Most of stuff I have done, if I looked back and think again, those are miracle to me already. I have never expected I would live here when I was kid, never expect to do stuff like flat my lot, grow kitchen vegetable, or lost everything in a house fire and recover from nothing.
Confront a person with the danger of death and he will fight to live, I always believe this quote.
Love to be around children and to be a part of their maturation. Children are so uncanny and naïve that it helps me to remember that life does not have to be completely serious. I cannot imagine another job that would keep me young at heart. Not only do I like the fact that children keep you young, but a career in teaching does not end your education.
Talking about subjects like math and science, I think as long as I can teach with passion, I should be ok, encourage rather than say:” you will never learn!”
I think my teaching style probably will be east meets west, balance between yin and yang, learning with kids together, enjoy the joy of growing together and appreciate each others.
Talking about location of teaching, I don’t even mind to teach in Queen Charlotte, I think I am the only Asian who is into native art and culture. I found a lot of similar between traditional Chinese mythology and native stories.
Ps: I often joke that I am Inuit just to be buddy with fellow crab fishermen…
when crisis strikes, there are always opportunities in the hood.
