I'm coming close to the end of my university course, in about 7 1/2 weeks I'll be a primary school teacher. I've never as much appreciated how polished the game needs to be! Glance at a detailed page to memorize activity sequences and dialogue points for the hour, learn an easy explanation of the scientific reasoning of the content on the process you've had to present, and don't forget to always keep control of facial expressions - 'those' comments are sure to actually be made!!

Enter student at the aikido dojo.

Learn to learn, learn to question again, learn to give in and admit you're so just not in control. Let others guide you and practice humility with a childlike faith in the wisdom around you. Be soft, flow, give in, breath and enjoy just trying again and again and again.

These are the two faces, the two faces behind the single mask. I think both are there always, both should be nurtured to keep one from getting anorexic enough to unbalance the whole of you. The learner and the teacher, fused. Turn to one side and your mentors stand there, ready to guide you. Turn to the other and you are guiding someone else.

Changing into my gi is the heart of this long moment for me, of putting one to bed and bringing the other out to light. A transition and celebration that brings a sense of ease, peace.

Hi Lin, I think that with thoughts like that you will become a great teacher putting yourself in the place of the student in your case children, that is the secret of understanding people looking things from the point of view of the other person. My daughter is beginning her 2nd year in the same career, she loves children and teaching too. Looking forward to read your experiences in class as a teacher best Carina
