I finally quit my job after trying hard to keep my emotion toned down all the time in that office.
I work in two places (used to be 2 places), one is in Pharmacy Vocational School and the other was in this place where I taught Science Experiments to primary kids (it’s a non-formal school, that’s why I call it office). I am not going to say the name here nor the many reasons why I left. There are too many management errors there…here’s a statistic, within almost 3 years I worked there, there were 30 employes who had left the office. Some even left in less than a month after seeing the condition. So, you figure!!
Let’s not talk about it…I just want to share the ones I am going to miss from leaving that place.
I really like all my friends there. They were what keeping me happy…but one by one had left 😦 I still see them once in a while, we try to keep in touch even though we were no longer working there.
The ones I will miss the most, and it’s a bit impossible to keep in touch with them, are the students!!
Not all of them are the best students in the world. Not all of them are the smartest kids I have ever taught. Not all of them are the type who can sit nicely during the lesson…but each and every one of them are special.
I like how they slowly changed from a very active kids to kids who become curious and curiouser with science. Primary students are different with high school students, I think every teacher knows that, they are adorable sometimes, but also a test to our patience sometimes 😉
I wish I can write about them individually, revealing the things I remember the most about them (like I did with my high school students> here) … but for one and many reasons, I couldn’t do that. I will keep the memory of them in my heart 🙂
You can see how tiny I am…even some primary students are taller than me 😉
I was very happy to see their reaction when I told them that that day was my last day as their teacher…some of them (mostly the girls) wouldn’t stop hugging me, some of them said ‘please stay and be our teacher forever’. It’s sad leaving them…REALLY!!! I am going to miss them a lot.
Although it was a non-formal school, I hope everything I have taught can help them be a smarter and better person.
I really love teaching 🙂
