842. Good job! ...after a lot of practice

One day teacher of English B said to teacher of English A, “I do know you’re a novice teacher, and a rookie among the students of your large classes, and that you think all’s going bad, and... etc. But I also know you’re striving to improve teaching and have the teens actually learn English. Don’t me break down. Sláinte!

The beginnings of our career (of any career) are tough. Each thing you do in your classes, however, with your effort and God’s help, is a step forward – hopefully. With some perspective of weeks and months and years you will see both failures and successes in a more objective view.

Don’t think now this is not your career, at least try more and more. As well don’t let successes put you up onto a plinth where you consider yourself as someone, say, like an ace at your profession: remember you’re beginning. Somehow celebrate your success, but don’t let it go to your head.” / Photo from: ? . Sláinte, you may know it, is an Irish (Gaelic) term, like ‘Cheers!’, ‘Come on, cheer up!’
