Selamat Hari Guru

Last night I slept at 2am helping the kids selesaikan buat cards.... Actually they've done it much earlier.... just for me to do some finishing touches and envelopes, in which Anastassia yang selalu buat, but this time round I said that I'll do it so that she can do her revision for today's paper. (Exam yang dia tak buat sebab pergi Seminar Head Prefects tu... kena ganti today)



This year I seem to come across several bad apples in the teaching profession..... sigh... Dulu pun ada but I close one eye la..... they are also humans right..... Tapi.... yela.... this year yang i tak berkenan tu, kira to me tak patutla sangat-sangat...... frustla kan because they are supposed to be the kids punya role model.



Tak apa la...... apa nak buat.....





Having said that, I truly appreciate the teachers............. Jasa mereka memang tak dapat dibalas.... A special thank you to Cikgu S, yang sangat-sangat ambil berat kat my children.... walaupun tahun ni she's not in any of my children's classes, she still shows that she cares. She called me last week at 9am on a school day.... beritahu something, in which I told her, I'm aware of it and i have been bugging my child to do something about it.... Tapi my child ni tak percaya cakap mama dia. Nasib baik Cikgu S tegur, and dapatla anak Helena do something about it before ditegur guru-guru lain.



I also appreciate another teacher, Cikgu P who saw that my child had to stay back in class during recess and tak sempat pergi makan. She asked another student to get bread and air kotak so that anak Helena boleh makan sambil buat kerja dalam kelas. (Anak Helena masa tu darjah 1.... apa dia tau)



I also appreciate her for taking the trouble to search for my child bila dia kena tinggal van and at that time it was raining cats and dogs..... and dengan angin macam nak puting beliung.....



I also appreciate Cik S, Cik S is reserved and known for her no-nonsense attitude. However, she showed me the caring side of her during an unfortunate incident, and we became close after that. I look up to her and I dont think I would ever find anyone as dedicated as her.....

And also a bouquet of appreciation to quite a number of other teachers who have touched my children's and my heart in the course of doing the one thing that they love - Teaching.

To all the teachers out there..... to bloggers who are teachers.... ikhlas dari Helena :

THANK YOU!

And Happy Teachers Day......

Hi Helena, one good mother is worth a hundred teachers. And I'm sure you bringing up your kids in the best ways you know a well handed down past generations.
Communication + listening = understanding.
You stay easy, Helena and have a good week, Lee.

Okielah tu Kak helena, sama-sama.parents and teachers should handing hand together, after all, our main objective is similar kan.

there are times,there are some teachers who are really bad. rotten ones. who are already jaded ones.

but personally, i try to be the best.hopefully, im not one of them.

teringatkan one hollywood movie Teaching Mrs Tingle, a groupof students decided to kill her. hahahah.

Jimi, few nights ago Helena tengok cerita The Triump... about a teacher who left his home to teach kat tempat yang paling miskin kat New York.....

Its a true story..... very inspirational.....
