There is an old quote that rightfully says “A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others.” With a passion for teaching, a strong work ethic, and a deep understanding of the process of learning, teachers strive to offer a great learning experience to their students. This means a high degree of time spent planning lessons and being ready throughout the school year. A teacher’s life is busy with several activities including planning instruction, keeping records for the students while managing their conduct, presenting subject material, assessing learning and simultaneously meeting their own professional obligations.
