The Blind Bandit

« on: August 20, 2011, 02:47:18 AM »

My time in college has always been a time of confusions about what i really am called to do. Recently however, after much reflection, prayer and consultations with our parish priest, I have felt the call to be a teacher. I feel like teaching is a job I would love, and that I can be genuinely be capable of being a good "foster father" figure to my future students. I want to be a good teacher, who will encourage great potential in my students and give them the fatherly boost they need. I really am so happy that finally I've been able to slowly discern my calling. Yet, I remained concerned that this may simply be the whispers of the demons of despondency, as right now my grades are terrible. But I do know for sure that I am not happy where I am right now (Political Science). While I like the social sciences, I don't think i can see myself serving in the academe 4-5 years from now. I feel like I would rather help people do stuff like that in the future, than be the one actually doing it. I pray though that this call is genuine, and that this is what God wills for me, that I become a good, if not a great teacher.

Please remember this sinner in your prayers.. I really hope that this time, I've found the place where I can plant my two feet and grow.

Glory to God, indeed!

Teaching is a wonderful occupation within which to serve and make a positive difference (and to learn patience, humility, and so on). Based on what you have written here, you have the right attitude to become a great teacher. May the Lord guide you!
