The job I like is teaching.Teaching is consided as the world’snoblest peofession.It is greater than any other job in the society because evryone in the worldrespects teachers.
Teaching has a freadom ,because a teacher has to work six regular hours pera day.But is a very responsible job.A teacher has to work with Children.So it is not a montonouns job.Working with childrn gives some one pleasure because children are like flowers.
Teaching is not a highly paid job.But I like that very much because the contetment.We kvown is more valuable than money.
