one thing was that I did not have a computer and at the beginning I was worry about completing my essays , homeworks . It was a challenge to plan my clases for my colleagues also how to motivate myself even though some negative comments from some classmates of course I learned first there are always good people who helped you thanks to Amanda because she borrowed me her laptop to show a presentation I had, also that you can get whatever you want if you work hard and thanks God , my Lord was with me and the TESOL CERTIFICATE was something he allowed to get .All those challenges helped me to learn about life, teaching and learning
the challenges were planning the classes not because they were something difficult but the thing was they needed to be WAKTed and SMARTA but at the end it was more than worth it. Well these things were of such help because now classes are more really spiced up because some ingredients were missing. Now my classes are like that special dish that has taste and everybody wants to try it.
I‘ve shared the learnt with my friends, colleagues and everyone who wants to be more compasionate and humanistic
Learning that in every teacher and student and most of all in every human being there is always a green and a purple area that we need to learn to recognize and respect. There are many things we teachers would like to change; however, we cannot do much if we don't create the environment and context for that change to happen.
Thanks for being willing to share your thoughts and experiences with us!
