To become a professor, you need to have sufficient knowledge. Then you have to teach others simply and comprehensively. That’s the expectations from all.
Everything starts with the love of teaching. It starts from a service mentality without any single motive.
I personally think it’s not mandatory you teacher has to be best one to you. If your professor inspires you, you are lucky and deserved. It wasn’t happening for everyone. What I’m feeling right now, several students don’t have teachers too. They come up with self-learning. They suffered. Those experiences make them become teacher. Adding to the point, It’s all about individual interest. It all about your own passion. If you started feeling to teach or to be a professor. That’s astounding. But I felt the teaching profession was such a service to build a superior society. You have to come up with your whole heart to dedicate your life to your upcoming students.
Teaching profession gives satisfaction to our soul. Apart from recognition.
