Well, today will be a really busy day. This evening I am giving the presentation of the courses for the next academic year 2018/2019, and it’s really exciting. Seeing old students who just come to say hello and keep in touch and meeting new people, prospective learners who are trying to make up their minds about joining us.
What I love is the buzz of excitement, starting anew; and it always IS a new beginning, however many times you have taught the basics. The enthusiasm of your new learners fires you up and fills you with that get-up-and-go feeling that will last through most of the year.
I am an enthusiastic teacher, energy-driven, and I need to be because a lot of people come to their lessons after a hard day’s work. Learning must be something that makes them feel better about their lesson, their day, and ultimately, about themselves.
