Classroom Teacher No More!

School year 2011-2012 has ended. I remember writing Believing is Seeing, first quarter of the school year.

Believing is Seeing!

 I was telling my story of being given yet another pink slip of  Pink Slips , and survived in the end.

I didn't teach this school year. I had a different job. I supported three schools with their IEPs, a special education document, making sure they were all up-to-date and in compliance.

It was a tough job, especially during the first few months since I needed to work with teachers rather than students.

I had to deal with power struggles, learned helplessness, dependency and confusion at the beginning and support, commitment, teamwork and effort and getting-things-done in the end :) 100% compliance!!!

I had quite a few stories to remember, actually a lot of memories to remember.  Different people, different stories, various personalities, unique philosophies, distinctive work ethics and leadership.

I learned a lot, from being persistent, committed, patient, of service and we-can-get-this-done-attitude!

It was quite a year!

... and I look forward to more school years with my team! Kudos Geronimo!

... thank you for the freebies too! :))

  3. kudos to all teachers! taas kamay ko to everyone who took their time honing other people's skills and talents. :)

  4. i think its really harder to deal with adults than kids... kids can be very "makulit" and all... but somehow... they are manageable but adults? they got a lot of questions, reasoning and sometimes, they just don't care at all... and it really needs a lot of patience and perseverance... Kudos to you for surviving that! hihi

  5. It's great that you've learned a lot from taking a new responsibility.

  6. wow great job!! You can do it Gemma! God bless! ;)

  7. This just goes to show that a teacher's job is never done. There will always be other things to do in the name of teaching.

  8. yay! summer break and you needed it the most :-) hope that you will enjoy the school break :-)

  9. congratulations! indeed we always learn from different people and different experiences in our lives.
