Teaching - Profession or Vocation?

Teaching is often reffered to as a noble profession. Noble in the sense that as teachers or educators, we lead by example especially in regards to the common society values we believe in.
Little do our communities know, that teaching is also a vocation. The most satisfying thing in this world is to see a student understand the concepts taught…that can only be felt by teachers who have a passion for what they do.

Teaching is both a profession and a vocation or a mission. Every teacher has its own distinctive mission, dedication, or objective that need to accomplish.

@anasaravudi I agree with you that teaching is a noble profession. Long periods of preparation and professional development is required by teachers. They end up dedicating their lives for their students and in this process it becomes a vocation for them.
