ESL Teacher (beginner’s view)

Sometimes

the students don’t

understand you

and you often

don’t understand them!

At least their words –

their faces and eyes

speak their hope.

Your first job

is

teaching survival.

Why the words

for an ambulance

are important.

Why the numbers

where one lives

are important.

In English.

Emergencies are universal

requiring a common language.

Safety for life, is a great place to start.

Final Thoughts

Intro

both my wife Sheila and i taught esl (english as a second language) to adults, after work hours, at their job sites

if anyone ever wants to see what the american dream might’ve looked and felt like, to our founding and early countrymen, immigrants and early generation americans, then we both whole heartedly recommend teaching to adult esl students

American Values and Yoga

in the same way, i believe, that the values of yoga (oneness, awareness, compassion) are already present within us before we are formally taught those constructs, those ideals, so i believe that the core american values of fairness equality and justice for all, are present within peoples all over the world, before there was an america, and before a new american even arrives here

yoga’s general principles are universal, and so are those of freedom

the details are up to us, in our own times, in our own places

Yoga and Freedom

trying to say yoga should be done “a” certain way – is like saying freedom should only be practiced as in ancient greece

adapting to change is our, humanity’s, possibly greatest survival attribute

recognizing the eternal kernels of truth we evolve around and from –

is possibly our most promising survival-salvation…

if true 😉 that’d be very hopeful

namaste´- con dios – god be with you
