A different perspective of a teacher

I'm to get good respond from my reader about this blog. Even though, the focus of this blog is about rugby but I try to make it more reader friendly with more open topic of interest. So today I decide to talk about "being a teacher". I always believe that a teacher should always be versatile then only he or she can feel the joy of being in this wonderful profession.
A teacher in my wife's school complained indirectly to her because she had to leave class for choral speaking rehearsal for the National Teacher's Day Celebration in May. I just couldn't understand why such teacher never understood the roles that she is playing. Juggling with her classes, papers to be marked and also family I think she deserved some respect and not complains. I bet if that teacher were to be in my wife's shoes she would not stand a session of the training. As a teacher myself I wear many hats, as referees, coach, driver, maid and so on (you name it) I never regretted that I have chosen this profession. I admit that I have left a few classes with the students but I never left them empty. There is always work to be done and there is always new skills to be learned. Sometimes people think that leaving school for other things is easy, one thing they do not know is that we have to make up classes and double the work of the teachers who stayed in school all their teaching career.

Meeting the challenges of the new millennium, teachers need to be more proactive and reliable. Students may not see their teachers as role model but if we can earn their respect you can be their idol. As a coach, I want my rugby players to look at me as their mentor. Teaching my students to play rugby is not all about winning. I want them to be a fully developed individual. I want them to have a strong character and highly disciplined. Above all that I want them to be true gentlemen.

I'm glad I have chosen this profession and I am proud to be an extraordinary kind of teacher. To all the teachers out there, I salute all of you because you are the backbone of our society.

kan dah bersuara... hahahahha...

takpe naim, sorunk berbunyi, tak jadik apa... bak kata org, biarkan luncai terjun ngan labu2 nyer...

yg benarnyer, dia tak senang tgk amie... dulu waktu kitaorg jadik student pon, cikgu2 yg extraordinary ni lah yg tak disenangi... sbb dipandang remeh esp bila baik giler ngan students... tp diaorg tak tahu, cikgu camnihlah yg student sayang and respect sbb student tak rasa ada gap...

kudos to both of you!

Thanks guys, I'm always the strong silent and crazy cool type. In my school I don't have any problem with my colleagues because everybody know that I am there because of rugby. Academic is always my first priority, those who do not perform in academic will be rested from the team. Thanks again for all your support.
