    The main job of a teacher is to teach students simple

    In theory, the job of a teacher would be to teach children.

    Practically, that means a teacher has to continuously learn themself, update their knowledge on their subject, prepare lessons, be a trust person for their students, teach them not only their subject but also values and general knowledge, learn about and keep in mind their personal interdifferences and backgrounds, find out about their interests and build lessons on that, reflect, evaluate, work as a school partner, have meetings, discuss individual student cases, give extra lessons, watch over the playground, organise school trips, work for school even during holidays and for all that, not get well-paid.

    Go figure.

    This is a valid and good question. Simplistically put, the main job of a teacher is to impart knowledge. However, in the USA, with our broken public schooling system, the main job of teachers becomes so much more and somewhat blurred. Teachers are now expected to, not only impart knowledge, but to be a parents and instill values, monitor medications (in the case of ADD/ADHD students), mediate disputes and be an administrator.

    The main job of a teacher is to provide good education to his students, also moral and cultures values. And especially make his students conceptual about everything concern to the courses..
