Harder & harder


Apa khabar orang kampung? 
Da lama beta tak mengarang...

Life has gone beyond what I've expected. This year, I took another huge step to gain as much experience as I could to succeed as a teacher. Currently, I could hardly find a space for us (teachers) to relax. Last year is much more like a honeymoon. I arrived at the school in the end of June. That means, less job to do compared to what i had this year. 

Life start early in 6 a.m and could barely end at 4 or 5 p.m. Urghh! AND after the school session we normally have curricular activities as scheduled, from 2 to 5 p.m. During the night we spend our time writing the LP and preparing materials for tomorrow classes.

Sometime I felt unappreciated. I'm not special, I have no secret ingredients, not even magic to turn those kids into a 'super clever human'. But I do posses the guts to do what it takes to bring them into the highest level and pass the exam. Yes, PASS. Seem unambitious isnt it? But that is how you do it, be realistic. The students here are not like those who I used to teach in Subang.

Last year PMR result has rise for almost 30% compared to the previous year. The 2011 batch has set a new school record. I owe all of my former form 3 students, a lot . And all the credit goes to the previous teachers who are not a TESL graduate themselves. Especially Cikgu Khairul and Cikgu Adilah. Their courage has shown that everything is possible.

Not forgotten to the students who never feels tired and bored for what I've taught them in class. Lots of them could hardly understand English, but their willingness to learn is much appreciated. They never take the my lesson for granted. Kelas malam until 11 is a success. Well done students! MASSIVE task ahead for me to keep up with the current achievement.

I hope, in the end of March we will get another good news. The SPM, Insyaallah.
