It happens most of the time in the class, whenever the teacher asks me about the lesson, I wonder why i keep my mouth shut even though I know the answer. I don't know if they understand or maybe they think of me as stupid, I hope not. Well, I just feel guilty because it seems that I just eat my words. I work part time as a phone class teacher, and I always say to my students to speak, to express, to answer if I ask them some questions. And sometimes i tell them not to be afraid to speak out their ideas, they don't know that their teacher is also afraid to speak in class. Actually, not all the time, I'm just referring to one of my classes and it's under "Ms O" aghh Terror! I remember, she told us to do something but it was unclear. The class agreed to ask some questions to her, i was the class' spokesperson and she said "why should I answer, I already discussed that!" Is it a crime to ask???

It's surprising how what a contrasting thought parallelism can do to your thinking mind. When the moment you do it, it actually evades you. If you're not asking for it, it haunts you. Unpredictable it may seem to you. But that is what life is all about. Opportunities are just there...All we have to do is prepare.

don't let one little bad experience of one bad teacher ruin your entire school career. Follow the advice you give your own students, you owe it to yourself. Also, if you are a phone class teacher, and can't speak in class, you should quit your job. As a teacher you are expected to be able to perform all the tasks you require of your students. Anything else is blatant hypocrisy.
