As globalization pervades all facets of our life, there is a vital need for the education sector to keep pace with the changes sweeping across the environment. In today's dynamic world and demanding pedagogies; to say that teaching is one of the most important jobs would not be wrong. Teachers not only spread knowledge but also contribute to the society at large as they are the reason behind most of the people, who lead their countries to new developments. With education, we can achieve all that we want and can make new things and resources and meet the growing needs but it is a teacher who is behind imparting the education to the people.
