Some old students of mine would visit me in school every now and then…. It’s somehow “nakakataba ng puso”or heartwarming….. I regret the time when I was just a student and I never had the chance to visit my former teachers….It was really “bad of me”I guess….but ofcourse I always thought of my former teachers then as my second parents….who had taught me a lot of things, like my whole being was formed from all the variety of things I learned from them, mentally, emotionally, spiritually….
I won’t forget Mrs. Dorado my teacher in Grade 1….coz she was my teacher in Grade 2 as well….She was able to follow my improvement for 2 years….She was also the one who took me in after being rejected^^from a former teacher when I was just starting out in school^^(although I think that I deserved to be rejected^_~) ….That’s how it feels when you are accepted for what you are, even learning the most difficult things in life becomes easier when people believe in you….at that age I was just around six to seven years old yet I knew how it feels to be loved and be accepted already…..
I’d like to believe also that I had somehow built self confidence in my students just like the late Mrs. Dorado….Things become a lot easier to all of us no matter what undertakings we have in life if we let other people and our own students believe in themselves….
Oh how time flies so fast….It’s gonna be our summer vacation again by the end of March….The mood now in school is on accomplishing some school forms as the school year ends….What will be in store for us next school year?…I hope there will be some improvements in school and in all aspects of our lives for the teachers and students…
Last Friday we had a pre-valentine ball in school for our pupils….The younger kids really enjoyed their time dancing and singing….while the older pupils….oh…. though some were cooperative, others just focused on teasing each other and not on enjoying themselves that day….The teasing even caused them some misunderstanding…Some of them even refused to dance….too conscious about themselves….or is it because of some peer pressure or something…..I think the younger kids were just too innocent to feel such pressure as the older ones….But then as time went by the older ones decided to join the fun as well…..Ofcourse these kids really wanted to have fun too and who wouldn’t?…..Maybe we should be more patient in dealing with the young ones…..and the young ones will do the same to us^^
I had also received some letters from students on valentine’s day…Ofcourse they consider us teachers as their second parents….Some of the letters were so touching….even the one who is no longer attending his classes wrote to me….Perhaps it was the most touching of all…..I am just so flattered to receive those letters coz I knew I haven’t given the best of me to them…..I hope I could be a better person to deserve such love and care from them….and I just wanna say thank you from the bottom of my heart….
It was a busy day yesterday and I miss blogging^^….I was assigned to administer a test in another school….Every grading period we transfer to other schools to act as proctors….I don’t know why we have to transfer while my students are having their exams as well….It wasn’t a division, regional, or a national test….it’s just a school periodic test…..I really wanted to stay with my own kids, to be able to see how they fare with the test….coz the test was made by the supervisors not us….Yes we follow their curriculum…..but I feel like they should let us decide if some portions should be taught yet or not…..Isn’t it that the center of the educative process should be the child not the subject matter?….That’s what is happening now in our system…..The fast learners and the slow learners have the same type of periodic exams…..Our school mps as well as the other schools have been low or average because of those factors….I hope there will be changes on these things….we have been complaining but our complaints remain unanswered….
Thank God, it’s Friday^^….woke up early without much pressure and I’ve finished some paper works as scheduled though I know there will be more coming up next week…..well we just have to take them one at a time^^
Sigh….I miss my friend Azure^^….I know he must be very busy in school….Such a nice guy to miss^^….Hope he’s having great time in school and with his schoolmates^^
I remember when I was a student I would spend much time researching and researching….OMG…we need to have much patience in doing assignments and projects etc….
Though it’s really fun to be in school^^….
