A teachers contribution


10 years ago I tried to convince a parent to let his daughter attend a course in a vocational school to become an aesthetician.

For this parent, they assumed the only way for a successful career was through General Education and an academic career. His daughter attended high school in order to enroll for university. Unfortunately, she failed her exams after the first year. I had a 3 hour discussion with him to convince him to let her attend a vocational school. As a teacher he took my opinions seriously and I managed to convince him.

The student finished her course in the vocational school and continued to further vocational education. After working in a beauty salon for a number of years, she is now employed as an aesthetician at a summer resort.

I believe a teachers contribution is very important regarding guidance and the professional career of young people. I feel we need to help our students follow their dreams and discover their talent, by focusing on their personality and aspirations.
