Teaching is not a job, it is a passion. In its broadest sense, teaching can be defined as a process that facilitates learning. Similar to medicine and law, teaching was once regarded as a profession. A profession is broadly defined as an occupation, practice or vocation that requires mastery of a complex set of knowledge and skills through formal education and/or practical experience. Teaching is the specialised application of knowledge, skills and attributes in order to provide a unique service to meet the educational needs of individuals and society. Being a professional inherently also implies that a person chooses teaching not just as a mere job or a means to earn a living, but because he or she has the opportunity to make a difference to society and to fulfill a need.
