Teaching is a process

January 4th, 2016, 10am

It was 20°C with scattered clouds. There was moderate breeze.

I´m gonna start teaching, again. All my students wait for going back to school to meet their old friends, to know new ones, but some of them like going back because of their teachers. That is what a student told me last year- I don´t know if it´s real or not, but I like thinking that is almost true. I love teaching. When I was fifteen I didn´t imagine I´d teach to young people, or kids. They make my days better. Some of us say that teaching is not a work, it´s a beautiful occupation to help more people to improve their lives. As English teacher you must know everything about this foreign language to them. I mean, Guatemala is not an english speakers’ country, but all my students thought I wasn´t Guatemalan. They don´t tend to meet people who can speak, write, read or listen to English. That´s something I like about my jobe. I can teach them how to be as cool as me, like they say. On the other hand, going back to school is not like burning in Hell, I enjoy my job. So… vacations have finished, but my days as teacher have started now.

I like when you come and make me laugh. Maybe it´s for you that I come to school.
