As SY 2014-2015 opens tomorrow, my redemption also begins. Last year had been a challenging one and going through it had meant I survived! In a teacher's life, the first few years of teaching is usually the hardest part.
As SY 2014-2015 opens tomorrow, my days will be all about my new kids. Though I don't have an advisory class this year, I had promised my partner teacher that I will help her with her class. I am adopting her class.
As SY 2014-2015 opens tomorrow, my 2-year stint will slowly come to a close. If I want to stay as a public school teacher is something I am taking into consideration. However, I am not closing my doors to bolder opportunities.
As SY 2014-2015 opens tomorrow, I promise to find love. Love for my kids and of course, the other kind of love too! That one which makes one's heart skip a beat.
Being a Resource Volunteer last summer made me realize a lot of things. Made me more aware of my teaching style and also taught me how to give constructive feedback and suggestions to incoming teachers. There was a point that I felt drained and inadequate because my experiences weren't enough. Nonetheless, I told myself I should not feel bad. We should never force ourselves to give more than what we have.
As every year and every kids can never be the same, I take this year as another year of many many firsts. As to what kind of firsts, I am about to discover day by day.
The second wave of teachers whom I volunteered for in Pangasinan graduated last night. I felt like a mother, too nervous and excited for all of them at the same time. Starting tomorrow, we embark into this journey of transformation-- of this nation and of ourselves.
