It's good to be back. Feeling my own presence in my class has made me realize how much I have missed my work and especially my students. I can not think of doing any thing else in my life, but teach. I can see my students have also missed me and that knowledge is very overwhelming.
This feeling makes me feel so fulfilled that I feel very lucky to own the feelings I have. I have been lucky to discover teaching and find satisfaction in it. It seems I was made or designed for this profession for I feel so comfortable in my class that to describe it would be like 'fish in water'.
My friends worked hard in my absence, substituting my classes. I am very grateful for the support that they have rendered me, everyone should have colleagues like mine.
But, now I have to do my part, dedicate my time and effort, for I have three class twelve sections, who will be sitting for the most important exam of their lives.
It's good to be back.
