NSTP or National Service Training Program Essay
The purpose of support is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it hurl some difference that you have lived and lived well. Ralph Waldo Emerson. NSTP or National Service knowledge Program for me has become more than just a required deuce-semester tendency for me to graduate. It taught me life lessons that empennagenot be intentional inside the four walls of our classroom. It taught how I can serve my country in my own little way. It taught me that in circumstances others, no matter how small we think it may be, could make a big difference and impact to other people.To be honest, I chose LTS or Literacy Training Service as my NSTP course just for the sake of choosing. As months passed by, I unexpectedly start to love LTS. I learned the bedrock in first-aid and disaster risk reduction management. We went to a school in Samal Bataan for two Saturdays for our fieldwork. There I met a lot of grade sixer students which I immediately b ecame friends with. We prepared art work projects, science experiments, compete charades for their enjoyment while at the same time making authoritative that they are learning from the activities.We were assigned to review them for the upcoming National movement Test. I was assigned to two students which I admit was pretty challenging at first because I am a shy individual and I am not really patient when it comes to teaching others so having to teach two grade six students was really hard for me. It definitely made me step out of my comfort zone. I was pretty misfortunate after our field work because I was already attached to my two students. So before we parted ways, we gave each other a little something so that we would not forget each other and promised to meet once again someday.Over-all, LTS taught me three things patience, deeper appreciation in life, and valuing education more. First, I learned how to be patient in terms of teaching my students. They have different pe rsonalities so I have to extend my patience and be more compromising when it comes to teaching them. Second is deeper appreciation in life. I realized that I am more than blessed because I get to study in a good university while others are struggling hard financially just to attend school every day. I also learned to value education more.
