“Since I was young, I always wished to be a good teacher some day in the future after graduating from university,” said Kum Sros, 22, a physics student at the Royal University of Phnom Penh.
He said that working as a teacher is not only valuable, but also helps to build the human resources of our country. In Cambodia, many young people are in need of an education so they can compete effectively in the job market.
Sros went on to say that he would make a good teacher because he loves teaching and explaining, and is not afraid to speak in front of a crowd.
However, he is also concerned about the challenges. Although he feels that he can do the job, he said that there are many aspects of teaching that he is unsure of. He said that he needs to know more than just knowledge and proper teaching behaviour, which are both key components of the job.
