        Teaching is a gift, a talent, a calling.

        There are those who can teach in every profession, but far more who can't. A person who can teach will teach and make others around them better. And they will stand out. Simply put, it is in their nature.

        In the field of education I suppose almost everyone who pursues teaching believes that they have what it takes. I  believe that one factor in the high attrition rate among young teachers is that many find out that they do not have the gift, or talent, or calling, without which teaching would be unfulfilled and closer, I expect, to discouraging.
