Great Minds are Young

Missing the Spirit!!

Posted on: September 24, 2011

There’s one thing that made me forget myself, filled me with enthusiasm and energy, and made every single effort worth the hard work; it’s being in class inspiring, and getting inspired! And I miss that one thing enormously 😦

I made a choice last year and I am not regretting it a bit. I am starting a new chapter full of new challenges and sought for achievements and success stories. But that doesn’t deny the fact that I was never greatly rewarded, and will probably never be, the way I was as a teacher (beside of course being a proud mother 😉 ).

Well, to tell the truth, I do not miss the long long hours of corrections, but I do miss reading the amazing stories and thoughts of those bright young minds. I do not miss the hectic working hours and the never-ending preparations, but I do miss all the interaction with my students, the workshops, the activities, the events, the projects, and all the crazy, funny, creative moments we shared. I do not miss correcting hundreds of quizzes and exams, but I greatly miss the proud shiny eyes, the big smiles and the Hoorrays of my students when they get good grades or they improve their average. I do not miss at all the disappointment and sadness of some who could not perform well (for it broke my heart), but I definitely miss their strong will to move on, their determination to work harder and ambition to achieve.

Well, there were definitely some bad days, but also a much greater number of good and wonderful days. I learned from the first and cherished the second, but currently miss both! I miss every student, every creative thought, every inspiring moment, every laugh, every smile, every morning hug, and most importantly, I miss the whole SPIRIT!!

In fact, there is no greater pleasure than seeing the eyes of my students shining! There’s no greater reward than a group of amazingly creative young minds interacting enthusiastically, and craving for more. There is no greater job than being a leader, a follower, and a partner at the same time.

I truly wish, and more positively hope, and optimistically know, that all teachers would focus on developing the great potential of the great young minds, rather than injecting information in their heads to be ‘ejected later upon request’!
