Grade 5 Quarter 2 Week 1 Daily Lesson Log
Why do teachers need to get paid more?
We have a very important role in our society. We do not only teach our students how to read and right, but we also mold them to be a better person. We always do much more than what the parents expect. Unfortunately, though, we are not getting paid enough for the work we do.
Here are some reasons why we need to be paid more. Please take time to read.
We bring work at home.
Other professions do not have to take their work home. Teachers, on the other hand, have to take loads of unfinished reports and stuff at home. They have to spend hours preparing their powerpoint lessons for the next day. They also have to spend time at home grading their pupils’ assignments, tests, and quizzes. They do not have time at school in doing all this stuff so they need to take their work at home. They could probably make more money being an hourly wage employee compare to the hours they spend on work.
We do more than teaching.
We do not just teach pupils how to read and write but we teach them how to be a good citizen of our country. They teach students how to be good adults by teaching them to persevere when things have gone wrong. Since teachers’ are said to be the 2nd parent they also teach students about what is right or wrong.
We always make an impact.
We always make an impact on students’ lives every day. Some of the students are coming back after they make jobs and businesses to thank their teachers for what they become. They always thank their teachers for being successful. Some offers for a donation to beautify the classroom as a sign of gratitude to their teachers of what they are now. Teachers inspire lives. They make a huge impact on each and every one. There’s always a reason that they need to be acknowledged for it.
We need to have competent Teachers.
Many teachers are leaving the country and chose to teach abroad to get a higher salary. Competent individuals from the universities chose not to apply to the Department of Education because they think that they will not be paid according to what they are capable to do. If we do not have people who are pursuing careers in teaching, then eventually we will not have enough teachers to educate our students.
Education is very important to each individual, hence, teachers are an important part of our society. They teach our students, inspire our students, and look after our students. If we underpay them we are not valuing them for how important they really are. A shout for salary increase should be supported to give credit to all the teachers.
