'Teach like you've never taught before. Leave a legacy'. said Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga. Over the years the teaching profession has lost its confidence, gone are the days when teachers would walk proud as a people. We need to get back to that place where teaching is regarded with the importance it deserves.
Teachers have to be confident in their profession, well-trained and constantly strive to improve their capabilities. Communities need to realise the value of teaching. It is the teachers in our schools who are a crucial part of moulding our future leaders.
Learners need the guidance of educators who are passionate about their purpose as teachers in a classroom. Educators, parents and learners all need to work together to get learning where it should be. Where learners are receiving the best from all stakeholders therefore encouraging them to succeed and be the best that they can be.
We call for teachers who want to empower and encourage students to break all boundaries and become competitive in the work force. Let there be more stories of teachers making a difference.
Teachers need to teach and learners need to learn, because our future as a nation depends on it!
