Make Me Strong - Sami Yusuf

Salam.. At last today i had the opportunity to update my blog.. Well i guess many of the visitors are well aware that i am actually a person who involves in education field. Anyway yes... having involved in such field has led my life to cycle around the world named SCHOOL. Last weekend my form 3 and 5 students had a motivation camp in UUM Sintok for 3 days. Thus, since i am teaching them and i am single, i had to somehow be there with them. Consequently, my days for the whole week had been so unrestful and tiring.

Yesterday i had a MC.This was due to the hectic week that i had had. But before i got one of course i had to see a doctor in order to get an MC. My body that day was hot and sometimes cold. I felt so exhausted that i couldn't wake up that morning as i had a very bad headache. So, when i was seeing the doctor, weirdly i was not so sick and my temperature was ok. The doctor looked like he did not believe me. When i said that i could probably be in stress, he said, " kerja cekgu busy apa sangat sampai stress". Huh how could he say that to me!! That is such a humiliation!! Many people said so to us (teacher). They think being a teacher is such an easy job. Have they given a thought of what we teachers do at school daily?! Such ignorance!!

Being a teacher in general and SBP teacher in specific is not as easy as those people think. We, teachers are not only teaching. We have to prepare materials on our own. We have to check on the student’s everyday if we are respective class teachers. We have to prepare exam papers. We have to accompany students when they are going out of school. We have to attend extra classes. We have to mark/check students' books (imagine if we teach 5 classes- 5x30=150 students). And if we have extra position in school like Head Panitia or Secretary, or Treasurer of Panitia, hence so many works to be done every day.

What I said above are just half of what a teacher does everyday… So for people who think that being a teacher is easy please change your perception as you are so damn wrong. Not many people realize that in being a teacher, so many sacrifices to be made. All is because of the students. Many teachers have to put their family and personal matters second after students and school.

I have a friend whom I had had an argument about this matter. He could not believe me when I said that I am such a busy teacher. He said that people whom he knew worked as teachers were not busy like me. Here I would like to say, don’t judge the book by its cover. This is the credit that we teachers have. We are so flexible that even though we are so busy we could attend to other activities without looking so eventful. However if there are teachers whose life is not busy, that could probably because they themselves who choose to be monotonous.

Thus, I would like to say CONGRATULATIONS to all teachers who have sacrifice their life to their students and school more then to their family and happiness. YOU ARE THE BEST!!! =)

p.s# to all exSAINA, teacher Naimah Adam has just been transferred to Sek.Men Sains Kubang Pasu. She is no longer in SAINA. =(
