Taking responsibility…

Been adjusting to our new management in school….also there are so many plans opened during our faculty meeting….Some may take effect by next year or some might materialize sooner coz I see our school head’s “seriousness” on those matters we discussed during the meeting….

At first I wasn’t sure if my boss knew the saying”first impressions last” coz during the turnover ceremony we waited for him to come at 2 pm. but he came to school almost 5pm already…..The reason was some of our superiors decided to put him on the last spot among those they endorsed as new school heads because he needed to attend to them and drive them as they visit schools for some turnover ceremonies….Our point is he was being abused for his kindness whereas he needed to attend to an important occasion…..The next day we were supposed to have our first faculty meeting at 1pm so we did not hold classes in the afternoon…..but he did not show up….his reason was a principal asked him to accompany her in an important event….So he called us to just resume our meeting the next day at 9am during class hours and we will just give our students somethings to work on while the meeting is in progress…..I had a feeling that our new boss still can’t give up some of his responsibilities while he was still a teacher….now that he is a school head already he should make some adjustments on how to deal with his subordinates and superiors as well….

So the next morning he came to school with some breakfast for us as some kind of a “bribe” I guess for he knew he needed to make up for those actions he had done lately…..and finally held our first faculty meeting…..It’s really quite difficult if you have a school head who isn’t focused yet on the things he needed to do…..if he has no direction the school will have no direction as well…..So I’m hoping for the new boss to be a better school head for the sake of our children and the school itself….

If we shall compare the youth today to those of yesterday…certainly there will be lots of differences…It’s like comparing climatic conditions decades ago to the present…

When I was a child I used to play outside even without wearing my sandals ( or even without your underwear ehem) you feel the soil and you won’t feel the heat…But now you have all your paraphernalias with you and you could still feel your skin burning with heat…

Most kids before knew how to wait but now waiting was a bore…and they would even tell you how bored they were…Oh they certainly want some action most of the time….

Before when you are in a classroom…you seldom see students becoming restless…and they really pay attention to the teacher most of the time…Now you have to remind them constantly to pay attention to what you’ll have to say….they want to move more than to listen….They don’t even know how to behave in public properly…. Their way of communicating is through shouting most of the time….They even have special names for their classmates (well I think it is due to gay lingo and exposure to gay bars and some gossip shows on TV)….I always remind them about calling names like Monkey or Horsey that it’s not proper  …but they love it when you call them like Madonna, Britney Spears, Beyonce, instead of their names…They were starstruck…ehem…

And their hairs…oh my…United Colors of Benetton hehe….Although some schools are stricter and they don’t allow it…..They also have the Anime look….whereas before…..we have the Beatles look….Well somehow it has an effect on students because they don’t seem to concentrate on their studies but more on making themselves look fashionable and trendy….Well there are a few who could be both trendy and brainy…..

So much with the differences….I just felt like it’s quite difficult to raise children nowadays because of the influence of media and our environment ….How I wish we could be more vigilant to our children when it comes to disciplining them…..They are surrounded by so many temptations….Even old people are …what more with these youth…
