a simple day

A Story by sette

When I started the job six months ago, I know I was doing this for the practical side of it, earning a little bit higher salary than my previous teaching job. I had a hard time passing my credentials because of two reasons; I lost my important papers and I did not use any connection, I want to enter the field through my own merit. The last six months had been an amazing journey; a challenge to myself, a reflection of myself and the calling which I remained deaf for so long. I met my students, they put a smile on my face when things around me keep on crumbling down, despite the limited resources they have. No money, no food, no books, no school supplies and most of the times no love even at home. They feel unwanted, unloved, discriminated because of their ethnicity, of their exotic looks and most of them are non-readers but then they are the ones who encouraged me to see the other side of life�"the simplicity of life. They made me realize that I can learn to love openly and not be hurt in the process. They encourage me to love myself more and not to be skeptical about things.

Another teacher!! Welcome aboard. I retired after 45 years in the classroom. It is a shame that most people, non-teachers of course, do not understand us. Strange creatures that stand in front of a group of children and teach them something. I honestly felt that if I made it interesting and fun they would get so much more out of it. Financially there is a meager reward for all that we do and put up with. Our real reward comes when former students come back and thank us.
Stick with it. I don't know of any married, family man teacher, who can only afford to teach. Take care - Dave

Indeed austerity and supression are amazing levelers as people then learn real value and not the values created by a greedy world led by greedy and powerful people. You have found the real reasons for love.

I would love to teach the children. I enjoyed your story. I believe, good teachers motivate children to learn and to succeed. Maybe one day. Finish my education and I would be able to teach. Thank you dear friend for sharing the amazing story.

this is so touching, and i am so glad you can keep teaching...i relate so much to what you said about seeing the faces of the students....each new group i teach looks at me with those "i need you to teach me "eyes"--
and I am immediately compelled to give them my best.

Nakakaiyak ito, Tama aanhin mo naman mataas na salary kung mas maraming bata iyong hanggan ngayon gusto matuto pero hindi makapagaral kaso walang pampaaral. Mas mabuti na nakatulong ka sa mga batang mas nangangailangan. Iyan din ang plano ni God para sa iyo kaya alam kong magiging happy ka sa napili mong gawin o tahakin.

tama ka marie challenge na mahalin sila at mahalin din ako pero ewan ko ba cute talaqa sila
WOW! WOW! And WOW! This is a million-dollar share! I can't decide what I love the most, your writing or your heart, that you show so beautifully & vivid here, without seeming like you even realize you are doing that. In other words, you share so modestly, but your way of seeing the world is so precious, this makes you look like an angel. I'm very touched. I've always admired teachers to the moon & back, but this reaches out and grabs us! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
