Teacher, Cikgu, Guru?

1. When i was a little kid, i always praise the teacher because i thought that they are the one who is the greatest among all. Well said, who is a doctor without a teacher, who is a police without a teacher. Everyone need a teacher. But when i grow up, i realize that the definition of teacher is not about a person or multiple person. It is more on how do you learn, yourself, your experience, that is what teach you throught out your life.

I am a little concern about the young generation or even older generation of teacher which i think that not all the teachers are great teachers after all. Some of the teacher only know how to collect money from the people and using the name of the teacher to make themselves look superior. No one can fight what teacher said. Teacher always right. No way.

Teachers are 50% right and 50% wrong. And what are wrong is also what teach us to go on.

What i see now in this beautiful country of Malaysia, not more than half of the teachers is a great teacher. I can see how teacher now become so rude, always blaming the parents if the rudeness and the fault is on them, always blame the student even the trigger is from them.

Once i see a video of a teacher got kicked by her student. Analyzing the video with my friends, we all made a conclusion since we are all student before, we conclude that the fault is on the teacher. Looking at the teacher finger pointing direct to the face with the angry face, even we cannot listen to he voince but we know, the first impulse in our head is to strike her if we are the student. The problem on handling the rudeness of the student is to become role model and more understanding on teenage normal development rather than scolding and using force.

Do they teach all the teachers in Malaysia about normal development of child? teeager? because they should know how to handle different categories of ages rather than keep acknowledging their student as a 'student'.

2. I remember one of my great teachers when i was in secondary school said that she love us as much as she love her children and she want us to be the best. Well said. This is what a teacher should have rather than scolding and forcing and torturing the student to follow their concern.
Come to think about it, did they do the same thing to their own children?

3. I think teachers in malaysia should be teach to control their rudeness and teach on how to tackle a student rather than ordering the student.

4. regarding the money, what is the difference between a doctor and a teacher? Both are going for money. But still, a doctor is holding a life of a person, even there is money behind it, but to save life is the first priority since if a patient die, then a doctor can be blame on it, can be suspended or even brought to jail. What about teacher? Well, no teacher are brought to jail because their student became a thief or a murder.

5. But still, i want to thanks all my teacher that bring me here in my current position on pursuing my dream. Without you all, i cannot be here. But not all of you though. Some of the teacher i remember to hate until today since i cannot think what is the rationale behind their act on me. what is the rationale on hating me making friends with the problematic student? or even what is the rationale preventing me from listening music while i am studying and many more. But most of them is the best.

I can say a few names that i can remember, Guru Wan Zainol, Ustaz Hamim, Cikgu Taba, Ustaz zainal, Cikgu Azman, Cikgu Shim, Cikgu math di st.anthony dah lupa nama. Ustaza rohaya dan rohani, ustazah that teach me al-quran ( 3 of them) during my primary school, Cikgu Alice ( BM teacher in primary school)... for the people that i did not mention, please forgive me, i forgot your name. Too many name i think.

And the greatest teacher in my life is my parent.

To all lecturer in UMS. This is what is all about. You all ae great until now. And i hope until then.

6. This is a funny thing, i always get annoyed when teachers salary is reaching up to the level of a basic doctor salary. For me, doctor job is to tiring, too busy, no life. But my friends who study to become teacher always oppose me saying that their job is tiring too. haha. I don't know which one is right. Let it just flow then. Both of the occupation have their own responsibility. But i hope doctor salary should be more then. Hope so.
