Hello, Blog World! It's been a long time. This has been my longest hiatus ever! I can't even believe that it's been 6 months since I was here last. Our internet connection at home got screwed so I didn't really have a choice. I didn't (still don't) have the luxury of time to go visit our Net Centers here. But, now, thanks to my mobile phone, I am able to blog. This is my first time to try it.
I really miss writing and reading. My busy schedule doesn't allow me to do much writing and/or reading outside of the things I need for my classes. That's just the thing about teaching, you have to always be updated and you also continue to learn more and more as your students learn, too. Teachers need to work so much more than their students. Students may think otherwise, but that is the truth.
What's good about all this is the fact that it's fun. We, teachers, may be loaded with so much work, but we enjoy our work. Well, at least, I do. Very much.
Aside from all the new learnings and realizations I get from my work, another thing I love about it are my students and the friendship I make with them. It's always fun to listen to new, fresh and crazy ideas from younger people. It's always nice to find out what their thoughts are about various issues and things. They never fail to amaze me. They always make me feel younger and more positive.
Everyday, I come home exhausted from all the work I have had to finish throughout the day, but more importantly, I come home happy, fulfilled and thankful for another fun, busy day spent in my favorite place- the classroom, and with my students. This always keeps me going. And, I sure hope these things don't change. :)
