Cikgu… saya nak kencing!

I was once a substitute teacher and boy I’m glad I’ve made that choice. I’ve learnt that being a teacher is not an easy undertaking. It might not require blood shedding or machinegun firing, but it’s a definite mental shaker. Everyone can be a learner, but not everyone can be a teacher.

My great experience started in a ridiculously folksy and very rural SK Parish Balingian, some 65 km from the so-not-in-your-map small town of Mukah. My students don’t speak Bahasa Melayu but Iban and I on the other hand don’t speak Iban but Bahasa Melayu. They will not understand me if I said “Tolong senyap” or “Jangan kencing di dalam tong sampah!” They were a bunch of hyenas in a child body. Shout at them and you’ll be eaten ALIVE… by their parents! Fun…

I tried to incorporate funny stories in my teachings and it worked wonders. They enjoyed it so much that I spent half of my teaching time telling those stories of Bambi’s and Bimboes. Even if I told them stories that they don't understand, they will still laugh. Some of them even fell of their seats. Jim Carey… EAT YOUR HEART OUT!

I quit a few weeks later to join my current company. Although my humour infused teachings will not change my student’s mindset entirely and lead them towards becoming a rocket scientist, but I’m proud to have helped our young citizens to learn the important of err… using the toilet to pee.

I’MNOSUPERMANLAH: Happy Teacher’s day to all teachers out there…
