Disclaimer : the topic on teaching is solely on my experience as a relief teacher and also as a volunteer teacher to a non-profit organization.
Sebenarnya dah jumpa this quote a few months ago. Really love the quote. It really express my love and feelings of teaching very well.
To those yang tak tahu, I used to be a Cikgu Ganti at one of the High School here in my area and I am currently is one of the volunteer who teach Rohingya kids weekly. Once a week. And I’m teaching Bahasa Melayu. Haha. Can you imagine me teaching Bahasa Melayu when all this while aku mengajar Matematik, Sains dan Fizik. *Oh My!*
It’s a great new adventure, though. Aku menggunakan pengalaman aku menghadiri kelas Bahasa Korea as a guideline untuk aku mengajar masa proses pembelajaran selama 3 jam itu. Dan juga pengalaman aku mengajar budak-budak Tingkatan 1 dan 2 apparently sangatlah membantu.
“How can you fall in love in teaching?”
That question selalu ditanya kepada aku. Ada yang kata; it’s because my mom is a lecturer and it runs in the blood. Oh well, probably.
But, if it runs in the family, it also requires passion, compassion,patience and vision to teach and guide the students not only academically, but also outside the academic-class.
So, to answer that question would be “for the benefit of mankind”. Sounds cheeky but it’s true,okay.
*my ex-students and my current students*
Because, truthfully, teaching the kids nowadays are so challenging. Jiwa dan hati mereka kental. It’s truly a challenge *lap peluh*. Take a look at the kids nowadays, and you will smile , nodding telling yourself that the thing I said is true.
Banyak kali aku terdiam dan termenung jauh bila students aku tak mahu dengar kata. “Adakah aku macam ini dulu?”, has always been my favorite question all the time. To some, it’s easier to scream and to scold. But to me, I always take it as my very LAAAASSSSTTT resort. That’d be the worst case scenario la. Ye la. Budak-budak sekarang ni jiwa kental, keras hati lepas tu kena jerit,kena tengking. Batu dengan batu apa jadi? A fire-spark,kan? That’s why screaming and scolding would be my very last resort. *Different people, different teaching method,okay. Peace, yo!*
I’m doing my very best to be as loving as possible in teaching them. I don’t mind teaching it over and over again. We all need a little reminder, after all.
And the same goes in coaching people to eat right and healthily. Also requires passion, compassion, patience and vision to help them being better in their new healthy and active lifestyle. To remind over and over on calories, take food as organic as possible, to choose the stairs instead of elevator or lift etc etc; that’s my job, you know.
Kau ingat nak tukar gaya hidup dan pemakanan boleh tukar macam kau tukar baju? Even tukar baju pun ada masanya fikir dua tiga kali, “yang ni ok ke?”, pastu bila orang kritik baju tak sesuai, kita dah sedih sedih nak tukar baju. Sama juga dalam implementing new eating and lifestyle habit. It requires guidance, coaching and motivation.
Even famous sportsperson pun ada coach, okay.
As much as kids need teacher to teach them ABC, we also need a coach to guide us well in what field we want to excel in.
As for me, I coach people to lose weight healthily; hunger-free. That’s my passion and what I do best in. For FIVE years and en-counting.
As for the quotes above; “as I decide to become a Herbalife coach, my life forever changed. I’m thinking about my coachee most of the time, 24-7”. That’s how I love my job as a Herbalife coach. I’m bringing change to everybody I met.
