» Cred cu tarie ca meseria asta, de educatoare, nu sta bine pe orisicine. Cred cu tarie ca educatia nu se face cu gura inchisa si mainile la spate. Cred cu tarie ca pot fi prietena copiilor, cu precizarea ca eu le vreau binele. Mie nu-mi ramane altceva de facut decat sa caut cum anume pot insemna ceva pe termen lung. Pentru ca sta in puterea mea sa educ… atunci de ce sa nu o fac, exact asa cum mi-ar fi placut mie sa fiu educata si cum de altfel am fost. Atunci cand se desprinde de mana mamei, copilul „apuca” mana.. educatoarei. Pentru fiecare copil in parte, educatoarea devine „mama” in noul univers numit „Gradinita”. Se simte singur, este speriat, ii este teama de ceea ce il asteapta. Depinde de tine, ca educatoare, sa-l faci sa se simta in siguranta. Pasii sunt marunti. Treptat, lacrimile se transforma in zambete timide iar la sfarsitul unei zile in care n-au mai fost lacrimi, ci doar zambete, copilul a mai facut un „pas” iar educatoarea pleaca acasa multumita si implinita. Ce mare lucru „face”o educatoare? – va veti intreba. Oricine i-ar putea lua locul... Intr-adevar, nu „face”mare lucru, dar ceea ce face, face cu sufletul, face cu dragoste si face cu multa daruire. Nuti poti alege aceasta meserie decat daca iubesti copiii! Ocrotirea mentoriala a copilului inseamna compatibilitate
Mi-a luat ceva timp sa pricep ca nu-mi pot permite sa-i manipulez. Pot foarte bine sa-i cert si sa-i impac. Pe o educatoare patrunsa de astfel de sentimente. cei care „muta muntii” din loc. copiii o sa invete nu numai sa-o respecte si sa-o iubeasca. cei pe care multa lume ii lauda prin oras. sa-i pacalesc ca-s fara cusur. decat sute de predici moralizatoare. Cine ar putea sa-mi faca ziua mai frumoasa daca nu ei cand imi zic „Doamna Gabi. Pot atatea lucruri sa fac… dar numai datorita lor. ci si sa-o asculte totdeauna si sa se conduca si ei de sentimente de dreptate si adevar. care impune mai mult.de calitati sufletesti si. mult mai frumos decat as fi reusit eu sa-l schitez. Pot la fel de usor sa predau o lectie sau sa pun un copil sa deseneze un urs. Eu nu sunt nimic fara ei si ei nu sunt nimic fara mine. mai ales. sunteti frumoasa ca o printesa !”. Iar impreuna suntem cei pe care multe alte doamne educatoare ii invidiaza pe ascuns. Pot foarte bine sa rad si sa plang cu ei. . Nu as putea sa fiu nimic din ceea ce sunt daca ei n-ar fi. ci sa-l induplece prin exemplul sau si printr-o consecventa iubire de adevar si de dreptate. caci aceasta de obicei il plictiseste pe copil si produce cel mult niste rezultate aparente. un „circuit de vocatii ”. Pot foarte bine sa recunosc in fata lor ca am gresit fara a ma simti mai putin grozava si fara a crede ca mi-am subminat autoritatea. Si cine ar putea sa le faca lor o zi mai senina cu un abtibild in piept? E reciprocitate. Lucrul de capetenie e ca educatoarea sa nu moralizeze mult. o complementaritate de impliniri si autorealizari.
rodnica. Numai pe cunoasterea adevarului se poate ridica o viata morala. Ochisorii unui copil iti pot „spune” multe: uneori esti zana buna. „prietena” de care cei mici au atata nevoie! Si-atunci se intampla o minune! ..Copiii nu trebuie mintiti pentru nici un motiv. va putea educa. se insala amarnic. minunea de a fi educator! What makes a good teacher? . sau mai rele decum sunt de fapt. realitatea trebuie sa le fie dezvaluita fara nici un gand ascuns. Arta de a fi educator este minunea de a ne oglindim zilnic in ochii copiilor. Cine crede ca falsificand realitatea si aratand anumite stari mai bune.. alteori esti si vrajitoarea cea rea dar esti mereu „mama“ care alina durerea si sterge raurile de lacrimi si..
