BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  11. Kobe Bean Bryan, a spectacular basketball player, an incredible person, an example to follow.

    Kobe was, is and will be the best basketball player for me.

    After the horrible news of his death on January 26, I felt very bad, because the world lost one of the biggest stars of basketball, but I felt worse when I learned that one of his two daughters also died.

    This terrible news affected us all, his followers, his friends, his family ...

    Singer Bad Bunny has dedicated a song called
    "7 Rings" is a song that expresses the admiration and affection we have for Kobe Bryan.

    Rest in peace Kobe.

  20. Kobe Bryant was a basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers, he was born on August 23, 1978, in Pennsylvania, (United States). Bryant made his debut in 1996 at age 18 and played 20 seasons for the Lakers.

    Bryant currently ranks fourth on the NBA's top scorers list, second only to LeBron James, Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Bryant was, along with the latter, the player who had been chosen the most times as part of the best quintet of the season. Bryant retired on April 13, 2013 due to suffering an injury to the Achilles tendon, which caused him to leave basketball for a long time.
    Bryant died on January 26, 2020 due to a helicopter accident in which he was traveling with his eldest daughter and 7 other people, all of whom lost their lives. After his death on April 4, 2020, he was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame's Class of 2020.

    In my opinion Bryant was one of the best basketball players that could have existed, the news of his death left us all dismayed without believing what had happened, his farewell was huge and incredible, by former teammates, teams , friends and people from all over the world.
