boredom reigns every week

Is it just me or does most school’s contact time aka meetings too draggy and most of the time, most of the agenda doesn’t concern everyone ?

Either that or they consist of useless things like reviews of program that were carried out and no one really cares about the reviews anyway. In the end, we’ll just put something politically correct down so we can get over and done with the entire affair.

Hmm.. I think there is something that is not quite right about it but then again, I am not sure how to resolve it either.

2nd Week

All praise to God for allowing me to pass through the second week nicely despite a few hiccups here and there.

Indeed, teaching life have opened my eyes even more and watching the kids behave and how the learning process works from a different point of view is truly an enriching experience.

My First Week

On some days, I’m not so good at communicating with people. Sometimes I might think I know what other people are thinking and feeling, but I don’t really. I can only guess.

If there is one thing I’ve learned about teaching (among the millions of things I feel like I am learning by the second), it is that every single day is a whole new game. As long as I get up in the morning and keep going to face first period, it will get better and I will get better. That doesn’t mean the first few weeks is going to be easy.

Why did you decide to leave your job?

Someone ask me this morning, after I hand over my resignation letter earlier.

I could have said either of these:

  • I found myself bored with the work and looking for more challenges.
  • There isn’t room for growth with my current employer and I’m ready to move on to a new challenge.
  • I am interested in a job with more responsibility, and I am very ready for a new challenge.
  • My prior work didn’t allow me to grow professionally or intellectually and didn’t offer advancement opportunity.

Instead, I choose to reply positively yet, sending the message across noticeably.

Enough is enough

In the workplace when you’re being shot down routinely by negativity, at what point do you say, “Enough is enough?”

They say a job you know is not for you and is causing undue stress is a hard thing to let go of if you are a caring and responsible individual.

Do I stay because I want to do the responsible thing, because I don’t want to let anyone down, and because my loyalty should be so strong to this company?

Or do I for once in my life do what it takes to get me on a path that makes sense for me and my abilities and natural aptitudes? I think I am answering my own question. The latter makes more sense, now doesn’t it?
