AHA Moment: The Teacher that I Am

I am a teacher by profession. I am a teacher by choice. I am a teacher by heart. I love teaching. Despite the fact that towards the end of my career I had some doubts if changing career was indeed the wisest decision I’ve ever made. I still love teaching because deep in my heart I know I have the same passion I used to have the first time I set foot in the classroom. I still love teaching because I can still feel that burning desire to be with the students and share my life experiences. I still love teaching despite the fact that my ideas are somehow clouded by my withered enthusiasm brought by the disillusions I encountered in the field.

When my corporate job was giving me persistent nightmares, caustic hallucination and unhealthy psychological rants… teaching was not really the career I had in mind. All I knew then was, I need a change of career, period! What kind of career? That, I didn’t actually know. I just need an alibi, perhaps to get out of the corporate jungle fast and easy so I took education units to justify that alibi. But little did I know that that decision will end my endless struggle for survival and will start a life I didn’t know exist.

You know, teachers with a passion like yours are amazing to contribute their time, their skills and their heart to mold children into responsible adults. My husband is a teacher too.

I am glad you found life after the corporate world. It's still murky for me.
