Labs skolotājs tiešām ir kā svece, kurš apgaismo un ved citus pa šo ceļu. Strādājot pirmsskolas izglītības iestādē vislielākais prieks ir redzēt bērna izaugsmi, prasmju attīstību, zinot to, ka tu esi bijis tas, kurš bērnu ir virzījis šajā virzienā. Dodoties praksē sākumskolā bija prieks dzirdēt bērnu uzslavas, redzēt viņu interesi acīs , realizējot un vadot interaktīvas mācību stundas. Šajos brīžos es sapratu, ka esmu īstajā profesijā un darbs ar bērniem ir mans aicinājums. Skolotājam ir liela ietekme un nozīme bērna dzīvē, tāpēc mums - skolotājiem, jābūt kā labam paraugam kuram var sekot un no kura var macīties.

The joys of being an adult educator is that adults mainly choose to attend/ be in a learning environment. The knowledge they acquire assists them in getting a better job, being upskilled and in many instances having access to more education. Basic skills teaching in particular is very powerful in terms of opening up new opportunities and ways for adults to run their lives. I have been at the end of adult learning for many years and this has improved my understanding of the world as well as upskilled me. I have also taught adults and have experienced the sheer joy of the aha moment when the learning makes sense in their world. Amazing feeling.
