It's back to school tomorrow.

I don't really know how other teachers may be feeling about this, but I'm all shaky and nervous with the fact that I will be in front of 4 more groups starting monday. It's one of those moments when you question yourself about how you can become a better teacher compared to all your previous experience. I just hope I can do much better than last year.

This is one sight from the Middle School's Principal Office, and I love it. Resolution is not that good 'cause I took it with my cellphone.

I also wish to develop a sense of beauty appreciation in my students. Tips, anyone?

Your school is rather pretty! The architecture in my school is really aesthetically unappealing. :(

I think the ability to appreciate beauty is really innate and difficult to cultivate if one lacks it. It is a very noble ambition that you have - I do think it is extremely important that one knows how to admire beauty. Rodin said something along this line, "The world lacks not beauty but discovery." Try to open your students' hearts to be more aware of and receptive to the beauty either visible or hidden around them. I'm sure you'll find many ways to do it. For example, you can share a poem you love, and tell them why you find it so lovely, etc. You'll be a great teacher. :)
