Teaching Again!

Sometimes I still wonder at how excited I get about teaching. I have a very vivid memory of a teacher in grade school asking our class what we wanted to be when we grew up, and in my head, I told myself "Anything but a teacher!"

Many many years later, I found myself - you guessed it - teaching. More than simply doing a job, I actually enjoyed doing it! Coming from a "teaching family," I suppose it is not really that much of a surprise. That reflection on not wanting to be a teacher was probably the rebel in me.

In any case, you all probably know that I left my day job as an English teacher last year. I have found myself missing it every now and then, so when a friend (who works for a relocation services company) offered me a part-time job teaching Business English to expats here in the Philippines, I didn't really hesitate.

Last week, I hauled my stuff to the next city to give my first lesson. It was great and tiring at the same time. It's not a "real" job as I only have one student who has a lesson once a week. I manage everything - lesson plans, reports, billing, and so on - so there is a little more work involved. Heck, I might even need to get document management software to help me get things organized!

Still, it is worth it - both in terms of pay and self-achievement. I guess teaching does run in the family. ;)
