I remembered the first Day I entered this school to have my OJT that was January 3, 2017.I encountered different kinds of students, I was with my fear back then on how will I deal with this kids and what strategies will I use to teach them.

During my stay in this school I must admit I faced a lot of challenges wondering if I can get through it but in the middle of those doubts and question, I have my inspirations to continue no matter how stressful it is because maybe I need to continue to get my diploma or maybe its also a way of learning new things as I share knowledge. I also found new friends and company in this school, my students? They were like my siblings they cheer me up with I start to worry about the lessons I’m glad I’ve met these people. Teaching is stressful and hard you should be dedicated to being able to pursue this job. As they say, it is the noblest profession of all and its true without Teachers there will be no doctors, lawyer, engineers, and others. I realized during my practice teaching that It’s never easy to be in this position especially in those time when you are speaking in front and yet nobody wants to lend an ear to you.. Most of all the discipline its hard to manage the behaviors these students have considering that they are modern people they usually want to do things without limits.

April 3, 2018, I came back to attend their graduation & moving up the program. I saw each of them step on the stage receiving their diplomas. I’m so proud of what they’ve achieved they are finally one step closer to their dreams. These students played an important role in my studies They pushed me to my limits let me get out of my comfort zone they showed me what life is. My short stay with them is worth remembering and they will be close to my heart always. Now it’s the time for them to spread their wings and fly high as the face the new chapter of their journey.

“In teaching others we teach ourselves.” I learned a lot thank you for the experience.

Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.”

― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I was browsing my news feed yesterday, This has been my habit lately starting my day by opening my social media accounts and looking up at what’s new.

I started scrolling my feed since I’m so excited to see my Friend’s status maybe they posted some pictures of them traveling or having a good time with someone else. As I was scrolling, I saw this post shared by a schoolmate. The post contains sadness I could say by his words that he is depressed. Depression is more than just having a low mood, This could affect your physical and mental health that can lead to suicide. This is not a joke I’ve been hearing a lot of cases of people who were defeated by demons inside them. Some are well-known celebrities this just explains that depression chooses no age or status it comes like a thief. I observed that as the days past by this issue becomes rampant, yet the society doesn’t pay so much attention to it.

People who are a victim of depression are those who are having difficulties on expressing their emotion, thoughts, and feelings verbally because they know that it’s better for them to keep it to avoid hearing judgments and hates. So, as a result, the thoughts stay on their minds killing them slowly. Most of them want to stop living to end the pain permanently. By this, I hope people would be mindful or maybe spare a little time to understand why a person especially teens and adults are feeling depressed.

For those people who are experiencing depression/anxiety, I hope they continue to find the reason to live and strong enough to ask for help. Being depressed is not a sign of weakness it is a sign of being healthy when your mind is telling you to give up. We should help those people who we know undergo this problem. Be a good listener, let them speak what they feel, give them bits of advice or you could cheer them up but never judge them.
