The summer semester in the college is moving quite fast with the prelims approaching next week, while me teaching chemistry is slowly starting to grow on me – that or the massage I got yesterday was just so fabulous that it seems like I have relaxed a lot today.
I went to see a physical therapist yesterday. I could say it was good because Mother Goose paid for it, but as for the experience, it was on that fine line between pleasurable pampering and excruciating torture. LOL. My body hates me.
However, because of that I got a good sleep last night – it was like the first drop of rain after a long drought, though I still got roused for a time or so, but it was a great improvement that I welcomed very much. Plus, my thoughts are kinder to me now. I guess the initial shock of me teaching chemistry is wearing away from my system.I think I am starting to like it – that or I am starting to like my students.
I also have realized why I decided to jump at the opportunity to teach chemistry though I knew very well that it was unknown territory. Consciously or otherwise, I guess it had something to do with searching for growth in my very baby ant career as a teacher.
Let us put it this way, “unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.” As my very wise friend put it, me teaching chemistry might be a mistake, but it was a great mistake. He might sound like Oprah but so far he proves to be right.
