My tenth year at work [Copy link] 中文

Rank: 2

Post time 2008-12-6 08:49:58 |Display all floors
It's the tenth year since I've taught as an English teacher.I'm tired of working
like this,for I've come to realise that my English has gotten worse and I become
slow in activating students and my own thinking.Why?Ten years of being a
teacher,I gained more money than teachers elsewhere maybe,but I ruin my
health and the work brings me serious illness as well--I suffer from insomnia.
The deteriaration of health makes me realise I've not dealt with my work and
life well.I've lost my balance in this relationship.
       But then I try to persuade myself.As long as  I stay here and work as a
teacher,it's my necessary responsibility to teacher students and treat them well.
After all,I can't blame the students just because of the authority's fault.Though
I have a lot of routine work to do,I enjoy two long holidays which other jobs won't
offer.
    I want to be like the doctors who become more experienced and more skillful
as I work longer.I don't want to lose my ability of speaking English and teaching.
     Only when I improve my English could I teach my son and my students well.

You don;t know how wonderful to be a teacher than other occupation, stable income, long holidays, and indeed teacher is like doctor, the longer you work, the more experience you have at teaching.
As a stuff in the company, we don't have that much holidays and we are in the pressure to be fired during economic crisis like this moment, we may lost our job, house, income to support our life. Living is very hard.
You are the world

Those who keep learning stay young, whether at 20 or 80.

A college teacher in my mind should be one who can share his/her values and viewpoints, his/her joys and smiles, his/her research or works with his/her students.

Offering others a way to fish excels offering others a fish.
Another famous saying goes: Glad to learn, and glad to teach.

So, keep learning.
