After years of teaching saya sedar, d only time d Kids like me the most is when I was absent.
Sad but true.
Entry ini ialah sejenis kenangan manis untuk diri sendiri yang sedar populariti memang zilch.
There is a question on directed writing on a speech for a Teacher who is retiring. To those yang dah lupa, there were 12 points given ranging, teacher's achievements, retiring plans to a good memory d student have of the Teacher.
TOO HOTS TO handle katanya.
Despite I told d Kids dont get too personal with d questions ( to d point they dunno know what to write because they do not have an experience on required points.
Semua pun ikut cakap, reka2 je fictional Teacher katanya.
Anyway there r 3 essays which will forever etched in my memory.
One is from Adam, the Dota lover. He followed all the tips I gave. His good memory is d aeroplane games we played before writing exercise. Mokcik terharu, because I thought none of d Kids like it as it is quite childplay for 17-year-old Boys.
Second is from Kamalia. She mentioned how I conducted all the extra classes for PT3 students despite I was not teaching them. I volunteered myself for teknik menjawab segala to redeem all d time I went out ( which was quite often) when I was Ketua Pentaksir Kawasan for 2 years.
Students gave long faces, colleagues did not appreciate having to relief my actual class n d Pentadbir gave me lousy marks for penilaian prestasi. Diam tak diam, 4 tahun kot saya asyik volunteer. Muka mokcik memang setebal tembok China.
I couldnt care less if give bad marks, as long as I can redeem my debt.
I dont think d Kids know how mentally challenged to come out with a slot. I was taken aback with Kamalia 's observation. Afterall, all this while, takde pulak tanda2 sayalah kesayangan beliyau hhahahahahahahahahahahaha..
The last one is from a boy whom I taught since form 1. He wrote just that, Whatttttt he remembered????
He mentioned all things I did n d nice I chose. Up to d point d singing stint!
"Teacher always support me n it makes me trains harder". Ohhhh... Excuse me for being a bit cengeng...
I never know he took it seriously...
It reminds me of one incident though.
Pada petang itu saya berbual dengan Coach mereka. Lama tak berbual, panjanggggggg pula ceritanya.
D Kids buat latihan dari satu set ke satu set. Tapi kami berdua tak habis lagi berbincang/tuduhmenuduh/gossip/cerita, u name it...
Once in a while d Kids akan mencelah dan bertanya pada Coach derang, mokcik pun gigih juga tegur-menegur gitu. Maklumlah mokcik kan pemegang rekod lari atas katil masa kat Sekolah dulu...
" tengok tu... Kita harap dia tau... Ni dia duduk je, bukan nak praktis pun...", saya tegur that particular boy. Knowing him, sejak azali he is a bit playful.
"Kena tunggu turn. Benda tu ( d Rubber) ada satu je", dia jawab... "Coach boleh tak saya lari kat padang?" dia tanya kat Coach dia plak.
" nampakkan kilat tu? Kejap lagi guruh dan dalam masa ( he mentioned numbers) hujan akan turun. Kalau boleh lari dalam masa tu, pergilah.." Coach tu cakap.
Tu pukul anak sindir menantu namanya hhahahahahahahahahahahaha,mokcik pura2 tak sentap. but my eyes fixed on dat particular boy.
He wasnt serious.
In fact, as far as I am concerned he prefers to walk in anyone's shadow. Anyone! No favouritism.
Something I noticed Since 5 years ago, he never change. Or at least I thought he never change.
In the class, he was so playful too. Not rude, just playful.
Saya tak fikir dia simpan yang saya ajar dan drilled. Boy, I was wrong.
Flowery hati mokcik💞
A day before d match, the Coach n I talked about d match, ye lah takkan nak cerita pasal percutian di tepi pantai pulak....
. I told him about err... Things...
On Monday d Coach sent me this.
He won gold medal. Yippee...
But d bekas-juara-lari-atas-katil in me see something else. He is the shortest, which means his ego might be easily bruised.
Sorry, I prefer to predict gitu...
Only this time, I wont say it aloud.
Selama ini, saya tak sangka pula ada 3 orang d Kids yang selalu menghargai usaha (eh?) dan nasihat (?) saya.
3/120 je pun..
Itu pun gigih mokcik tulis entry, untuk gembirakan hati sendiri
