sense of commitment
I believe that I am a co-worker with God, in the divine task of molding and forming the young and
growing minds entrusted to my care
I believe that just as a lamp diffuses light, dispelling the surrounding darkness, so I too as a teacher am meant to diffuse understanding and knowledge, dispelling the darkness of ignorance and doubt
I believe that as a teacher preparing children for the 21st century, I must \u201cdare to be different\u201d in my methodology and approach, challenging their intelligence, stimulating their curiosity, exciting their imagination, and inculcating in them sound values.
I believe that as a teacher I possess a tremendous power to make a child\u2019s life miserable or joyful. I can humiliate or humour, or hurt or heal, and in all situations, it is my response that de- cides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a child humanized or dehumanized. I believe that although teaching may not hold out the promise of increasing monetary gain to the same extent as other professions, its greatest reward is in the appreciation and affection of one\u2019s students and in the challenge that each new day brings something that no money can buy.
A man who owned a house along the river stood on the roof of his house as water had en- gulfed the rest of it. Water levels were slowly rising. A rescue boat came to save the man from his house. The boat approached and the rescuers told the man another levy was about to break and the water would move over his house, sweeping him away to his drowning death. The man told the rescuers he did not need help because he believed in God and that God would save him. Twenty minutes later, the rescuers returned, trying to help the man escape. Once again, the man waved off the rescuers saying that God would save him. Ten minutes afterwards, the rescuers returned again, saying it would be the last time they could return because the levy was about to break. They asked him one last time to get on the rescue boat. He said once again that he believes in God and God would save him from the levy even if it should break. A few minutes after the rescuers left, the levy broke and the rushing waters engulfed the house, carrying away the man to his drowning death.
When the man reached the Heavens, he stood at the gates to enter. He told the men at the gates that he wanted to see God. When he saw God, he asked, "What happened? I thought you were going to save me? Why didn't you save me?" God replied, "I did try to save you. I sent the boat three times.".
