I.am.inadequate

I can’t help but feel that bad mouthing another person is… a deep sense of inadequacy and a symptom of inferiority complex.

I’ve been talking bad about a high school student I used to teach recently. There has been no progress on his part for months on end. I couldn’t figure out what is preventing him from progressing. So I often attribute it to him being 心不在课室里 (the heart was not in the class).

But it’s not entirely his fault. A bad student is a the result of a bad teacher. The Chinese 三字经 has a famous saying: 养不教、父之过,教不严、师之惰. Loosely translated as: raising a child without proper guidance is the parents’ fault; teaching without discipline and producing results, is due to the teacher being lazy.

Now that I’m ‘fired’, I’m not sure I should be happy or disappointed. Disappointed that I’ve not done a good job teaching, but happy that I don’t have to endure the frustration of teaching someone with a skull infused with adamantium (you’d get this satire if you are a fan of X-Men/Wolverine). <— See, here I go bad-mouthing him again. =P

I think it's time for me to leave, since now that I'm practically a super useless accessory here. Who's interested in learning the Maori war chant in NZ with me, aye?
