SENSE OF FUL­FILL­MENT

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

In a few days from now, the cur­rent school year is about to end or it has ended in some schools. For stu­dents, they have hur­dled an­other level in their aca­demic lives. Many of them are ex­cited for the sum­mer break as this means they can rest from the daily rig­ors of be­ing stu­dents.

For the grad­u­ates, this means ei­ther a tran­si­tion from one level to an­other or a time to en­gage into job-hunt­ing ac­tiv­i­ties. Fin­ish­ing an aca­demic year in­deed of­fers stu­dents a sense of ful­fill­ment as they hur­dle a year in their lives in­side class­rooms.

A sense of ful­fill­ment is a sense of con­tent­ment. Its means one has done some­thing or ac­com­plished for him­self or for oth­ers. Stu­dents who passed to an­other level of learn­ing have this sense of ful­fill­ment.

Teach­ers on the other hand, have this sense of ful­fill­ment too while be­ing cog­nizant of the fact that they have made their stu­dents sur­vive a school year study­ing and mak­ing them­selves learned. They take pride in their stu­dents grad­u­at­ing and the fact that they have been in­stru­men­tal in the learn­ing process.

As men­tors, teach­ers have the honor that they form part of the ed­u­ca­tion of their stu­dents which are ex­pected to have brighter fu­tures be­cause of their learn­ing.
