i'm really passionate about my job because its allowed me to grow as an individual, and not only acquire new skills, but has given me the space to practice them.
i've always liked to teach. it's the love of being able to interact with others, entertain them (usually by clowning around) while at the same time, hopefully, imparting some knowledge to the young minds who are always open and filled with wonder. i've spent much of my youth working with young children in early education and i've always felt that the experience was very rewarding. Especially when the young ones reward you with hugs and kisses, and pure adoration! *love*
I've had to stop teaching wee ones in this current job, as i just couldn't find the time. but i've been able to explore the world of androgogy (as opposed to pedagogy), and today, i completed my first full-fledged facilitation session. of course with the help of an excellent co-facilitator.
I had a fabulous time, but better than that, i really felt that i was able to make a connection, and helped encourage my participants to think about how they can make positive change in their areas of work. I didn't get any hugs and kisses, but their thanks was more than enough to make me feel just as rewarded.
