Teacher

Teachers are generous scholars who build the minds and souls of their students. Although many have permanent positions within a community or academy, others become itinerant teachers, wandering the world and looking to help guide students the run across on their own path while doing research to further their own studies. Others bring or accrue students along the way, using the journey as a medium through which to bestow lessens.

Career

Qualifications

Although most people in a community help each other by sharing what they've learned, in order to be considered a real Teacher, people need formal training at an Academy to formally absorb both a broad body of knowledge and skills in research and pedagogy.

Perception

Social Status

Teachers are highly valued for their devotion to improving the lives of their students as well as continuing and contributing to the body of knowledge in the world. They can be sheltered, which leads them to have a reputation for being a little out of touch with the practicalities of life. However itinerant teachers, those who travel and teach, are understood to be able to take care of themselves in a way that school teachers aren't.
