In this article, the author relates some of the bitter realizations he encountered during his student-teaching years when he realized that not all teachers were willing to help novice teachers. Some of them seemed to believe that teaching is as instinctive to a teacher as flight is to a bird. Despite these obstacles, the author states that he somehow became a teacher, and after five years, feels that he is a good one. He explains that there are already too few teachers nowadays, and mistreating student teachers and novice teachers will only drive away men and women who could have done something meaningful with their lives. To encourage more people to embrace teaching, he provides several suggestions for anyone who works with student-teachers.
