Teachers are dedicated professionals who have a lasting impact on students. Becoming a teacher will allow you to leverage your strengths and passion as a leader in the education field. If you are looking to make a positive difference in the lives of young people, you may want to consider this rewarding profession. Each day you will exercise your creativity, patience and communication skills as you present engaging lessons. As a mentor and role model, students will be inspired by your commitment to helping them develop their unique talents and intellect.

Here are five roles that a teacher often has to fill in order to be the best educator they can be.

1. Resource

One of the top roles a teacher must fill is that of a resource specialists. There will be many people who will come to the teacher seeking information. Even if the person is only seeking a source of information, the teacher is the one who must know how to find what the student is looking for.

Once the teacher has given the information to the student or coworker, he or she will often have to instruct the student on how to use the information.

2. Support

Students are the ones who need support when learning a new skill or piece of information. A teacher must act as the support person when the student needs this help. Support can come in many forms such as a coach, leader and even a counselor. In professional circles, a teacher may even have to support other teachers leading a particular subject matter.

3. Mentor

One of the biggest roles a teacher may have is that of a mentor. Students look up to teachers and may pattern their own behavior and work ethic to match the instructor. An older teacher can even be a mentor to a younger teacher who is just starting out in the profession.

4. Helping hand

A leader in a school is a person who takes on extra tasks such as leading the PTA meetings and even helping set up a gym for a big event. Teachers who are active in the school will often have more jobs than just the one they were hired to perform. Often, the goals of the teacher will match the direction that the school is taking.

5. Learner

One last important role a teacher must fill is that of a learner. Anyone who has been involved in a profession long enough knows that there is always something new to learn. A learner is a person who is always growing in life and will never claim that they know it all. A teacher will be challenged everyday with a new task that will help them grow into a better person.
