Diary of a Preschool Teacher
See the future through their eyes…
By Maryan Tou Jubran
Because it is mysterious, it will never be known but could be famous, we never choose it but we can enjoy achieving it, it is our destiny… Have you ever looked deeply inside a child’s eyes? If you did then you know what I mean, if not then you have to try that.. Behind them, there is a story, it might be happiness, sadness, love or hate, success or might be failure, all what you need to read that story is a code, a simple code… I do not have children yet, when I have my own I will be well trained to deal with them, because being a MOM is not an easy job, plus we can rank it as “The highest salaried job”.
Being a preschool teacher made my words go out, I feel now I like to write from time to time, I deal with 13 children in my class room, and almost 40 at the whole school, each one has a way different personality, hobbies, and thoughts. Of course because they are building their future now, according to what they like, dislike, what they hear or think. The doctor’s son wants to be a pediatrician, manager’s daughter wants to manage as well, even some of them, they dream to be Supermen! Everything is expected and nothing impossible!
Let that energy go out, listen to them, to their fake stories and imaginations, never stop them and never yell, but do not spoil them you will be tired!!
Those pure eyes are the future, and by their tiny hands they can draw it, it might be green with your help, plant roses around the road they give a nice smell, and would be wonderful if you can put a scented candle beside each rose; it can help by giving the scented air and also will lighten their road…
