In 1998 the UNESCO adopted "The World Declaration on Higher Education for the 21st Century". This document established four pillars of education: "Learning to know", "Learning to do", "Learning to be" and "Learning to live together". This paper shows a reflection of a student and English teacher-to-be on the concepts of being a teacher and an educator. She concludes that in order to be real educators we need to apply these four pillars of education and we need to include a fifth pillar thatshe has named"Learning to change". Since the immersion program is for English teachers, this document contributes to the reflection on their responsibility as educators and not just as instructors of a language.
