I thought my practice teaching would start today. I have already prepared my lesson plan and visual aids/instructional materials for the three sections of grade seven. I was excited. But I also felt a little bit of tension. What if the students wouldn’t listen to me? What if they will not behave accordingly? What if they will give me a hard time? What if they won’t like me?
It’s somehow a relief that my practice teaching is postponed until next week. I would have a longer time studying the behavior, personality, capacity and learning skills of the students in three sections for me to come up with the best learning approach and strategy that would suit them well.
Today my cooperating teacher, who is an excellent and a nice lady, had asked her class: What would you do if tomorrow will be the end of the world?
She got answers like I will pray. I will spend time with my family. I will gather my family and we will go to the outer space. and many more that are awfully crazy.
I just sat on the corner and thought about the question. Hmmm. This is tough.
If tomorrow will be the end of the world, I would most probably find somebody to lose my virginity with. Hushhh. Kidding!
If tomorrow will be the end of the world, I would eat a lot
without worrying of my figure. I would conquer my fear, and by that I mean I will ride on a ferriswheel and zip line. I would stand at the edge of the 3rd floor of SM mall, or of a cliff. I would go paragliding. I would dare to read Wuthering Heights, Emma and Pride and Prejudice and try hard to understand their English. And of course I am going to spend the remaining of my life with my love ones.
What about you? What would you do?
