Teaching Brings Me Happiness
Teaching brings me a lot of happiness. It is a profession that I feel I am really good at doing. I work with adults who are learning English but I come from a background in elementary education. My lessons are sometimes more kid-like. The funny thing is, my adult students seem to love these kind of activities. Last week, my morning class had the job of working with a partner to create competitive business cards for two companies of their choice. They spent a lot of time working on this project using the markers and colored pencils they brought from home and they turned out great. Next week we will do some other activities with these cards. On Thursday, my evening class participated in an Easter egg hunt. Inside each egg was an Easter related word along with a piece of candy. They excitedly searched for their eggs. The best part was how they worked together to teach each other the vocabulary they didn't know and then wrote interesting stories about Easter with their words.
