The Challenges (and joys!) Of Teaching

Maths yesterday! Yeah, fun. Especially when you’re the teacher. I really struggle with teaching, but it’s my dream and I won’t give up. Ever. My students are pretty good actually. Here they are teaching Dad some of the stuff they’ve learnt, and he’s probably forgotten!

What are your dreams for the future? Do you ever teach? Are you enjoying these posts about my life? It makes my day to hear from you all! 

Xxx ❤️❤️❤️

  1. Do you want to be a teacher, you’d make a really good one. I teach the girls in my class when they need help, the boys are too stuck up to ask! And yes, these life posts are greatly enjoyable.

    • Yes, I do. It’s a massive responsibility and commitment, especially as I’m still learning myself. Thank you for saying that! That’s really kind of you to teach the girls in your class. Haha, that’s boys for you! 😉 I’m glad you’re enjoying them, Emily. Thank you so much!

    • Yes, but they are my siblings. 😁 I have taught other kids though. It’s a massive challenge, but good fun! ❤❤❤ Teaching is amazing, that’s why, even though it’s not my natural strength, I want to do it for the rest of my life. Thanks so much, May! Tons of love…xxx

  2. I think it’s great that you’re going to be a teacher when you grow up. Like May said, we wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for our teachers. I personally want to be a lawyer when I grow up.

  3. You’re doing a great job Gracie. I dreamed of helping people, but wasn’t sure how I would do it. Well, after a lot of hard work and exploring lots of different things I’ve achieved my dream. I love being a nutritional therapist and helping peoplei improve their health and without that I wouldn’t be at ANH. Do keep dreaming, exploring and working hard. You will achieve your dream xxx

      • Haha!!! 😉 XD Haha! I can’t imagine being the oldest!! I LOOOVE IT! Being the youngest… well, obviously the youngest kids are spoiled ( 😉 😉 ) but I love being the baby of the family! 😉 Haha! If I could have another sibling, I think it would be an older sibling, because the thought of having younger sibling scares me almost!! I would feel like I was being an example for them and had to teach them and stuff… I’m so used to being the youngest, it would be weird having a younger sibling! Do you like being an oldest?
        I mean, there are a couple downfalls of being the youngest.. I think most youngest children feel like they have to be better than their older siblings, and that since they are the youngest, they aren’t taken as seriously when they try to say something…but usually it just makes me (the youngest ;)) mad and then I’m bossy…. Anyways, a lot of times people don’t think of your siblings as better than you..but youngest kids (and maybe middle and oldest do too…) tend to think that way, so they want to be cooler than their siblings. I’ve only felt a tiny taste of this, but I’ve learned by now not to act so selfish and I really have AMAZING awesome sisters that don’t leave me out of anything. I don’t have any brothers. Just two older sisters! 😉

      • Hehe! I get what you’re saying. I’m the opposite. I like the responsibility (most of the time), but I would also like to have someone to look up to and learn from, etc. It’s so cool to have a conversation with you!

      • Haha! Wow… Yeah. I mostly like responsibility. I like it when someone trusts me with a big job that I know I can do. I mean, I think I know some responsibility, because I have 8 pigs, a dog, a horse, and 3 fish, so I have to do their chores, look after them and feed them. (not always my horse because he gets fed a bale with the other horse in his pen) I also do the rest of the dog chores in the evening…. I enjoy it most of the time…except for in these 100 degree days lately… 😉
        It really is cool!! An oldest child, and a youngest talking together! 😉 XD Most of my friends that are actually my age are oldest fact it’s very rare that I find one who doesn’t have younger siblings. I don’t mind it though, because I love having older siblings, and it builds my love for little kids so I love any chance I get to babysit.

      • Wow, you must love having all those animals. I’ve had a dog, three goats and two donkeys on the past, as well as various ducks and chickens. I used to live on a farm. My family were there for nine years!

        I love little children too! 😊😊😊

      • I do! Animals are great! I mean, there are definitely days where I don’t feel like going outside to do their chores, but it’s totally worth it in the long run! 😉
        Oh cool! I wish I could have a donkey! XD Haha! And I really wanted ducks for a while too! 😉
        WOW! That would be so different…to live on a farm and then not… Phew….

  5. I’m a teacher! When I was a child, I was always the teacher in the games that we played, but I gave up on the idea because I didn’t want to work in a school or to teach children. Now I’m a teacher and I work with adults who are learning English! I love it! This taught me never to give up on my dream, even if things don’t work out as you thought they would in the beginning! Have fun with your maths class 🙂
