Between Personal Brand, Passion, and a Working Mom

what brought me here is ycpa

 “juri ycpa menyarankan saya untuk memiliki kelebihan personal”

yes, they said i haven’t build my personal brand, i’m a teacher with no spesification, no expertise in a certain topic (teaching what? to whom? where?)

well i’m a teacher, i love teaching,i’m learning for teaching, and i’m teaching to learn

i put my effort to make my teaching works, well i don’t have brand (yet?)

when i think personal communication helps in my teaching, then i’ll be a communicative teacher
when i believe story would present my material better, then i’ll tell a story
when i can only see that being NotNice would help my students think, then i’ll be the devil
when i know that my students need to construct their own knowledge, then i’ll support them to be creative
if i have 40 students in my classroom, then i hope i can support at least 10% of them to be succeed because
of me being supportive (in my own way)

i just thought that one day, my student(s) could be my babyboy’s friends, or colleagues, or neighbour, or teacher, or boss, or anyone nearby him

so i’ll do my best to make sure those guys will do good for the community

“juri ycpa menyarankan saya memperjuangkan passion dalam diri saya”

i have my passion, the same passion i’ve had all this time, 
but since i became a mom – i got an extra one
i am a mom who raise her babyboy mostly all by herself (most of the time, but still need a little help from the family ^^,)
i am learning, still, although not as much as before, because i now have another passion
being with my babyboy as long as i could

for me it is not a limitation, not a distraction, it is my new passion

and, i am proud of it

most women around the place that i live, raise their children but they are not working (or working at home like sewing or having a store)
most women around the place that i work, put the daily care to someone else (family, relatives, daycare)

well i got to arrange my priority..

when i wanted to go to valencia, i got a 2-week discussion with my baby, the discussion wasn’t only for him
but it was also for me to find myself.

he kept asking me, if you love me, why do you have to leave me for 10 days for a conference and a backpacking trip, can you just work (with me) as usual and have fun with me

i said:

i love you
i need to be with you
i will always be with you through my prayers

but like you are you

you free to have your own dreams
and explore the world (when you are old enough to do so)

i am me
i love learning
going to valencia is a big opportunity for me to learn something new

just like you, when you with your friends playing around
would it be nice if mama is also playing with you guys

you have your time

i have mine

well, the arguments were quiet hard, but nice, since he took me to the train station, kissed me goodbye

and he were not crying. ^^


well yes, i love my babyboy so much and since i enjoy learning as my passion

i love learning about being a good mama
