CHAPTER ONE

BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

The word teaching has a wider scope than the way people think of it. Teaching is neither restricted to the four walls of the school where instruction is carried out for learners.

Teaching starts from the home where parents teach their children norms and values of the society. Teaching can take place when teachers plan and guide the students’ experiences such that they will learn the desired skills or knowledge as quickly as possible and make steady progress in mastering the subject.

It must be strongly noted that teaching goes along with learning. Van Dalen and Brittle (2007) defined teaching as the guidance of students through planned activities so that they may acquire the richest learning possible from their experience and required the active participation of the child. Teaching according to Ayejuyo (2010) is the act of impacting knowledge by an experience individual to an inexperienced and less matured individual.

Adolescent is a period of major change ushered in by the normal activity associated with the growths part of puberty and by changing environmental expectation it is that period in everybody’s life that lies between the end of childhood and the beginning of adulthood. It is a stage in human development and it is regarded as a separate culture within the larger world.

Therefore many people choose careers not because they have the ability or trait associated with the occupation or jobs they have chosen but because of the respect and the prestige, which the occupation commands in the society. Every individual regardless of socio-economics background would like to choose occupation that is lucrative.

The teaching profession is seen by most people as a stepping stone to other jobs, consequently teacher who taught in most of our school who are graduates from universities  did not study education as their disciplines. There are some teacher whose social ways of life makes people look down on them hence having negative attitude towards the teaching profession.

There is saying that whatever your hand find doing do it with all your might. Teacher should be stop of reason for choosing the profession he or she choose out of the existing profession.
