- New Teacher Poetry for 2011. Included in the new “Teachers Students & Education Specialists” eBook collection.
“a beginner’s view : the intent of this blog is to incrementally build a body of thought that works toward integrating various topics, yoga, fitness, and the arts – it’s a process…”
esl teacher (beginner’s view)
if the words endure, they do so because they link the links –
“esl teacher (beginner’s view)” is a selection from the six dozen poems in the ebook, “teachers students & education specialists”
ESL Teacher (beginner’s view)
the students don’t
and you often
don’t understand them!
At least their words –
their faces and eyes
speak their hope.
Your first job
Why the words
for an ambulance
Why the numbers
where one lives
Emergencies are universal
requiring a common language.
Safety for life, is a great place to start.

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
