The word teacher doesn't seem quite enough to fit a non-teacher's 'professional bill'. Most of us think they only teach, teach and teach and do nothing more or less than that. If you ever learn about what they do otherwise as a teacher, you may probably end up calling it as a 'heavily wholesome job'.

Teacher Is Just A Title.
Though the title is intact, teachers do many other things which is known less. Supposedly, they plough other seeds into the field of education as well. They invest their efforts, time and energy into various other roles in an educational institution. 'Preparedness' is assumingly the tag stuck to every teacher, without a choice. On any given day, they're obliged to perform different duties, by caring minimum on 'the type of job' as such.
Apparently, teachers play roles which influences the students directly or indirectly; like counsellors, literally being alternate parents to students, psychologists, social workers, secretaries, nurse, guide, friend, mentor, observer, disciplinarian, entertainer and so on; within the confinement of an educational environment.
As opposed to a corporate setting, a teacher can never say, "That's not my job" or "It's not mentioned in my job description". The job calls for mental preparedness, to be ready for anything that comes their way.
