Now there is an interesting topic eh? I don’t mind bragging at home to Amber about things I can do, but generally avoid doing so to the public at large as it’s a bit uncouth to do so. Honestly I do quite a few things ‘well’, and not a lot of things ‘great’. Sort of that Jack of all trades, master of none kind of thing.
If I have to pick one thing I would choose… Nose picking, sometimes I can really work out a good one.
That was when I was a kid though, so let’s choose something else.
I think that something I do well is teaching. And really this is more of a ‘people have told me I am good at this so I am going to believe them’ kind of thing.
I have only been a black belt at karate since November of 2010, but I have been helping to teach things at karate since I was a green or purple belt all the way back in 2004-2005 or so. Many parents and adult students would tell that I was good at teaching and many asked if I was a teacher for my actual job. At the time I was not (I’m not a school teacher now either), but teaching is part of my job now.
I’ve been a day care teacher, or Early Childhood Educator, or glorified babysitter or whatever you want to call it (seriously call it the second one, we like that) for about a year and a half. I have been told by my co-workers that I inspire them (I doubt as much as they inspire me) and by my supervisor that I ‘really know my kids’. I take their word for it. If people who have been doing the job for 10+ years think I am good at it, who am I to argue? It’s very humbling I find to receive that type of feedback and compliments from those that I work with.
Have a different opinion? Let me know! But also, what are you good at? Post it on your blog and link it here! Or a comment works too.
