Subbing

kay bilis talaga ng panahon. akalain mong malapit na palang mag April. anyway, this month i started working again in the education field. i work as a substitute teacher. so far super enjoy naman ako. madali lang kasi ang trabaho tapos gusto ko pa yung ginagawa ko. at syempre naman sobrang mas okay ang sweldo kesa sa video store, which i am still doing. para naman may weekend gig kahit papano. gas money din yun. kumbaga yung nakukuha ko dun, yun na yung allowance ko. the rest, for my bills and for my future needs. naks. talagang may ganon? ok din tong substitute teaching gig eh, i get to experience all grade levels from Kinder to 8th grade. high school di ko kakayanin. nung nag sub ako for an 8th grade class, after 3 hours with them, alam kong di ko kakayanin. mas makukulit pa kesa sa mga maliliit na bata.

anyway ulit, nabanggit ko dito sa blog ko before na may dalawang test ako na kelangan i-take at ipasa in order for me to get my permanent teaching license. so far i've taken the first one. next month ko pa malalaman ang resulta (namaaannn..major gudlak!) at yung pangalawa next month na din kelangan i-take. hayyy parang walang katapusan. pag napasa ko both i can apply for my teaching credentials, then hopefully get an actual teaching job (which is sobrang hirap sa bansang itoh at the moment! omg.). pagkatapos nun, i can have my own classroom. yes! well, sana pumasa muna.

yun lang muna ang update. babush!

FE

2nd Grade Male Student: Ms. P, do you know what FE is?

Me: No, what do you mean by FE? What's FE?

Student: It's iron!

Me: Ohhh... F E. Yes, you're right. It is iron.

Student:  Yeah..from the table of elements!

Me: Wow...very smart!

Ms. P

last friday i had my first ever substitute teaching assignment. bigla kong namiss ang classroom. bigla kong namiss mga bata. anyway, 2nd graders ung nakuha kong assignment that day. kakatuwa. ang kukulit, pero maayos na makipag usap kahit papano.

Patrick: Ms. P, i'm reading a third grade book and i'm on chapter 3. no one else has a third grade book.
Me: Good for you Patrick!

Corynn: Welcome to our school (then hugs me)
Me: Awww.. thank you sweetie.
Corynn: You're a nice teacher.
Me: Thank you. I try.

Me: Okay boys and girls. Today, we're going to write about carousels--what you felt when riding a carousel and what you saw around you when you rode a carousel.
Students' responses: food! monkey! zebras! bunny rabbits! people walking around!
Me: you guys see animals when riding a carousel?!
Students: yeah! at the zoo!
Me: I don't think they have carousels at the zoo.
Students: yeah they do.
Me: Oh okay, maybe they do.

Me: Okay so what did you feel when you were riding a carousel?
Students' responses: fun! happy! joyful! excited! peaceful! excellent! dizzy! vomiting!
Me: Wow, such big words boys and girls!
