Still Teacher Dessa

Although i stopped teaching for more than 3 years, i still believe that i am TEACHER DESSA. At church, one of my ministries is to teach Sunday School at the kids dept. Unlike my old students at Prep Camp, i now handle primary level (6 to 7 years). Sunday School teachers get to teach once a month so we're all on rotation.
/
Every 3rd sunday of the month, i get a little bit of this:
/
1. teacher dessa: ok, check ko nga kung nakinig kayo. sino ang mother ni Jacob and Esau?
student: um, teacher.. pwede mother nalang ni Jesus? (so si mary lang ang natandaan nilang mother..ok now...)
/
2. teacher dessa: isa pa, when Jesus got upset at the temple becuase people were cheating and selling all sorts of animals to be offered, what type of bird were they selling?
student: chicken!
teacher dessa: um, starts with letter "D"
student: duck!
teacher dessa: sige na nga. pwede na rin. the answer is dove (diba pang tropang-trumpo kami?)
/
3.teacher dessa: draw pictures that show you are obeying God
-most of the students drew pictures of them praying, brushing their teeth, sharing, cleaning their room, etc.
- ito ang winner: he drew a picture of people with tanks and guns, shooting each other with bullets and blood. when i asked him why did it show obedience to God, he simply pointed to the dead people and said: "teacher, kasi masama yan mga yan eh. so ok lang barilin"... my gulaaaaay! of course i had to talk to the mom...

Last Sunday, we did a simple father's day art. Here are some pictures:

ako rin good girl din ako nun. i remembered when i was kindergarten a classmate of mine who's fat always bullied me coz i was very small and thin. one day during our recess time, i tied him with rope i got in our shop so that he couldn't stand...of course he cried like a cow coz he couldn't move and i laughed loudly like i like won a 1st prize in a contest. hence, after that, i had my very first visit in the principal's office with my mommy. Good girl noh..hehehe

nakakaloka ang mga comments ng students mo. pero in fairness pagbigyan natin sila kasi mga 6 years old lang yata ang mga ito. ikaw may reason magpatawad, ako medyo nahihirapan sa mga sitwasyong ganyan. makakita ka ba naman ng 21-year-old na estudyante na ganyan pa din ang sagot, ay nako sister, ikaw na mismo ang kukuha ng armalite! jok!

dessa girl said...

princess em: eerr.. good girl ka nga! grabe, bata ka palang halata na ang personality mo paglaki. harharhar! miss you girl.

fearless aileen:buahahaha!!.. napatawa mo ako dun ha..bilib nga ako sayo you can teach 21-year-olds.ang alam ko,the older the students are, the more pasaway!hala! liligawan ka pa nung mga yun!

fisherpau said...

Ako naman teacher dessa, I went to sunday school once lang...kasi medyo autistic ako growing up, so it was a little hard for me to communicate with other children...

but I love kids, I like nga to teach art classes sa public school sa village namin (or music class) kaya lang I don't know who to talk to... hay....

I always believe that I am a kid at heart... forever and ever and ever...

dessa girl said...

see, jo-lo? stya away from kuya chu. watson, ilayo mo yan si jo-lo at baka matuloy yang "gang" na yan! (yes, serious)

fisherpau. we are all kids at heart! no matter how big i get! bata parin akow!!!!

watson said...

Jo-Lo! Anong ginagawa mo rito! Uwi! Matulog ka muna! At ano yung sinasabi mong may multiple personality disorder ako!

dessa girl said...

sir nick! wag mo sha pagalitan please... he's too cute for you to stay mad at..

kay chu ka nalang magalit!

cherry-flavored ampalaya said...

teacher dessa, if ung students mo ay katulad ni chu, gagamit ka ba ng pamalo para ma-disiplinahan siya?

jo-lo, be a good boy and stay away from chu. you don't know where he's been. dirty yan.

chu, give jo-lo a chance to have a normal life. he will face the world and its problems soon enough.

nick, which personality am I talking to now?

dessa girl said...

cherry: pag si chu ang student, hindi lang pamalo. i will lock him iside the restroom, starve him, tie him up in the closet. etc. (feel free to use your imagination).. on second thought.. wag nalang pala. good boy si tonton before eh.

master CHU said...

bakit ako inaaway ng lahat? JO-LO!!!! wag ka makinig sa kanila. tuturuan kita mag-drive! ituturo ko sayo kung paano mo popormahan yung auto mo parang ginawa ko kay Anne Margarette (my lovely car that is!) tuturuan din kita kung pano magpa-bile sa daddy mo! bwahahahahahahaha!

Alam mo Ma'am Dessa pag ako naging student mo iuuwi mo ako sa sobrang ka-cutan ko. kasi nung bata ako WALA akong leeg sa katabaan!

master CHU said...

Hi Dessa,

I really like your Blog.

Some thoughts this is what my teacher taught me about life. I hope u too like it.....This is about getting marriage. The actual meaning of Getting Married.

In the first round of the marriage ceremony, the Lord sets out His Instructions for performing the daily duties of married life. Instead of the hymns of the Vedas to Brahma, embrace the righteous conduct of Dharma, and renounce sinful actions. Meditate on the Lords Name; embrace and enshrine the contemplative remembrance of the Naam. Worship and adore the Guru, the Perfect True Guru, and all your sinful residues shall be dispelled. By great good fortune, celestial bliss is attained, and the Lord, Har, Har, seems sweet to the mind. Servant Nanak proclaims that, in this, the first round of the marriage ceremony, the marriage ceremony has begun.

1 In the second round of the marriage ceremony, the Lord leads you to meet the True Guru, the Primal Being. With the Fear of God, the Fearless Lord in the mind, the filth of egotism is eradicated. In the Fear of God, the Immaculate Lord, sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord, and behold the Lords Presence before you. The Lord, the Supreme Soul, is the Lord and Master of the Universe; He is pervading and permeating everywhere, fully filling all spaces. Deep within, and outside as well, there is only the One Lord God. Meeting together, the humble servants of the Lord sing the songs of joy. Servant Nanak proclaims that, in this, the second round of the marriage ceremony, the unstruck sound current of the Shabad resounds.

2 In the third round of the marriage ceremony, the mind is filled with Divine Love. Meeting with the humble Saints of the Lord, I have found the Lord, by great good fortune. I have found the Immaculate Lord, and I sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord. I speak the Word of the Lords Bani. By great good fortune, I have found the humble Saints, and I speak the Unspoken Speech of the Lord. The Name of the Lord, Har, Har, Har, vibrates and resounds within my heart; meditating on the Lord, I have realized the destiny inscribed upon my forehead. Servant Nanak proclaims that, in this, the third round of the marriage ceremony, the mind is filled with Divine Love for the Lord.

3 In the fourth round of the marriage ceremony, my mind has become peaceful; I have found the Lord. As Gurmukh, I have met Him, with intuitive ease; the Lord seems so sweet to my mind and body. The Lord seems so sweet; I am pleasing to my God. Night and day, I lovingly focus my consciousness on the Lord. I have obtained my Lord and Master, the fruit of my minds desires. The Lords Name resounds and resonates. The Lord God, my Lord and Master, blends with His bride, and her heart blossoms forth in the Naam. Servant Nanak proclaims that, in this, the fourth round of the marriage ceremony, we have found the Eternal Lord God.
