I’m a teacher :)

11 May

I’m sitting in the classroom and figured I can let you know something interesting about me 🙂 I am 21 years old and I’m a teacher. xaxa Most people find it weird that I am so young and yet I teach but there’s nothing weird about it, really. I never wanted to be one in the first place, I mean, not that i mind or anything, but this was never a goal for me. It just happened. I was looking for a job, but, of course, a job that can easily fit in my busy schedule as a full-time college student. So, my ex teacher in art 😀 who happens to be my mom’s best friend and who used to leave on the top floor decided to speak with the headmistress of the school where she works in. Did i mention that I graduated from that same school? So, before I knew it I was hired 🙂 There wasn’t even a proper interview but rather just letting me know exactly what position I would be taking. I was surprised they took me so easily but at the same time, not so surprised. I mean, they know what I was like and that I was a really good student and they were the people who taught me everything so…I guess it was normal. So, the first year I started teaching english to preschoolers. They were so cute and so much fun. I used to spend a lot of time with them. This year, however, I teach information tech to the 2,3,4 and 9 graders. The 9 graders are something, I’m telling you. They’re always hitting on me, asking for my number, Facebook and whatnot but I’m used to it by now. 😀 They also flunk school a lot, which is why I have the time to write about this right now because otherwise now I was supposed to have a class with them. Anyway, this job has been a great experience and the perfect job for a full-time student because I don’t work full-time but rather just have a couple of classes a week and that’s it. But I think this will be my last year because next year I have to find myself a job that’s in my field of expertise and that is graphic design (I study Multimedia, graphics and animation at the university) So, that’s it for now. I have a bag full of funny stories of my time as a teacher and I’m going to share some of them with you, but not now. I have to work. Now i have a class with the pre-schoolers. 🙂

This is a picture taken last year with them 🙂 So cute, aren’t they?

    I was a teacher for three and a half years in the Southwest of China. Both in a private language school, and in the public schools. In the public schools there were fifty students to a classroom. I admire all teachers!
    Best wishes for you!

      I also admire all teachers, now that i’ve been on the other side. It takes a lot of patience and love for the job! 😛
