Guess what, I haven't really thought about the BT (Brain Tumour) this week.
I've been busy :-)
And happy :-)
I got a bit frustrated last week when I helped out in a classroom and had double vision the entire lesson, but I did it. I can remember being a teacher that was able to do 100 things at once. I really wanted to be back there.
I guess though, I think I might be more efficient now. No mucking around, help the children, make sure the children understand and get them to ask plenty of questions so I can ensure some true learning is taking place. I have to act this way so that I can get the best from them and myself before fatigue sets in (for both myself and children LOL).
Not sure if it will make me a better teacher, but I surely have more empathy for children/people trying to achieve their goals. I certainly know how difficult it can be and the understanding you need from others.
This week I'm thankful for the chance to teach again. A couple of hours a week of volunteer work has been so soul satisfying. Lots of people have shown that they still believe in my skill and ability (strokes, operations, few dead brain cells, brain fatigue and all). I'm very thankful to all those people in my life♥.
Thankful also to the cute faces I see everyday...
