related to health––in short, a teacher––I realized how hard it is to gain the attention of students. First and foremost, you have to speak in a modulated voice. In our case, even though the mic is available. we have to speak loudly enough for them to hear because we conducted class in the grand stand.

That moment, we were both nurses and teachers at the same time. With trembling limbs and soft voices, we fought it so as not to be embarassed in front of the high schoolers. In the first place, why should we when in fact we are the one teaching them? Hence we are equipped with knowledge beforehand. Looking through the faces of the students, it is perceivable that some may listen to what we were talking about, some simply ignore us and go on with what don’t bore them (either texting or talking to July 2010 GAZETTE their seatmate). I am a student myself but now that I
