This year I had only one class as a maincourse teacher, which was an opportunity for me to pay attention to each of the students.I taught 27 students for 20 hours in a week. The age group was between 17-19. They all left their hometowns for the university. The first teacher they met was me. They’re striving to adapt to new life. Throughout the term, we got to know each other and had great relationships. I’m trying to care with my students as much as possible. For me, as a teacher, I’m not only teaching English but also touching their hearts. Besides, outside the classroom, most of them shared their life stories with me or problems they had. I had to deal with them, as well. At the end of the term, it was hard for me to leave the class, but proud of them because of their effort. I pushed them to study a lot, maybe harder than anybody else. Most of the time they complained about assignments. However, they realized that they made great progress with only four months. The board above, they prepared for the last lesson will be with me forever. Important thing is to leave a smile on their faces when they remember you anytime in the future. I’m sure most of you have the same stories as me. How did you feel when you had to leave your students whom you spent lots of time together? Some people think having intense sentiments towards students can be dangerous for teachers. What do you think?
I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
