Today is the day of my final teaching demonstration. At 7:00 in the morning I am already in the school. The supervisor from Halu Oleo University arrived at 7:30 in the morning. Yesterday, I asked our buddy to accompany me in my final demo teaching to be my interpreter. At 7:30 in the morning, I went to the classroom to arrange the chairs and prepare my materials. At exactly 8:00 in the morning I was told to start my demo teaching. The class went well and I was shocked because my students are really active in my class. They are all participating and their answers are good. After my final demo teaching, I was relieved because I can say that I did a good job. After the hard works such as, translating the whole book, understanding it, and of course the planning of the appropriate activities, were all paid off in the end.
Today, I’ve learned that every hard works that you do, if you put your heart on it, it will really go back to you with bonus. I’ve learned that being a teacher you have to have the heart for teaching because if you do, then all your works will be appreciated by your students. But if you are just teaching after money, then teaching is not for you because there’s no point in staying in the teaching profession if you are not committed and you don’t have the heart for teaching.
