Teaching When There’s A lot on Your Mind…

So, I am not really a bundle of joy lately but at least I have children at school who make me smile. Of course, admittedly, there are also those who test me so much that I sometimes end up wondering if I could have handled things better. Teaching college/university is much easier. I taught using a projector using software (Maya, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Illustrator or whatever – yes I miss teaching them) that catch students’ attention on its own. I taught in an air-conditioned lab and janitors cleaned up after me. I miss laboratory room T407 where I used to practically live. Teaching primary school is very challenging in it being the fundamentals, the basics, and the stepping stone. I hope I can master it, because right now I don’t think I have yet. One has to be careful. I am almost 35 and I can still remember a teacher who said something to me in not so nice a way when I was 9.

I never dreamed of becoming a teacher in the first place(i had other dreams: journalist, nun, doctor, animator) but I ended up teaching university for three years and now teaching primary school for almost one school year. It must be destiny, and I hope I could make it worth the while not just for me but for those I am teaching.

Entering a New Chapter… Again!

Today, I have to visit a company that I applied to recently. I will be working for them as a regular home-based blogger starting this September. I am required to visit the office at least twice a month, for bonding and reporting. I do hope that this new job will not negatively affect my thesis writing. I am also working regularly for another company, which I have been writing for since 2008. I rate English oral exams part-time, and have other freelance jobs. However, I do like to keep busy. The extra income is also most welcome. 🙂
