What life skills would you like to pass on to your students?
A sense of humour is a vital coping mechanism for life. I would like to encourage my students to be bold, make big bold choices and live with those choices. One you are afraid of failing, you stop taking risks and feeling that fear inspires you to keep going and try new things.
As a teacher I think we should educate our students to make their own decision while we are just their guidance. To best teacher will never choose for their students what they're going to be or to do. Just lead, proposed and observe. As an older (and also a teacher) we should have our trust that there are many things they're going to discover more than we know today.
The best thing that we can pass to our students is "How to Think"...
How to set a budget - and then how to stick to it.
How to defer short term pleasure for long term goals (an emergency fund, a diet, saving for a vacation).
What debt does and what it costs.
What is expected in the employment market, from manners to dress code
