Teacher


It has been a week I’ve become a teacher [temporary] at Sek Men Keb Air Merah, near Kulim Kedah. Today was the worst day ever at that school. Want to know why? I got 2 session of 40 minutes class per session for lower form which was form 2 and form 1. Fyi,I am teaching Bahasa for form 4 and English and History for form 1 and form 2. Initially it was pretty easy to handle them, but as the time goes by, I am not capable enough to handle them in term of controlling the class environment such as they kept walking and talking to each other rather than listening to my lesson. It is for sure coz I am not having any teaching skills to be employed in class to teach them and convey the message of the learning objectives and so on. I used to be a temporary teacher at primary school and the experienced of teaching them as a children who still need more than 100% of guidance from a teacher to be able to survive in the future. For example, teaching a children is rather complicated than teacher a mature or an adult student. In addition, my qualification for this job is SPM level so you can imagine how much you going to get at the end of the period. But, it’s ok with me actually coz I have the chances to share my knowledge and get to know the students. The most important thing is, teacher and the rest of students call me ‘Sir and Cikgu’. That is the most interesting coz every time I walk to the class and bump into other students; they will surely call me ‘Good Afternoon Sir’, ‘Assalamualaikum Cikgu’ and ‘Cikgu’ by lowering their head as sign of respect.

Why is a teacher as my option for temporary job? As mentioned in previous post, I was bored at home so I took a day to seek for a job. With the help from Bullah’s brother, I am able to start teaching at secondary school of SMK Air Merah. It is a daily school and not SBP or MRSM. So the first impression of that school was bad for me coz this school is well known for some critical cases [sekolah harian biasa so what do u expect]. Actually it is not the type of school which resemble whether the school is bad or not good in term of academic and moral ethics, but the way students and teachers mixed around and try to adapt the environment of SBP. As for my opinion, when you are a teacher, you have to make sure to carry out the responsibility as a teacher 100 percent. All of us used to be a student at primary and secondary school, so we know what actually we need and the way the teacher teach us. We’ve seen the world of school since 10 years ago. As for me, I need to ensure that students were able to understand the lesson and excellently performed in their academic as well as posses high moral ethics.

I am not blaming teachers for what had happened nowadays. It is a win-win situation among teacher and student. I’d like to invite those students to appreciate your teacher’s effort to teach you in class. The same thing goes to the teacher. Please teach your student with full of sincerity and with this, InsyaAllah the knowledge that receive by the student will be blessed and useful to everyone in the future. Teacher actually loves the students who come and seek their help outside the class session. Teachers will feel that students actually appreciates what they have coached in class.

For time being, I am waiting for the placement at PETRONAS as I am recommended during the interview last 3 month. Please pray for me and my friends to get the placement soon as I am not going to add up my sin if I am not teaching students properly. They sure gonna remember what I've lectured them till the rest of their life whether the knowledge is good or bad to them [hopefully the good things lah]. One thing that makes me feel hard to to quit from this job at this moment is this sentences


'Cikgu, jangan la berenti lagik, kami ni asyik bertukar Cikgu je, sampai bile kami nk cemerlang'
'Cikgu, please la. Tolong kami. Kami nk terrer dalam Bahasa Inggeris tapi tak tau cara camne nk buat '

'Tahun depan kami SPM, skang nih Cikgu plak xde, camne kami nak catch-up, lgpun kami suka ngn Cikgu'

[mentang2 aku nihensem...muhahaha..]

Fyi, I am wearing long sleeve product of SEED which slightly exposed the figure of my body. Then this statement came out from student at 4S2
'Cikgu slalu g gym ke? Bukan saya kata, tapi si Polan bin Polan ni kata Cikgu Tough la'

[hihi...mmg baju SEED tuh fit la, nak wat camne itu adalah reality *lol*]

Ok, mau tido dulu. Esok kene bangun awal sebab nk bersiap-siap g sekolah kul5.55am dah kene bangun. Good for me then, mandi sebelum matahari terbit baik untuk kesihatan. Kul 12.00 dah kene masuk ke kamar peraduan. Good Nite sumer~
