How I enjoy being at school 🙂
Students have been my greatest joy since 2001, the year where I decided to become a full teacher…a decision that I will never regret for the rest of my life. Small salary but great memory that will last for a life time.
I have been having this discussion with myself about sharing things related to school in my other blog but taking care 2 blogs is already tiresome (this blog and my turtle’s blog) and to add more blog dedicated specially for teacher’s stuff just too difficult to do.
Just like the name of this blog, Polychrome Interest…I stuff all things in one blog 😉
Anyway…let’s get back to the main thing I want to share in this post. Previous Thurday was the last day of school for this semester, I am now heading to 3 week holiday…yeaaa \(^^)/
The last day was both fun and annoying. Let’s the annoying part first…but since this post is open for public, let’s just say that next year will be filled with someone who can’t stop bragging himself in front of other teachers. I better keep my distance from him.
Now…let’s just ignore him and talk about my kids 🙂
The last day was really fun. My kids were going to have a drama competition held by the next door school. They were all out and prepared to fight the battle. We were trying to prove that as a new school we got what it takes to be noticed! Unfortunately, the teachers had to do an important meeting at the same time with their performance. I knew I couldn’t see the performance, but I still wanted to capture the moment. I came early and took a lot of photos of my kids 🙂
I always enjoy drama preparation. When I was still an English conversation teacher (I am a chemistry teacher now, my real major), I had drama on my curriculum and it was a blast seeing them prepared and acted well. Now, I didn’t participate much with their drama but I still support them 100%…we have to show them who we really are!
The students didn’t mind to dress as a woman/girl as they seemed to enjoy once in a lifetime experience dressing in skirt 😉
Here are the photos
I am happy to say that my students won Poem Appreciation contest, Indonesian and English Speech contest, and second and third place in drama contest. It’s not a big competition, only local competition amongst school under same Yayasan (company) but it’s a great time to prove their real ability and to stand out from other schools.
After the meeting was over and the students were ready to go home, I went to a mall with my three students (Dina, Lusy and Taraz)…we were just hanging out in the mall talking about a lot of things.
I love my students, I love interacting with them, I love teaching them I love annoying them with test…overall, I love teaching 🙂
I will share my last day at another school next week 🙂
