Those Who Can't---TEACHCreated by:
Disregard the title... because I don't believe that at all. In fact, I am posting this because last night I got contacted by an old schoolmate who worked with me in the Student Council and she asked me if I was interested in teaching a few classes in the University she works in. Anyway, ever since I was student I dreamt of teaching. I loved reporting. I loved discussing in front of the class and I admired my brilliant professors (and hated the lazy ones--hihi). That, of course, remained a dream because I have not really made any active effort pursue it. I get curious and I ask "professor" friends how it is--but I've never bothered to take a step closer to this dream, until today. Actually, I feel that the opportunity is coming to me, in a this-is-destiny-on-your-doorstep kind of way, so now I'm confused.
At the moment I work 4 days in my practice and then I do 2 days in a multi-specialty clinic. I'm thinking I can let go of one day in my own clinic, to devote to teaching, but I'm not really sure. I know the pay for teaching is not good---but it's not really about that at all. For me it's like ticking something off on your BUCKET LIST, you know? When I was in College I used to tutor young Korean students and I had so much fun. I know I would enjoy it too, but this is a whole new commitment.
What do you think?
