It is precisely because of these complexities that teaching is so rewarding. It is anything but mechanical – it is a unique, very personal activity which brings you closer to people; it requires a rich dose of humanity but it also allows for the bonding with learners which all teachers crave for, and appreciate when achieved.
As a Faculty, we help our students develop into effective practitioners and nurture in them the love of teaching. Our role goes beyond the teaching of educational theory or curriculum planning. We want teachers in our schools who understand where their responsibilities lie, and rise to the occasion in an effective and professional manner.
We are striving to develop teachers who are also critical in their approach to education, activists in their communities and vocal in the face of injustice. It is thus important to thank all teachers who are good exemplars of this mission, and to celebrate the act of teaching which served to change so many lives for the better.
