Teaching has always been interesting for me. I have always been inspired by how educators are able to mold their students within the four corners of a room, day in and out. And many times in those years, I found myself teaching in public schools through the opportunities of my school’s curriculum, and sometimes through voluntary work in different institutions. It was fun.
Then when my lost 20-year old self decided to go to Europe for 3-4 months, I found myself teaching again in a kindergarten and in 3 integrated progressive learning institutions. And being with children for more than a quarter of a year was really heart-warming.
And recently, I was blessed enough to be into it again. I didn’t know I still had “it.” The “it” that was not about the teaching skills I have, but the “it” that was about my passion for teaching. I don’t really know where life will bring me, but I do hope that I become the instrument of blessing that I dream to be to and for the youth. Because more than all the fun and the heart-warming experiences of teaching, it is most important that there is that peaceful thought that I am able to touch the hearts and lives of the innocent and pure.
Happy World Teachers’ Day!
