Did you say thank you to your teacher?

Did you say thank you to your teacher?

8I could assume that everyone had a most preferred teacher in life. We say in Spain that you will not be a good son until you become a father, and will not become a good father until you are a grandfather. Somehow it happens the same with teachers. 

One will not really understand what it means to be a good an appreciative scholar until you need to teach something.

As long as I know, to be a teacher in Japan is a very respectful and respected profession. Sadly enough, in countries like mine, it isn’t. It is well known the Spanish expression: “You are as poor as a school teacher”.

I suppose that in most of Western Countries use to be the same.

What we fail to understand is teachers are building the people who will run the world on 2030 TODAY.

In my country, after working hard at University to get the degree, they need to enter in a points draw, on which they are not able to fully choose where they are to give classes. Maybe they need to move some hundreds of kilometres from their town, adapt to a new neighbourhood, just for a scholar year, and move to the next destination, like gipsies, until they accumulate enough points due to years of service to choose where they are going to establish their home. If they are lucky.

In the mean time, with a short salary, most of the times still paying the career, out of their known surroundings, most of time home sick, above all this, they do their best to deal with bratty thugs to teach them, at least, something, and if not succeeding at first, redoubling efforts with the hope in the next class they will achieve to enlighten us.

This, my friends, is a vocation, a real one.

Above all, they know that their sleepless nights are due to children are not theirs, who will surely forget them completely, if not hating them.

Nevertheless, they go on, untiringly along years, with the hope that one, just one, will one day become a fruitful person, for his/her sake.

Sadly enough, most of the cases they will never really know.

I am fortunate as my parents taught me since I was very young to be thankful, and as I come from a very small village, I used to find my school teachers when shopping or taking a walk.

You cannot imagine what a happiness they showed for the only fact I remembered their names and their classes.

I brought my daughter to the same school I went, and it was an enormous pleasure to find them again, still there, fighting, older, but with the same fire in the eyes, the same devotion, vocation and will to help as much as they could to form children into fruitful people.

I had many teachers in my life. On professional school, at work, on seminars.

And always tried to make them understand their efforts were not in vain, that they really helped me to enhance, to grow, to improve.

No other better reward can be given to a teacher, because the work they do cannot be paid with money.

I never let pass the moment to be thankful to someone who has used his/her time, something they will never get back, for my profit, expecting nothing in return.

This is the point I am turning my head to @Ali Anani, and say:


Managing Partner

#11 Thankfulness is a practice that has two ways of enrichment. The one who receives it, has his self-confidence is increased, and the one who gives it, has double happiness. One, due to making happy someone who has deserved it, and two, because it gives you the feeling you have done the right thing.

Dear David Navarro L\u00f3pez A crucial conversation is a discussion between two or more people where stakes are high, opinions vary, emotions run strong, and the repercussions could be far-reaching.#7

@David Navarro Lopez, you caused me to reflect on those intersections of my life where others had great influence over my direction. I had several good teachers in school and my professional life. Unfortunately my younger years were filled with control issues that i have since dealt with, welllllll mostly dealt with. I have had the opportunity to thank some but not i would like too. Thanks for reminding me that where i am required a lot of people who took the time to share their wisdom.

A Spanish wrtiter, Baltasar Gracian https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltasar_Graci%C3%A1n ,wrote "Lo bueno, si breve, dos veces bueno" (Good things, if good, twice as good) Your comment is a gem, dear mohammed khalaf which I hope one day you use it to make a post of it. I got the feeling that although so much difference between us, there is a lot of affinity between us. This is the nice thing of Javier beBee Look forward to have more comments exchange with you

As I wake up and sleep chaotically I also today, so my glance of this buzz came by randomly. And what a surprise it proved to be. I still remember my last time I lectured at the University of Petroleum and Minerals that students left me a bilingual message stating "if somebody leaves some people when they could have made him stay with them then shame on those people". I didn't stay, but for more than thirty years this story is still vivid in my memory. I never took teaching as a full-time job since then. One reason is that teachers build futures, build knowledge, build hope and we deprive them of all. To sir with love is a mild version of what teachers suffer. Dear David Navarro L\u00f3pez- as much as you saddened me by reviving the tragedy of teachers; equally you filled me with pleasure by looking at me as a teacher. But mind you, you have taught me a lot and that being grateful and thankful are the greatest signs of self-assurance and confidence. You are a teacher with vision, dignity and when we alternate roles of being a teacher and then a student we may build a lasting friendship because we both live the bitter conditions teachers unduly have to go through. I say I am deeply moved by your buzz dear David and It is far greater to me than just a buzz. It shall keep buzzing the music of love in my heart.

Thank you in advance for your consideration, as it has been said, "tough times never last, but tough people do
