They provide an opportunity to answer questions and define roles,

A truly prepared teacher is someone who can make a difference in
child’s life, to ignite curiosity and growth to their students. It is the most
rewarding part of teaching. But as much as teaching can be rewarding, it can
also be frustrating and stressful when dealing with unmotivated students, large
classes, and heavy workloads. Most frustrating one, teachers will sometimes
have to deal with unruly behavior and violence from students. These are all part
of teaching. Teaching is not simply “teaching”. You must ensure that your
students are really learning from you, how they assimilate the knowledge, imbibe
the values, and foster the skills must be monitor by you. You can only perform all
these if you exhibit a sense of preparedness in teaching.
Going back to the question, am I really prepared to teach? I can
say “Yes I am”. This is through the help of the people behind me especially my
teachers who continuously motivate me to strive, to do my best, to make the
most out of my teaching. Although, I still have something to learn in the
field of teaching.
