Tribute to teachers...

11 de septiembre: Día del maestro

Todos nuestros maestros nos enseñaron ideas simples o complejas pero las que germinaron fueron aquellas que se plantaron sin censuras, sin presiones y con amor.

Decálogo del olvido
Muere en nuestra memoria:
1) El que no sueña
2) El que persigue el exitismo
3) El que no ríe
4) El que no se sorprende
5) El que se rinde
6) El que no lee
7) El que no llora
8) El que no crea
9) El que oculta la verdad
10) El que sólo busca el bien propio

Decálogo de la trascendencia
Permanece en nuestro recuerdo:
1) El que lucha
2) El que espera
3) El que siembra optimismo
4) El que proyecta
5) El que comparte
6) El que confía
7) El que escucha
Vive por siempre en nuestro corazón:
8) El que ama
9) El que entrega
10) El que enseña

  1. It is quite difficult to be a good teacher, extremely hard to be a very good teacher and nearly impossible to be an excellent teacher – nobody is perfect. The conditions to be met are numerous and rarely found – all together – in the same person: widespread background knowledge, up-to-date expertise and specialization, pedagogical resources, organizational skills, leadership, love for the students, capacity for teamwork, honesty, a sense of humour, and countless other abilities. Perhaps we could single out hard work as the most important. To do a good job, like in other walks of life, teachers have to work hard.
