Last Day of Classes Blues

Yesterday was the last day of our Los Banos Batch 2 review classes, while today is goodbye for Los Banos Batch 1 students.  It bugs me.  I’ve been with these two batches (12 sections, about 360 students) for almost three weeks.  Teaching theem was a joy–there was almost never a dull section.  My corny jokes were “benta” to most everyone (aminin ninyo!  Finding Nemo, Dora the Explorer, and ofcourse, the latest: birds have hands!  harhar) , and almost everyone was in awe of how I explained grammar in terms of math: Dewmainean Theorem Proving in Pronoun Cases, Trigonometric Functions in Verbs, Inequality Statements (?) in Prepositions, Problem Solving in Double Negatives, and many more!  Hay.  I feel sad because:

  1. I am going to repeat the Grammar Handbook again (waaaah!!!), translated to “No rest when teaching”.
  2. I’ll have to wake up earlier because I’ll start teaching in out-of-Los Banos venues.
  3. Since I’ll be out of LB for most of the day, I won’t be able to take sneak peeks of Raviv during breaks
  4. I’ll miss those appreciative, smart students of mine.

Hay, here’s I crossing my fingers that my Tanauan and LB3 students are going to be as smart and as appreciative as my LB1 and LB2 students.  I hope they would READ THIS, hehe.

  1. I knew it! You are not a MoNsterTeacher after all. 🙂
    Tanauan? Sis, ang layo yta.
    Anyways, I think I should attend one of your classes. I feel bobo in english everytime I read your blog. Hehehe.

      Hi Em! I’m a dedicated teacher 🙂 I could be a monster when the situation calls for it though, haha. But it rarely happens (dati when I was pregnant with Raviv and didn’t know I was, yun sobrang MoNster ko nun).

      Sige, sit-in ka. Haha!

  2. Dew! I miss your posts. I hope all is well with you.
    just dropping by to greet you a happy mother’s day!

      Maqui! I miss writing too! Unfortunately, I’m sooo swamped with work. I teach intensely the whole day, and do administrative work afterwards. Hay, hirap! Happy Mother’s Day to us!!! I miss reading your blogs too. Hugs hugs, and hope to see you sometime soon!
