An ex-teacher

As you know, I was a teacher. I was a primary school teacher teaching only English mainly to Year One and Year Two students as I preferred to be in the afternoon session. My dream was to be a graduate so I did my degree after several years of teaching the young ones.

I graduated with a TESL degree in UPSI in Tanjung Malim ten years ago. For the first year, I was studying in Kinta Teacher's College in Ipoh. Then for the second and the third year, I did it in UPSI.

my best pal -
we still keep in touch

my best pal too but I lost touch with her

Our class leader, very happy-go-lucky man.

Some of my course mates with our BM lecturer. 
Would you believe that our minor was BM?

I enjoyed my life very much in UPSI. When I graduated in Year 2002, I was sent to SYS, a secondary school in Batu Gajah. I taught there for 5 years before I got my transfer to Ipoh. I taught in SM Jati for only half a year. I was on unpaid leave for a year before I finally opted out.

Life as a teacher was interesting for me. I love teaching but due to personal affair, I have to quit and help my husband instead. I have been working in the shop for five years. How time flies.

I missed teacher's day. Teacher's Day falls on the 16 May. So here's wishing all teachers:

HAPPY  TEACHER'S  DAY!

    1. old days teachers is more dedicated I think. Not that current teachers no good but I think they are overwhelmed by all the kursus they have to attend and the the syllabus always change.

      And also students are more respectful to teachers. Now kids listen to teacers less

  18. You want to hear my story?

    Once I met my teacher and fell in love with her quietly. I started to be sweet and paid attention to her. I started to flirt with my teacher and showered her with gifts. Later I confessed to her after some time and she was so shy. Later years we stayed together and got married. My wife is still my teacher until today.

    You like my story?
