Mulling About My Job

Posted Monday, October 21, 2013 by deehan1914

I have been working here for over three years now and what is really making me stay longer is my fondness to my students. I know that other schools are just a stone's throw away and I am positive that I can easily land a job in another company but the mere thought of not being able to see my students from GNA/ENC again is just depressing beyond words. I am sure I have a serious case of separation anxiety.  ;b

I could still remember how I was interviewed and how equally nervous I was when I first officially had my lessons. I don't think there were just butterflies in my stomach, I think there were dinosaurs or something notorious than them waging war inside. Haha! I think I got bowel movement troubles because of that. Looking back, I am sure I matured. I know I became better than my old self and I think this is the best way how a person should compare himself- comparing your present self with the previous" you".

I am also very happy that I really received very good training here.

I also like that this job is beautifully sharpening my command in English. I also love that I get to read a lot. It's like getting paid while reading!

The pay isn't as sky-high as Lada Gaga's heels but it's somehow comfortable.
Of course, I want a better paying job and I am sure that I might transfer soon but one thing will remain constant- I will still work even as a part-time GNA teacher. In that case, it's not 100% goodbye after all!
The major drawback here is just the pay but it's not really very very low. It's just that I have greater needs.

This job made me finish graduate school. It made me afford tuition fees and field trips. Hence, I am really really very thankful of this job.

I'll keep moving forward!

These are the moments that I'll remember all my life and I could not ask for more!

had a great dinner at Hukad in Abreeza

With sweet Emiko!

Teacher Brix and Emiko

Our bags were checked at People's Park

On her next visit, I will show her the real Philippine Eagle!

The greatest proof that she really reached Davao.

She asked if it's okay to sit here before the photo was taken. I was wondering why she asked. Of course! It's sooooo okay!

She said the mayor looks like Teacher Arbie!

She wanted to bring these orchids to Japan but she can't.

All smiles!
