The rewards of teaching!

For the last two months the question "are you still teaching?" kept popping every now and then. Well, to officially inform you "I stopped teaching since June 2009."  The major reason, my sleep is totally affected, my stress is adding up to my weight and my focus for the company is necessary due to the hiring of new staff. Nonetheless, I raised the bar higher for my students, I provided some jobs or projects for them to work with me. I am very happy that some of them have grown better on their craft.

I am glad that they listened and was able to experience the real world with me, which makes it as a very fulfilling experience. Just last night, I received a text message from my co-worker at Adtech - Ryan. He was the video editor of our TV commercial. The message was an update for the Mindanao Film Festival 2010. He told me that he won the BEST EDITING and his short film was 6x nominated. The complete details can be seen in this  Poster of AMPON - Mindanao Film Fest 2010 .

While I was teaching in class, I was also there giving him the tips and showing him how to reach the standard of better commercial output, even if I was not into video editing but my directorial skills along side with him also grew.

I am glad to have contributed to this film somehow, I am happy that even if I am not a full pledge 40 years old adult yet, I was able to contribute a lot to the development of their career, because it doesn't mean that when you are young you can't reach for your dreams. I hope to see a brighter future for all of us!

I thank God for the talents I was able to share to them too.
