I am a teacher
During the first three weeks of our 2nd semester of the university, we were sent by our university professors for the big mission - to feel what it really meant to be a teacher. So my school practice held between 30.01-18.02. So let me tell you how did it passed what kind of feelings and admiration did it leave on me.
