NEVER EVER eh?
“I go to school, but I never learn what I want to know.”
I came across this statement in twitter recently. It was a random post during Teacher’s day…(What an irony don’t you think?)Though I do not know the person who tweet this but the sentences petrified me
As a result I became a bit anxious. I was hoping to read students mind and I wish I can be a psychic as well. All my students’ faces keep coming inside my mind, especially those quiet ones. Suddenly I feel worry. I presume I am not a fair teacher (as I imagine) after all.
Yet I try hard to be fair, mind you…Come to think of it, I have my favourites among students in a class but I always repress myself from calling their names all the time. I always thought I am being very fair. But after I came across this I suddenly feel that I may not be such a fair teacher yet. Who knows I may have this kind of student among my (approximately) 40 students in each class, each year?
I worry and I am hoping this was and is and will not be such a case throughout my career…
This word is rather strong right? Isn’t it such silly things if one doesn’t learn what he or she want to know throughout years of school? Don’t tell me this fella actually did not want to learn ABC’s and numbers? Did not want to learn music, languages and numbers which I always thought are the fundamentals in one’s life? Or is it not? Really this amuses me a lot…
Never learn what I want to know?
Hmmm…Well, exactly what do you really want to learn student? Are you sure of what you are saying? If you do then you are actually giving each and every one of your teachers (from kindergarten to primary and secondary and perhaps those teaching you tertiary education)..such a denial statement???Are you stating that all of them taught you forcibly? Gosh..this is confusing and funny to some extent..may I? …LOL
Never learn what you want to know eh? Then I have one thing to say..If you feel this way then just don’t learn..simple isn’t?...
