Well, that was "fun."

I got out of my first class a while ago. Massacre, pain, suffering. At least, that's what I think.

The students just kept staring at me and one of them kept laughing, which made me feel uncomfortable and I just burst out and asked him: Is there something funny?

I think I lost my cool. I thought I had it under control. Hi, I'm freaking out.

My respect for teachers has gone up. You have to have real thick skin in order to be a teacher...

it gets a lot easier after some time. you just have to get to know who your students are and where they come from. no one said it was easy work but it is gratifying in the end. it just takes one student to make your year worth it all. beleive me, i know.

There's always one idiot, but for every idiot, there are 3-4 cool students who make an effort and make it all worthwhile.

Don't stress it, and have fun.
