Skills so much needed

When you start every day wondering what skill you will have to learn today it doesn’t sound like a dream job but maybe this is what it is. Pushing yourself outside your comfort zone is not a walk in the park and definitely not a piece of cake for all I know.  While the school is almost over and the freedom that summer brings is so near you keep asking yourself Am I ever going to graduate? School of life is a bit tricky, it makes you learn a new lesson when you feel that you are done, finished and ready to face the challenges.

So much to live, so much to learn. Isn’t it frustrating and inspiring at the same time? Ambiguity of this question brings us closer to philosophers and thinkers that devoted so much time to discover the truth trying answer all the Why – questions.

What skills do you have to survive or what skills do you think you have? Recently I learned that my arsenal is not big enough, it’s a steep learning curve for sure but the good news is it’s never too late to learn.

Subbing

I love my new job because it’s very educational.  Meeting other teachers is a bonus.

On my first day the topic of all the classes was Private Prisons, I wasn’t sure what subject we did so I tried to remember my years in middle school, seems like I never heard of private prisons before in my life. That day I was lucky to do the same class 5 times in a row to remember at least something in the end.

The second day I was doing art classes, not what I had expected since it was middle school in a bad neighborhood but I met a really nice teacher there and it was what made my day. By the end of the day we felt like two legendary survivors recognizing each other’s incredible talent and strength.

The third day was Friday when I substituted for an ELA teacher in another middle school. I learned what detention means. The work was over by 1.30pm and I loved it.

Every day is different now, some of them are truly awesome and it makes up for the bad ones which seem to be not as awful after all. I loved high school PE classes, after middle schoolers any normal humans are perceived as angels. This is how you learn to appreciate things, I guess.
