I am everything

I figure out lately that being me is being everything.
I mean being a teacher is about being everything.
Not only that you have to teach but you have to be what your students want you to do to let yourself be A person and at the same time allowing yourself (for no charge) to be a role model.
I am not only an English teacher who teaches ENGLISH but a teacher cum

walking-talking dictionary
*answering every question & translating everything

first-aid kit
* be ready for panadol & pads

helper
*cleaning the classroom

etc....etc.....

Enough of these...

Hi Dawn, I love your name. Just pronouncing it brings out the sunshine.

I have always admired teachers, though I know my teachers never liked me.
I guess they didn't appreciate scrambling up their tables, whole class panic when I accidentally release a snake in class, ha ha.
No joke when wearing a cheong sum or sarong too.

Never can tell one of your pupils might become the future PM or even a rocket scientist.
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.

And the best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes, and inspires his listener with the wish to teach himself.
A teacher's purpose is not to create students in his or her own image, but to develop students who can create their own image

You have a nice day and keep a song in your heart, best regards, Lee.
