…said all the mothers yesterday in the Exhibition practice session at 8 in the night, when I was breaking my brains to make the kids understand what the whole project was about.
It wasnt easy handling 8 kids with their own temperaments, and 8 mothers with their own temperaments as well. But I think I did well.
All the mothers unanimously agreed that I am teacher material *laughs away to glory*
This was said for someone who does not even have the patience to stand in the line and get a burger for herself!
But guess, yesterday was one of the better days. I cajoled, scared, screamed, laughed, loved, explained and had fun with the kids.
They found me funny and weird and that did the trick I think. I quizzed them, I made them repeat after me, I clapped for them and I made them laugh as well!
A mother said ‘You are in the wrong profession. You should be a teacher. Kids will benefit so much from you!’
Another told me to start tution classes.
A third told me to take her daughter home and make her study everyday 🙂
In short, NOW I realised that my mother is such a superb person. She touched the lives of 100s of students and taught day in and day out.
I give it to the school teachers. Big fat salutes to them and shashtang namaskarams! They are really a great breed!
