I am hoping that some of you can give me an insight of this question that popped up in another teacher's site. Are all the teachers in this country straight A students?If a person has a passion for teaching and had a good knowledge on the subject matter that they want to teach-will that stop him or her to become a teacher because he/she wasn't a stright A student? Ofcourse inorder to be a teacher, you will also have to pass the licensing test-which itself will tell if you have the knowledge and capacity to teach. Doesn't that itself say-if you are capable of teaching? I do believe that getting great grades is a wonderful thing and you can be what ever you want. I have seen so many average students in my life, who have done so wonderful in their field even though they were average students. I maybe wrong. But I am very baffled by the fact that how one is judged by his or her grade to become something they have passion for.
