BEST TEACHER FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY
This award is both an honor and a responsibility because I believe that somehow, I have been a good influence to my students by encouraging them and by teaching them every day. In addition, it’s a responsibility because students expect that you are perfect just because you received such award. Actually, that is not the case. I am not a perfect teacher but what I can definitely promise to my current and incoming students is that I do not only teach with compassion but I am also a learner; I always learn from my mistakes and I study everyday so that I can be able to give what my students need.
To my fellow teachers, we should always strive to be a better educator every day despite difficulties and unexpected circumstances. It is our responsibility to instill both knowledge and appropriate attitudes and to never give up on our students. We may be faced with various challenges brought by students’ diversity but we need to be always prepared to welcome such problems and make it our guide should we encounter the same situation in the days to come. All of us have the chance to be called “the best”, we just need to continue teaching with all our hearts and it will definitely pay off.
Finally, I am very thankful to everyone who has been there to guide me every step of the way. Thank you to the Head Teacher, the Secretary, and the managers for providing a comfortable work environment not only for me but for all of us teachers. To my co-workers for being there to remind me that work is also a venue for friendship and fun. And, of course, to my students who help me become the teacher I want to be every single day.
