SENSE OF FULFILLMENT
EDELINA G. MALLARI
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.
