I love teaching, I love being a teacher, and of course... the funny and cool one.
This week has been a busy teaching week for me. I met more new students this week than before, and my brain has never been emptier when facing those new faces.
Man, they have so many different look on their faces...
Linda, me and R's good friend's mom: she always has a big smile on her face, but you can never predict what she's gonna say in the next minute.
Me:Mm...let's talk about the most impressive thing that happened to you?
Linda: Oh,not that again...we don't like to do that, why is that every teacher wants us to do that????
Lily, Q, Annabell and Stella, my new high school students. Just met them last night. I walked in the classroom, just got caught in the sudden rain, feeling a bit sick. And my mind was totally blank . I said hi, introduced myself. They looked at me wondering what was I doing there...the four of them sat so close at one corner of the room and couldn't stop whispering and giggling....Man, I must have looked like an idiot to them.
Anyways, this week has been a total challenge to me, just to be stared on the stage with my talking of nonsense. I feel like a clown trying to please every audience, ether very young, who didn't care whatde hell you are doing there, or the teenagers, who might be waiting to see what new tricks you might have for them...and the kinda old ladies, who had far too many learning experiences, and always have this strange suspicious looks...
But...it's not too bad being a clown, cuz I know I can always make some laughter in the classroom,and I can always make friends with them. I always come up with something to teach them, and make them fall in love with me, just like the same old days.
So I let them do whatever faces they might make to a new stupid teacher, and let them answer: "Teacher....What....ever!!!!" Jeee...I can still see their eyes half blinking with a long sigh...
My favorite students this week? David, 12 yearold boy, who is bright and cool, always willing. And Shannon, that's for sure, who is learning Chinese from me and nonstopingly made me laugh and laugh by saying...fuxk!! shit, and damn...and fxxk again whenever she was a bit frustrated with her ber per mer fer...So smart and so hilarious..he he he :P

Yeah, I'm a teacher too. And I have to admit that the best part about being a teacher is the reaction some kids give you. Kids are always, always unpredictable. I always have to be on my toes. Good luck with them.
