I need a little break from educational theory, just for a minute. Today has been a day of learning and trying to slot myself into what kind of teacher i want to become. I must say as confusing and complected and intertwining that pedagogy theories are, i love it! I could read this stuff all day. About how happiness in schools promotes a wonderful learning environment, how community spirit is the center of a well run school, how teaching is not telling, how students are precious little souls that need nurturing and guiding through an awfully awkward time of life.
I liked school. I was kind of smart. I had friends. SRC representative. And still i look back on that time as not that great. It was just weird, i had no idea of the person that i wanted to become. I cant remember very much actually, i am a very different person to that girl. High school is just pretty horrible. It probably didn't help that i was rather plump but that is a whole another story. All I have to say is thank you Mr Atkins... yep... i lost 25kg.
High school memories:
- The jeans that were super silky
- Denim overalls
- Purple Doc Martins
- Frizzy hair
What a big waffle that turned out to be!
The essay is calling.
Some philosophy for you to ponder, i love it. This one is going into the essay.
"No one is born fully-formed: it is through self-experience in the world that we become what we are."
