Friendship is not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything. – Muhammad Ali
Without friends, what a dull and boring time LET review would be. And with each LET coaching batch at MindGym, especially this one, peer review buddies, lunch chums, FB friends and even LET intimacies (haha!) — happened so naturally for many although we didn’t require forming review groups as in past LET batches.
Even our differently-abled Romela (visual) and KenKen (hearing and speech) were able to blend well; they found friends who helped them understand review challenges and whom they inspired to work harder to pass.
Having a 6 ft 4in tall PBA basketball player Sar in the batch hasn’t been intimidating at all for the petites. Even our very first reviewee from the IP (indigenous people) group Teduray, Greg, mingled well.
Gellie, even had an instant dozen choco roses from the men in the batch, including coach Albert, given a la coutillion “anything goes” dance.
I am sure what we saw in MindGym’s customary circle of love, good night hugs, and warm handshakes mattered much in giving LETers their needed self-esteem and self-confidence to face the LET.
Lesson learned: Befriend your coach, your LET-mate, you fellow teacher-to-be and those who share your interest in making the world a better place to live in. Having them as friends would guarantee that your teaching-learning-life journey will never be solitary in good or in bad times.
I have savoured many moments with the batch and what I shared here are just some.
