I disagree with the statement that teachers were more appreciated and valued by society several years ago than nowadays. It is true that being a teacher was quite difficult in the past. With respect, I argue that teachers are even more valuable and cherished at present, in such an era of rapid development, because of the lack of educational resources and the huge content of knowledge.
Firstly, the problem of lacking educational resources becomes increasingly serious nowadays. With the development of education, every school-age child needs high-quality education resources, in which teachers with excellent skills play a vital role. My personal experience is a compelling example of this. I was once a member of the Java programming team, and there were always difficult tasks to solve or uncommon bugs to fix. And most of these problems didn’t have correct answers on the Internet or in a guidebook. So when I had trouble solving problems, instead of searching for the answer myself, which might make no sense, I turned to my experienced teacher for help. And my teacher will always give some ideas or some creative ways to solve these problems. Consequently, I was able to learn Java pretty well.
Furthermore, living in the age of the Internet, teachers can help us classify and distinguish the huge amount of knowledge. On the other hand, teachers can tell us whether this kind of knowledge is wrong or outdated, which means we can focus on the things that we really need. For instance, in the process of learning TOEFL, there were lots of different sayings, like the ways to get a high score in the reading part, or how to remember words is the most efficient. Honestly speaking, as a student, I couldn’t figure out what kind of ways are reasonable. During that period, my teacher gave me lots of advice and corrected many wrong methods I learned from the Internet. As a result, I made great progress in my TOEFL test.
In conclusion, I strongly feel that having teachers is worth appreciating, especially at present.
