Not only his/her understanding of the subject matter but also the passion in sharing knowledge and skills must be there.

That separate the teacher from
lecturer.

Did you know that your blog site has been link to my blog since Aug last year. I am hoping you receive this information and can give me a link back form your site.

In Philippines, when the teacher reach the 5years in her career. The performance started to pause because of stagnant remuneration. Happy are those people like you but sad to say how is your student in the Phils.
