Educator’s Footnote 2018

Teaching within a school setting has always been something i really enjoy doing as something like a meaningful, somewhat even joyful, distraction from the mundanes of an artist. Nevertheless teaching can be an extremely humbling experience from time to time and certainly not an easy task🙃😁

It sometimes feels like as though going back in time again as that small little boy i was used to be– but of course now as an adult mentor/elder to them its no longer quite the same🤣😜😝🤗

In retrospect, often in fact the school is not just a place of learning and nostalgia but its also a very vibrant place of constant new self discoveries and even self-renewal and/or re-charging🙏🏻😉😊

In the past i was used to be so routine in posting every single pic of my students’ artwork here. However now, due to time constraints, i am required to be more selective in my postings so i have no choice but to choose only some, and not all, to show😞😔😓

So sorry and apologies to my dear children who are closely following all my blog posts and those who even come up to me in public and greeted me, you all really touched my heart! Sorry if i couldn’t remember you immediately! 😘😘

Also, to those of you children who have actually found your own ways to my webpage via google (not that i am surprise;P) its been such privilege and joy teaching you all!😁😃😄😆

BIG thanks and BIG shout out!!!😃😆 Also kudos to the teachers who have been patient enough to guide, impart and share your knowledge and experience with me in the course of my past 5 years educating art. Sometimes I feel the day-to-day job of teacher is really not easy at all so i have the greatest respect for full-time teachers and salute to you all!:)
