My Reflection on Teaching
My critical event in teaching situation is students do not have fun when learning English. I think it happened because all the classes that I went in were first classes. I am a relief teacher for classes when teachers are not around on that day, but I still teach the students some basic grammar. I see when it affects my teaching because the students feel bored ,because they just follow what I teach, I want them to have fun, especially when it was the 10th period, when everybody was tired and wanted to go home. Since it was a first class, I do not know them, and having fun in the first class has the risk where you have an easy personality. My alternative was to give it some fun when the class was about to end, where I will call a few students and they gave their answers.
My other reflection is I need to stay sincere and honest to all the classes that I teach. The only thing that makes me teach is honesty, and that will keep me going up and forward. For the time being, thank God I am not biased, I do not practise favouritism with my students and I keep a clean self every day. Sometimes naivety will pull some trouble, and being a new comer here I understand to keep away from trouble before t starts, close all the fine holes for trouble, and maintain it. Naivety means not knowing on something the customs here, the rules that are unofficial, not written, but it’s there to be followed voluntarily. For example, where not to park your bike and others.
I also need to show the firmness, it’s the statement of a guy that needs to be shown. It’s a male guy that makes him different from others, and that is seen from the eyes of my peers. My peers are my mirror, where they show me what have I shown to them. It’s what I need to have, to have my reflection from them. They are my mirror and I accept what reflection I hear from them. It is the first step to accept your self as you are, and then I am able to improve the weaknesses.
