Paalam

(My last blog entry for our Social Studies class’ multiply site.)

I think I haven’t been a very good teacher during the entire school year. Even if I didn’t see one of my students’ rating of his teachers, I knew I’d get a grade of 4, 5 being the HPS. Thinking again, all those who got 5 were already veteran teachers, being in such profession for years. Given so, I think 4 is quite enough for a new one like me. Ang taas pa nga yata nun. Dude, make it 3 na lang. hahahaha…

I already know the reasons. Often, I teach too fast to the point of bulol na ako. I had a hard time too managing stuff. You know, a teacher’s job pala is not limited in the classroom lang, the room per se. A teacher has other duties -check papers, make lesson plans, prepare visually-stimulating educational aids, prepare quizzes and LTs, communicate with parents, faculty meetings and so on. It’s not really just about walking on the platform and along narrow spaces between columns and rows of seats in the classroom while trying to catch the students attention, making them focus on the lesson or subject matter. It’s so challenging, you know.

Bilang guro, di lang ako nagtuturo. Bilang guro, sinisikap ko ring maging instrumento para mahubog sila. At yun ang di maintindihan ng iba kapag nagbibigay ako ng mababang grado. marami dyan, gusto puro matataas na grade na hindi naman sila deserving batay sa output. Ang iba mas pinahahalagahan ang .5 kesa sa maintindihan na may kulang sa essay niya, mas pinahahalagahan ang 1 point at magtatampo dahil nakakuha ng -1 dahil sa NFD, mas pinahahalagahan pa nila yun kesa sa pagkatuto na huwag nang ulitin pa ang pagkakamali.

I guess, ganun talaga ang trabaho ng guro- nagtuturo at umuunawa.

Sometimes, because of sleepy faces or noisy students, I get lost too. Haay, too many things I want to express. That’s one of the limitations of a teacher — in spite the fact that he has the mastery of his subject, he can’t explain everything. Simplest or most profound.

Indeed, we can’t learn everything in an instant. Pinatitibay ng panahon — hinuhubog ng Diyos upang maging mahusay sa kalaunan.

That’s the best thing I’ve realized. 🙂

The bottomline is… yeah, sorry guys, hindi ko na-meet ang expectations ninyo. Pero sana dumating ang panahon na makita rin ninyo ang maliliit na bagay na naibahagi ko sa inyong pagkatuto sa first year high school bilang AP teacher ninyo.

Salamat at paalam…. sa iba, kasi mukhang may magsa-summer. Dun sa mga mapo-promote, paburger naman kayo. 🙂

Malalaking regalo kayo ni God sa yugtong ito ng buhay ko, pramis. 🙂 sige na, nagdadrama na ako dito.

God bless you, students of 1C, 1F, 1H, 1K, 1N.
