By Rudolph A. Neal: Whenever we hear the proverbial term “hero”, we often times think of someone who’s strong and powerful that comes dashing through the air at record speed racing to help someone; prevent the “bad guy” from striking and essentially, to save the world! However, I beg to differ. The aforementioned description of a hero is a gross misconception that needs to be rectified. I believe that a hero is someone who is small and powerful. A hero is someone who hardly makes a lot of noise and has the power to effect change and shape the world in which we live. A hero works late at night and all day long to ensure that the service they offer is second to none. A hero is loving and caring- they guide, mold, protect and nurture the minds (much like seeds) so that they may bloom into productive, self respectable adults. In case you’re wondering, a teacher possesses the genuine qualities of a hero.

Being a teacher is an esteemed privilege and is one of the most onerous and arduous task; yet simultaneously so noble and gratifying. However, teachers are not duly recognized and appreciated for the hard work they have done and continue to do on a daily basis. They do not receive the praises enough and the accolades that are just to honor them for the laborious task that they take on. I believe that teachers give so much and get so little and are not saluted for going the extra mile to ensure the success of each and every child. Teachers mold, guide, protect, inspire, effect change, nurture and develop students holistically and for this and more they often times go unnoticed. Teachers essentially are unsung heroes.

Therefore, as we prepare to celebrate Teacher’s Day, it is rather imperative that we take some time to salute them. I would like to say to teachers out there that you are valued and your hard work and dedication is very much appreciated. I would like to honor teachers for the work they have so consistently done and have continued to do. I would like to honor teachers at this time and let them know that they are real heroes out there. They raise and nurture these children, they guide and protect them, they mold and develop, they plant the seeds and water them, they shape the future and effect change; and last but certainly not least, they give birth to all the other professions there is thus developing the country in which we live and by extension the wider world.

So as we celebrate teacher’s day, let us join voices in unison in saluting our teachers. Let us recognize these heroes for their willingness, dedication, commitment and service that they offer. Keep on doing the phenomenal job that you have done and strive to continue to do so. To all the teachers across Belize, I salute you for having taken up such a noble and sobering profession. A great teacher of mine who I salute and look up to once said and I quote: “teaching is such a noble profession that it is only for the brave and not the faint at heart…”

Therefore, with that said, teachers all over, from near and far, you are true heroes!

Happy Teacher’s Day to you and may the good Lord continue to richly bless you, guide you and give you the strength and courage to forge forward with renewed optimism and unalterable spirits.

Happy Teacher’s Day to you, HEROES!!
