Faculty and continues by taking the necessary courses to fulfill the formal process of studying
at a university. However, although the period that the process has started is known, the period
which shows the end of the process doesn’t exist, as this profession needs lifelong dedication,
learning, and hard work.
At universities, students are taught the lessons which help them come closer to the idea
of becoming a teacher. The students are given theoretical tuition which gives rational
explanations to almost every situation in a learning environment. In this period, the candidate
teachers “learn how to teach”. Therefore we can easily say that the time spent in the
Educational Faculties is a period where the students are constructed with a professional
identity as well as theoretical learning.
The process of becoming a teacher continues after finishing the faculty. The process of
becoming a teacher lingers as the graduates need to pass another exam to be replaced as a
teacher. It is when the teachers are placed when they understand that the process of becoming
a teacher doesn’t have an ending and that the process goes on until the retirement period.
So what are some of the reasons why these people want to become a teacher; this current study
explores the reasons indicated by 56 prospective English teachers about the reasons why they
have chosen a profession that doesn’t have a period of completion.
