breaking the mould of heartache-job


On my third day of teaching i was somehow into fight with a year-5 pupil. to make the story short, i once punished him to stand on the chair for beating his friend during lesson. as a result, he went berserk and he swore to take his revenge on me and the rest of the class. i wasn’t sure in what sense his revenge would end up but at the end of school hours, i got a report telling that he punched one of his classmates.

Is that my fault for punishing him?..

Hermm that’s reality,the real happenings in schools.. there’re usual bullying of the weak, picking fights to release anger. frankly speaking, i do enjoy my teaching but among these children, aggressive behaviour served me and other teachers mainly a trouble. with all the troubles that abound, it’s inevitable for a teacher to assume extra responsibilities besides teaching. it’s impossible to walk around all the time to break up fights and make sure they always behave. it’s not an easy way i’m telling you..

Looking at my condition handling those children with difficulties, one of the teachers spoke up; “if you cannot beat them, join them”.. the teacher reassured me that these delinquent students need dedicated teachers like us more than those in elite schools.’s true!

Like it or not i must have courage to work the day, have them learn through fun. honestly i dare not aim for the stars with my charge though i’m paid for each working day. but i hold on to such modest hope to strongly influence them into decent human beings. and with consciousness i stay the doing..huhu

I should thank the veterans. they often tell me that in breaking the mould of educating people, tears are not good company but strong determination and genuine attempt should be at the top.. at least i gain hope from there.

Days and years more to go..i’ll be spending most of my age in teaching.

Dear Allah Most Gracious, guide me to go through the days with constant patience.. i promise i’ll be good~

    You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.

    A first grade teacher collected old, well known proverbs. She gave each child in her class the first half of a proverb, and asked them to come up with the rest.

    “you can lead a horse to water but …how?”
    ~(you cannot make it drink)

    “Don’t bite the hand that…looks dirty”
    ~(feeds you)
