After reading the wonderful blog of Sylvia Guinan with a wide collection of teachers thoughts on the subject, I didn't have much to add...
So why do I teach?
For me, my job is not just a job. It is a way of living, it is a very important part of my life. I could not imagine myself being at home doing nothing! In order to keep myself content, I have to do something. Writing, planning, teaching, training.
Of course this could be done in other professions as well.... But why teaching?
First of all I just have to be around people. I consider myself a very communicative and open-minded person, so being around people completes me. Being around kids is the best. Children's way of thinking is not complicated. I love that! I love the idea that they do not have this sense of fear to express themselves.
Another thing I like about kids is that they are curious. They ask, they want to know how things work! You can see the curiosity in their eyes!!!
It's a great feeling to pass your knowledge to someone, no matter if they are young or old!
My students are and will always be "my kids"!
So this is really a small post but it comes from my heart!!!
This time the pictures do the talking!
