The prestige of teaching as a profession could be increased by defining very clear boundaries between what laypersons and what the actual practitioners know about the field. Which is more important in Medicine and many other Professional Courses 2

  22. 22. Teachers should over come the Challenges  Teachers who inspire realize there will always be rocks in the road ahead of us. They will be stumbling blocks or stepping stones; it all depends on how we use them. 22
  23. 23. ~Carl Jung  One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child. 23
