Teaching is a multi-task profession. It includes being a communicator, a facilitator of learning, an evaluator, a classroom manager, a counselor, a disciplinarian, a mentor, a guidance counselor, and a surrogate parent. Every teacher is expected to demonstrate a belief that all students can leam, teaches responsible citizenship and life skills, treats each student fairly, promotes safe and positive learning environment, exemplifies a good adult role model, exhibits a caring, honest, and professional attitude, recognizes the community as a partner in educating students, maintains confidentiality on critical issues that affect the secrecy of the entire educational system and abides by the policies and regulations.

With these multi task roles and expectations from a teacher, there is no doubt  that teaching is the noblest profession of all and teachers are heroes. They are heroes not

only yesterday, today, but also tomorrow. It is just but proper to honor the teachers of the world every 5th day of October for them to be happy and inspired in building tomorrow's people and in making the world a better place to live. We salute and congratulate the teachers of the world. May your tribe increase.
