Teachers can have a great impact on the social, personal, and intellectual development of individuals. Their influence stems from a love of learning, a talent for awakening students to new modes of thinking, an understanding of the human development process, and professional skills. A general description of teacher work activities includes: planning courses, instructing students, interacting with parents and administration, and keeping up with developments in the field.
