Goodbye student hello teacher

This week's it.

I will finally know where Fate's gonna send me.

And no, I didn't tamper with it, no cables. Except for time when my mom made me go to the PPD to ask for a place in my hometown.

Or if she secretly went behind my back and begged every school principal in every school in Keningau to write a recommending letter.

I'll be attending a two day briefing, and on the third day, they'll bring us to our school, wherever in hell it will be.

So basically it's like a reality show, where the contestants have absolutely no idea what their next challenge or destination will be. Minus the cameras and million dollar prize.

There should be paramedics 'coz I'm sure there will be cardiac arrests.


Yes, I am terrified.

Maybe not so much as when I was going for my teaching practice when I had ZERO teaching experience, but this is equally, probably more insane.

'Coz I'm not going to be in school for JUST three months.

After three months, the students are still gonna be my problem and I can't just hand them with snot on their noses to their previous teacher.

And if you wanna talk about experience, I do have some. But not for the school that I'll be sent.

See, I had it easy during my teaching practice. I taught girls and it was easier to bond with them. Plus I got really bright kids. Quote from one of the teachers there, "Our last class is the other schools' first class."

So yeah, I don't know how to handle boys and dumb as shit weak linguistically challenged students.

I'd have to up my awesomeness I guess.

Oh well.

People, pray I won't kill a kid.

Hello Amanda, wishing you all the very best in your new career...
May the wind always be at your back, and the sun upon your face, and the winds of Destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars.

And remember, one of your future pupils might be a Prime Minister one day, and will remember you.
You will be lighting the way for hundreds of young people....

Good teachers are costly, but bad teachers cost more.
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.

And the best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes, and inspires his listener with the wish to teach himself.

Remember, a teacher's purpose is not to create students in his, her own image, but to develop students who can create their own image.

Have fun and keep a song in your heart, best regards, Lee.
