Dealing with young kids who are innocent makes me feel so good.
When lessons are going on , they trust the teacher very much.Here I am, happily taking the responsibility in loving what I do and enjoying every bit of the effort to be taken.
Currently, I am teaching at my alma mater. Now, my teachers are my colleagues. It was weird and awkward at first, but eventually adapted to it as I still do call them 'Teacher'.
Today,after being away from the girls for 1 1/2 weeks for the Raya break, they just screamed out of excitement as I entered the classroom. For few minutes,I felt like a celebrity. Hahax! It was delightful to see the children are actually excited to start their lesson as I always believed, lessons are made very meaningful through colourful lessons. The joy in their eyes gives me great pleasure to teach them with all my heart. Totally a bliss!
Out of the blue while teaching, the Year 1 girls would randomly approach me and give me gifts, very innocent with a loving heart. They would actually parcel their favourite possessions like their pencils, erasers or even key-chains,being so speechless, I will return it to them saying that I would love them to use it instead. Not knowing how to show their love to me, these young girls would draw pictures of flowers,hearts or even me to give it to me. How thoughtful!
From these little moves these young kids, we adults forget how to love and appreciate people around us. There are so much to learn from these kids and I thank God for the blessing given to experience this wonderful journey of life.
