Teaching is noble but teachers are not! not all but few are noble.
a good guide,with immense knowledge,insight and a guide for students thats how i define a teacher!
but nowdays students prefer to do MEDICINE OR ENGINEERING.... so basically only the low graded students who score less marks go for doing teacher training and all that! how do u expect a better teaching from them? in the near future my grand children ll not have good teacchers, so i m going to teach them :-D

Hi MA,
Good afternoon.
Of all the profession, teaching ofcourse qualifies for noblest profession, as it gives us the knowledge to reason,power to survive, the ethics to follow, life to savour, relationship to manage, distinct the good to bad and over all see through the changes of the world through our own eyes. When whole humanity depends on the said profession, there is no question about its' nobleness.

Every profession that serves the society is noble. So long a person is engaged in earning a living by offering something in return is involved in a noble profession. Except for a few professions like begging, burglary, exploitation of others weakness( black marketing, bribing etc)and such professions that involves only in taking money without giving back anything of equal value in return, all the rest are noble profession. If a teacher does not teach but only draws his fees or salary then it shows the teacher is not noble, it does not mean the profession is not noble. So long a person is giving something in return for the money he/she is getting is involved in a noble profession.

For obvious reasons, there is transformation of teaching from a mission to profession. Now teachers are in the same category of practitioners like Chartered Accountants, solicitors, doctors or Engineers who provide service at commercial rates. But, they provide the most important services after all.
