What's about a Teacher

by Alex Yew   Feb 17, 2020


A Tedious Career
Highly Expected but
sadly not Highly Respected
by the Society.
And not chosen by Many.

Why bother?
Kind Teachers Serve
Good Teachers Contribute
Passionate Teachers Sacrifice
Great Teachers Ignite Students' Wisdom.

It ain't about Money.
It ain't about Honey.
It ain't about Fame.

It is all about the Contentment
of seeing a kid grow
Mentally, Emotionally, Psychologically,
and most of all
becoming a Human
who shows Gratitude.
With this right Attitude,
one day he certainly achieves higher Altitude.

When a student
drops by and says 'hi'.
We know,
Education Makes a Difference.

#Dedicated to a Pre-U teacher, Sir 'Tioh Kun Poo'.

    Most of the people will think that being a teacher is a silly job, but without teachers, we can't learn many things about this life. From small to adult, from ignorant to intelligent. With that, I would like to expresses my thankfulness towards every teacher who had to contribute a lot to help students in this world and brighten their future.

      Thank you for your kind words.
      Indeed for people out there who perceive 'cash as king'
      might be too snobbish thinking that teaching is only for those who aren't good enough.
      Lowly paid....bra..bra...bra
      However, in life, without teachers' guidance we might not become who we are and what we are today.

    It ain't about the time or even money, but the sacrificing of their mentality to teach the students. All of us, no matter what is your career, what is your position or status, we must be respected by each other as long as what had you sacrificed is equivalent to what you get. That's enough for us and don't us dare to be greedy for what belongs to other people. By right this teacher, Mr. Tioh must be a very good teacher, he don't even ask for pay back from every single person unless he want you to get a good result in the exam which was every teacher's wishes.

      Indeed, Mr.Tioh is a living role model for many young teachers.
      He exemplifies what a teacher should do.
      May god bless you.

    I think teachers are one of the greatest professions in the world because they always pay selflessly for students and do not ask for returns.What they want is that students can become good people and have a good future.
    Although sometimes I feel the teacher is a bit harsh, but I also know that they are for us to be better.????
    In conclusion,thanks for the teacher who taught me in the past and now.????????????

      why so many question marks there???? Lol
      Thank you for your favourable reply and the kind words given.
      Hmm.. it might not be harsh but firm.
      Every student is unique. Every one has got different characteristics. There is no best teaching method which can be applied to every one. However, for thing for sure, if teachers are firm and holding on to the principle they produce better quality students.

    Firstly, I would like to say 'thank you' to all teachers in this world. They do so many things behind people in the middle of the night or anytime that we don't khow. What they do, aim nothing. They just wanna to help their students to success in their lives. Not only in academics but also help students to build up their confidence and the right values to be possessed.
    Job as a teacher is not as easy as ABC. They also need to suffer a lot of things that usual people don't know.
    For me, being a teacher, is a sacred and great things. Salute the teachers. May god bless all of them. XD

      Thank you for your reply and your kind words.
      It is a profession about conscience and unconditional giving.
      True educators won't bother so much about how much they earn, rather then are more concerned about how much they have taught, contributed, assisted.

    Although most of the people are scorning about this narrow path, we are still striving, trying to make people's jaw drop. Luckily, we have got the dedicated teachers here, who give us confident, motivation,encouragement while others don't.
