Slide 3: In the first pot, let’s put some carrots. Slide 4: In the second pot, let’s put some eggs. Slide 5: In the third pot, let’s put some coffee beans, ground into powder. Slide 6: Let all 3 pots boil for 15 minutes. Take out what you put in. Slide 7: The carrots went in hard. They are now soft. The eggs went in soft inside. Now they are hard inside. Slide 8: But the water has the color and the wonderful smell of coffee. The coffee powder has disappeared. Slide 9: Now think about teaching . Teaching is not always easy. Teaching is not always relaxing. Sometimes teaching is very hard. Slide 10: We work very hard but get few results. What happens when we face difficulties? Things don’t happen like we wish. People don’t treat us like we hope. Slide 11: Now think about the pots. The boiling water is like the problems in our classrooms. Slide 12: We can be like the carrots. We go in strong and prepared. We come out soft and confused. Slide 13: We get very tired. We lose hope. We give up. There is no more fighting spirit. Don’t be like the carrots! Slide 14: We can be like the eggs. We start with a soft and sensitive heart. We end up very hard and unfeeling inside. Slide 15: We hate others. We don’t like ourselves. We become hard-hearted. There is no warm feeling, only bitterness. Don’t be like the eggs! Slide 16: We can be like the coffee beans. The water does not change the coffee powder. The coffee powder changes the water! Slide 17: The water has become different because of the coffee powder. See it. Smell it. Drink it. The hotter the water, the better the taste. Slide 18: We can be like the coffee beans. We make something good from the difficulties we face. We learn new things. Slide 19: We have new knowledge, new skills, new abilities. We grow in experience. Slide 20: We make the world around us better. Slide 21: To succeed, we must try… and try again. We must believe in what we are doing. We must not give up. We must be patient. We must keep pushing. Slide 22: Problems and difficulties give us the chance to become stronger… and better… and tougher. Slide 23: What are we like when things do not go well? Are we like the carrot… or the egg… or the coffee beans? Slide 24: Be like the coffee beans!
