I always wanted to be a teacher. When I was a child, I used to play with my friends and even with my dolls -they were my pupils and obviously I was the teacher. I used to enjoy teaching them, correcting their exercises, writing on the board, preparing the materials for the classes, ... This is a typical game everybody plays but, in my case, it turned out to be my job years later.
As almost all of you know, I really love my job, it makes me really happy and I feel good when I'm in a classroom with you all. It doesn't matter if I'm tired or not, or if I'm having a bad day, everything vanishes the very moment the class starts. That's the moment when my favourite saying comes true -"Teaching is learning"-. Every day I learn something from you. You teach me a lot of things, they cover a wide number of different topics and even how to become a better teacher, that's why I'm really thankful to all of you.
We all know that being a teacher involves a lot of things, not only knowing our subject well and using our imagination to try pupils understand it. It's much more than that.
A colleague from the school sent me this funny clip some time ago. Now I would like you to watch it. I hope you understand most of it and then you can comment on it.
How was it? Easy or difficult to understand? Do you agree with it? Why (not)?
As your final activity for the course "Aulas Europeas", leave your comment on this entry.
"Why are you a teacher? When did you decide to become one? Do you like your job? What are the good and the bad points of it?"
Now it's time to tell you THANK YOU FOR YOUR ACTIVE PARTICIPATION and I'm really looking forward to seeing you soon.
