for excellence” as another element of a profession bring us to our “pwede na” mentality, which is inimical to excellence. • The mortality rate in the LET for the past ten years is a glaring evidence that excellence is very much wanting of our teacher graduates.
TEACHING AND A LIFE OF MEANING • Spend it passionately in teaching, the most noble Profession.
TEACHING AND A LIFE OF MEANING • “Teaching may not be a lucrative position. It can- not guarantee financial security. Sometimes it means disappoitments, heartaches, and pains. But touching the hearts of people and opening the minds of children can give you joy and contenment which money could not buy. These are the moments I teach for. These are the moments I live for.” –Dr. Josette T. Biyo
