Mommy Moments - School Days

mommy moments

TGIF! ohh yeah and its mommy moments time. My buckaroo still too young for school and we never send him to day care either. So, for this week mommy moments theme " School days" I would like to feature my old grade 5 pupils back at the mountain school when I was still teaching. Im guessing, they're probably in college right now. They were my last batch of kids at the mountain school before I got transferred to the city. I missed my job and be around with these 60 or 70 yamukmuk kids every year hehehehe. Good ol' days!
Imagine these kids would got up at 5:00 in the morning, do their chores and at 6:00 am get ready for school or should I say start walking going to school. We had our flag ceremony at 8:00 am but still some of them arrived late like 9;00 am. They live on the mountain and their only way of transportation is motorcycle (habal-habal). There were 11 teachers in this school, 9 of us were from the city. We stayed in school from Monday thru friday.

I just chatted at YM the other week with one of my 4th grade pupils in the city which is now in 2nd year in high school. Oh boy! Am I that old? grrrrr lol. Aggh! ouch! yikes I'm totally old, sluggish and tired now waaaaaa.
I wish and hope these kids will finish their education and be successful in the future.

Hi there,

I used to teach din, and like you i enjoy chatting with my former studs. The first batch of them are already adults and working na, so kahit papano i feel proud din.

God bless always!
