» 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
mai ales. caci aceasta de obicei il plictiseste pe copil si produce cel mult niste rezultate aparente. Cine ar putea sa-mi faca ziua mai frumoasa daca nu ei cand imi zic „Doamna Gabi. Eu nu sunt nimic fara ei si ei nu sunt nimic fara mine. mult mai frumos decat as fi reusit eu sa-l schitez. Pot foarte bine sa-i cert si sa-i impac. cei pe care multa lume ii lauda prin oras. copiii o sa invete nu numai sa-o respecte si sa-o iubeasca. Lucrul de capetenie e ca educatoarea sa nu moralizeze mult. sa-i pacalesc ca-s fara cusur. ci sa-l induplece prin exemplul sau si printr-o consecventa iubire de adevar si de dreptate. o complementaritate de impliniri si autorealizari. Iar impreuna suntem cei pe care multe alte doamne educatoare ii invidiaza pe ascuns. Si cine ar putea sa le faca lor o zi mai senina cu un abtibild in piept? E reciprocitate. sunteti frumoasa ca o printesa !”. Pe o educatoare patrunsa de astfel de sentimente. Pot foarte bine sa rad si sa plang cu ei. ci si sa-o asculte totdeauna si sa se conduca si ei de sentimente de dreptate si adevar. 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. Nu as putea sa fiu nimic din ceea ce sunt daca ei n-ar fi. Pot la fel de usor sa predau o lectie sau sa pun un copil sa deseneze un urs.de calitati sufletesti si. cei care „muta muntii” din loc. Mi-a luat ceva timp sa pricep ca nu-mi pot permite sa-i manipulez. care impune mai mult. decat sute de predici moralizatoare. Pot atatea lucruri sa fac… dar numai datorita lor.
„prietena” de care cei mici au atata nevoie! Si-atunci se intampla o minune! . sau mai rele decum sunt de fapt. minunea de a fi educator! What makes a good teacher? . Arta de a fi educator este minunea de a ne oglindim zilnic in ochii copiilor... se insala amarnic. Numai pe cunoasterea adevarului se poate ridica o viata morala.Copiii nu trebuie mintiti pentru nici un motiv. Ochisorii unui copil iti pot „spune” multe: uneori esti zana buna. 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. realitatea trebuie sa le fie dezvaluita fara nici un gand ascuns. va putea educa.. rodnica.
