A teacher’s thoughts

Although a lot has been happening here, just lately I haven’t been posting to this blog. I have, however, been working hard at school, all the while reading and reflecting on the incredible experiences I am having as a teacher in Thailand. This article from the Guardian, directed primarily at teachers returning from holidays, appeals to me because of the author’s humility and dedication.

High school students are not always easy to teach, even in Thailand (despite its reputation for respectful subservience).  While the behaviour of the senior students is usually no less than angelic, unfortunately at other times a couple of my classes have resembled a minor battlefield.  The article helps to keep it all in perspective.

  1. As they say ‘teaching is a calling never just a job’. If you are into it, it really is the most rewarding job in the world, if you are not into it, it is hell!

    Sounds like you are doing a great job.
