it has been a while since the last time i wrote in this blog...
actually, i wanted to write so many things but due to time constrain, i was tied up to many never ending works...gosh...time flies..and it seems that nothing has been achieved so far..
--> the HEM files are still incomplete..
--> the English panel files are still unmoved since last january..
-->the students' homework are piling up on my desk...untouched for weeks already..
the result = my life...is a complete mess
what happens? too many programmes to handle at the moment
recently, the HOT news that is fast spreading like fire is the issue of TEACHERS:
**** teachers are being burdened by loads of work (no surprise here, since I've already experienced and talked about this so many times before) - refer to Berita Harian edisi 01/04/2010..front page lagi..
**** but there are also news that condemn the teachers...telling that our complain is irrational & irrelevant because all the extra work that we've been doing now
(i.e. co-curricular & clerical tasks) is a part of our duty...
**** some say that our pay is the 3rd highest after doctor & engineer (it states that the basic salary is RM2500- RM2700 - which is so NOT TRUE) ---> for this article, refer to this link:
(title : mencemburui gaji guru - honestly, what is there to be jealous about?)
but here is the truth:
I DON'T MIND if the extra work is TEACHING (even if I was given 28 periods - solidly used for P & P..it's still bearable even though it is TIRESOME - because I love spending times with my students)
I DON'T MIND if I have to do the extra classes for the low-achievers (because I believe that I could help them, hoping that with my little help, it will ensure that their future is brighter than ever)
I DON'T MIND working extra hours on certain days (at times, from dawn until midnight especially during the annual events such as English-in-Camp/ Hostel Open Day/ Sports Day / Hari Anugerah Kecemerlangan etc.)...It is still fine even though it means that my feet are swelling from standing & walking for the long day...or when the dark, circle ring will be visible around my eyes - the consequence of lack of sleep for days..and many more...
to do all these...I DO NOT MIND AT ALL...
I DO MIND if I have to spend most of my times doing the clerical work such as completing the files for the Nazir to check (who, rather ALWAYS complain than giving positive feedback or guidelines)...doing these clerical work is time-consuming with meticulous details, sometimes, the irrelevant information etc...I prefer to use this time to do ABM (alat bantu mengajar a.k.a teaching aids) or cracking my head on finding ways how to make sure that my students would understand the grammar lesson/literature component or how to make my students stay awake the whole periods and so on...
THE TRUTH - bukan senang menjadi seorang guru yang berhemah, berkebolehan, berbakat & disegani pelajar mahupun rakan sekerja yang lain..
and for me..I am just an ordinary teacher with nothing special except that:
+++ I have passion in carrying out my duty & responsibility
+++ I love my job so much until I don't think that I can do any other thing except teaching
+++ I have wonderful students who light up my days (and who also 'sakitkan my hati' at times - but still ok)
+++ I am with great company (the teachers of SBPISB who are also my good friends)
+++ Not to be forgotten - my BFFs (aunty aida, baya-chan, ummi yakuza and other IPBArians & fellow Victorians)
+++ the most important of all - MY lovely mom & beloved family members - the Ali's family)
and for all these..I am grateful with this blissful life
and...because of these...
I CARE LESS ABOUT WHAT OTHERS THINK OF TEACHERS
GURU = K.A.M.I = JUTAWAN AKHIRAT (insyaallah...)
---> just finished EiC PMR 2010...
the line up work ---> Kawad kaki peringkat sekolah (tomorow), district level (next wed), Sukantara (19- 24 april), volleyball district tournament (22-24 April), sports day (25 April)..then..ready for the Mid Year examination..
with the list like this...adakah kami (para guru) masih boleh dilabelkan mempunyai banyak ruang masa untuk bersenang-lenang sedangkan untuk makan juga perlu mencuri masa?
AND do you wonder how come i still have time to write this entry? the reality -- i am juggling three different works at this time - i am currently printing about 450++ certificates for tomorrow's marching competition (with school's old printer - believe me, the speed will make the tortoise laugh) while watching the teams doing their practice and writing this journal in between..
gosh...never thought that i could be a multi-tasker & superwoman...
