A teacher mentors a child or teenager and gives them knowledge. A sports player plays a game in which they are good at and love to do. So why does a sports player live a dream life millions of dollars a year while a teacher is stuck living the middle class life. A teacher gives a student the gift of knowledge, teaching them day by day helping the student almost all the time. Giving the student the choice to do something great with their life. Whether or not the student decides to do something with this chance is up to them.
On the other hand more sports player have little or no interaction with their fans. The most interaction some sports players have with their younger fans is through charity events, or by being paid to sign autographs. So why are sports players so much more glorified than teachers. The majority of teachers get paid a middle class salary, live a middle class life and harldy ever get looked at as major influences to kids; however, just because a sports player plays a game like no other they could be famous, a millionaire, and looked at as a hero to people across the country or even worldwide.
Even when off the field that phenomenal sports player might never do a thing for their fans they are hardly ever looked at negatively for not paying attention to their fans. A teachers job is to pay attention to each and everyone of their students they deal with students day by day and year by year compared to the sports player of having a ten year at most length career. Is it fair that two people born with a gift, one has the gift to play a game like no one else and the other has a gift of teaching.
Granted that some aports players can be good role models for their fans and making an adloesence believe in themselves that they can do something great in their life that they never thought possible. But a teacher can show a student that they can also do things they never thought possible. A teacher has the ability to change lives of many students. They should be given more gratitude for doing what they do and for dealing with the stereotypes and disapproval of the students lives they’re trying to change.
Even though a teacher is their for the student to learn and have the chance to endure a knowledgeable life they are still reprimanded for doing so. It is agreeable by most that kids going threw schooling never likes it, and don’t look st their teacher as a role model or someone they glorify like they do an athlete. Granted these athlete figures are more glorified by the males rather then the teachers.
