Organize & Manage Child Development? … we may never exactly know “how” if we don’t really understand the “WHO” that we are! — don’t you think so?
Naïve, eloquent, responsible, intelligent, humble, energetic, lovable, simple, hardworking, enthusiastic, always understanding responsible & approachable, talented, helpful, beautiful, thoughtful, reliable, inspired, gorgeous, “mabait”, “mahinhin”, “mayaman”, adorable, charming, intimate, friendly, amiable, nice, nurturing, keen, attentive, tolerable, yieldy, flexible, jolly, organized, merciful, young, natural, “tahimik”, simple, “malumanay”, obedient, “silent worker”, systematic, “beautiful inside-out” … could you identify yourself from these characteristics? After introducing yourselves and giving your names the acronym that would tell about you, could you still recall what you said “you are”?
Having been exposed to different factors while you grow up as an individual, and now that you are already teachers to whom your students/pupils look up, how then would you aid each of them to likewise manage their development if you haven’t really understood how you addressed and still address yours?
And so, let us grab this chance for a SELF-APPROXIMATION!
Why not pause for a while and ask yourselves “WHO AM I?”
Think of “a symbol”, something personal at that and draw it on a sheet of paper. Be aware on what part of the paper you placed your symbol and tell what it means. How do you feel about such symbol?
Our purpose for doing this? … We have to see for ourselves what we have — so that we would know what we could share!
Yes, if only we could approximate ourselves that well, we could then be a great “cure” in making each child understand “the person that they are?” — all because we know “THE WHO THAT WE ARE!” #ma’amgail
