summer enDs

May 26, 2012

one week to go and i’m back to reality. a reality which used to be undefined and unimagined before. a reality that was untouched  years ago. a reality which i used to think to be difficult and not fun at all. a reality which now i am starting to appreciate and love and honor. yes, it’s difficult, i must say, but it is very fulfilling and satisfying. meeting and having new friends, sharing what you know, seeing them grow the way you pictured them, and learning new things every day as well. being an educator is no easy job. it won’t make your bank account fat either. but once it taps your heart, you’ll embrace its whole package. you won’t even see it as a job, at least that’s what they say.

i am not announcing here that it has fully tapped my heart. i think i’m still in the process of weighing and deciphering things. but this reality has started to bring joy and fun to my life, and lots of worries and stress at the same time. still, i’m sticking to it this mid year.

i know i haven’t written solely about being a teacher, educator, professor, lecturer, instructor, call it whichever way you want. perhaps one day, i’ll do it. and i want it to be nice and inspiring. the whole world will be reminded how noble and self-giving educators do. every human being will honor and respect these people who wholeheartedly offer themselves to others. now i’m not sure what the chuck i’m ‘monologueing’ here. crap.

“A teacher affects eternity: he can never tell where his influence stops.” -Henry Adams

“A teacher who can arouse a feeling for one single good action,for one single good poem, accomplishes more than he who fills our memory with rows and rows of natural objects, classified with name and form.” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
