Teacher's Cry

I love to teach. I always go to my class with enthusiasm. God has given me the ability to speak well and I don't shudder when I am required to address a crowd.

I love to look at my students in the eyes. I want to get them ready for my lesson and I want to know what they think about my lesson.

I test them with questions. I want to get them involved in my lesson and I want to understand what they have learned.

I can never let a lesson goes by without imparting some practical knowledge to these young ones. God has put me here for another day to deliver His message to them that they may live well.

I don't joke much but I do have a few tricks up my sleeve when my students get restless. My regret is that I can't find suitable jokes and humors related to my lesson.

I used to give my students a 5-minute break after sometime. I want them to relax, to stretch themselves, to look around and talk with their friends or to go to the restroom.

I love to summarize my lesson at the end of the session. I see the importance of reminding them the lessons they have learned.

My only regret is that I cannot sit with them in the hall during their public examination, to give them the boost and the confidence they need. LOL.

Students, do you understand the teacher's cry?
