“The one exclusive sign of thorough knowledge is the power of teaching”, like Aristotle said, teaching is much more than just the transference of information from an educated mind to that of an uneducated mind, but it revolves around these two components: love for education and passion for teaching. My mission is to ensure that learners feel empowered, loved and to teach them that they too have a social role in a society that is ever changing and as I reflect, I notice that I cannot but state that I have a passion for teaching. The “uneducated” mind in essence does not exist to me because no mind is a “blank slate” (tabula rasa) since each and every human being can bring something to the education table. Moreover I believe in the fact that, even though I am still studying to become a teacher, learners can learn from the teacher but that the teacher should also learn from the learners. Learning and teaching goes hand in hand and therefore it is of vital importance for me to ensure that as humans we learn from each other. I am inspired by young minds and therefore I aspire to become a socially productive teacher that not only focuses on teaching but on never ending learning as well.
