up-sKILLing is KILLING

You haven't passed the CPT.
You are not up to the standard for ELT.
You didn't do well in your APTIS.

Yaaa yaaa yaaaaa... Whatever~ 

You may come out with a list of reasonsss but still, all are considered as REASON. A reason is still a reason to cause something to happen. And what on earth am I talking about....?

I think it's better for me to further my study rather than involving with this up-skilling things. Seriously, the program is killing me inside out.

Pah, my dear friend, if you happen to read this, believe me, you are lucky and I am trapped.. [ *___* ]

According to the trainer, we are in the middle level for ELT, which is B1-B2. That's why we have to undergo this up-skilling program for almost a year to upgrade our level to C1-C2 which I personally don't think it is necessary at all. The lowest level is A1-A2. Basically, C1-C2 is near to native speaker.

Now, with this up-skilling course, I have extra works to do. I mean more and more and more and lots more extra work. If you are a teacher, then you will understand the situation. If you are a teacher, but you didn't get my problem, it means that I still have trillion years to be a good teacher because I have a very serious problem to handle tons of works. Am I a problematic teacher?

Next year, I'm going to be a brand new teacher, a near native speaker teacher. Haha.

What do you think will happen if I'm a near native speaker teacher, yet I still could not attract the pupils' attention and interest..... and also fail to control the class???

I'm Alive

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.. Hi there!

There are so many things to share but it's just that not every single thing can be spoken out freely. My dream is to teach baby.........

......... but I ended up with toddler.

There are so many things to learn and so many knowledge to be equipped with. Not to mention to be as patient as possible. As a teacher, patience is a MUST and it is not optional.

I did once, knocked my student's head with a book and I ended up feeling guilty throughout the weekend. Fortunately, it just slightly touch the student's head. Things like this happened when one lose control of oneself. Not to mention, I could not control my anger at that moment and it took away all the patience I held before.

As time flies and day goes by I started to get used with my life as a high school teacher. Either babies or toddlers, the core business is teaching. My life is surrounded by pupils and books.

But then......... to face the reality, teaching matters nowadays involve working papers and office work in which should be done by someone else who is more capable. However, this is what life is about..... and so, the moral values are smiles even if no one is smiling at you and patience is priceless. Till then~
