I found the teaching quite challenging at the start as I found it hard to get the children's attention through my weak ...

I know I have schlepped my hiking boots halfway around the globe, and by that adding around 2 KG more to my total weight, but my Israeli pride pushes me sometimes to strap on my Shoresh sandals (Jesus sandals if you would like), and keep those boots in the room.
