It had been a long time since I updated my blog. =P I was actually kinda busy, esp these few days. i started teaching again!!!
If I ever say that teaching that 2 Std 2 classes was a nightmare, I was totally wrong...
I know what is call nightmare after teaching this Std 5 class. Gosh... I am even their form teacher. I hafta teach errr.... 6 subjects: BC, Moral, Mathematics (both English n Chinese), Civic, KH and Kajian Tempatan. T.T
When I got into the class, it was a total mess... Every1 was walking all around, talking and playing (typical primary school students though...). They totally ignored me as if I was not present. T.T After I managed to make them settle down (for less than 10 minutes I think...), I realized that their actual form teacher left me a lot of work. She did not collect their exercise books and workbook back to mark for like 2 weeks, and she gave them a lot of hw which she has not discussed.
So, I tried my best to discuss all the exercises with them these few days and I had not finished while their exam is next week. GREAT... After all those discussions, they hand in all their books and let me check, another heavy work load for me.
Then, this crap came. This morning, a teacher ( Sorry, dunno her name. =P) came to me, telling me that the teacher asked her to bring back some exercise books. I was kinda happy 'cos the students finally got back their diary(hw) and do not need to write on separate piece of paper anymore. I was so bloody shocked when I scan through the pile of books. WTH??? She did not even mark!!! I was cursing, cursing and cursing... Gosh... How can some1 be so damn irresponsible?! She should at least spped up and complete half of her work if she knows that she is going to give birth. What if you are pregnant? It's your job kay??? She can even get her pay for doing nothing. UNFAIR la, my pay is so damn low wei... T.T
Then, my students came complaining to me that she has not even gave them any examples on the types of essay that are coming out in exam. FINE!!! I am forced to give them 4 essays this week, meaning they will go haywire and curse me all the week. This also means that I need to mark 4 x 41 essays this week!!!!!!!!!!!! 164 essays!!! This is nothing if their writings are okay, but theirs are typical CAKAR AYAM... T.T I followed the teacher's way of giving them those important points, which is just like note expansion. SWTZ... Then, I hafta read out the sample essay, TWICE for them to copy down. I was like, what is the pt of giving those points? K, nvm. I just finished marking their 1st essay with me, and guess what, I GOT A SERIOUS HEADACHE. How can they make sooooooooo many mistakes wehn 80% of the essays were written down on the white board and 100% of the essay was read out TWICE.
And now, I still have 41 moral workbooks, 41 chinese workbook, 41 maths exe books and 41 diaries to mark!!! I AM SO GONNA GO CRAZY soon, real soon... 'Cos, there are more to come tmr... T.T
But since something came up to9, I will stop marking now and give my brain, eyes and hand a rest. Seriously worn out... Can't even play piano now, not to say tired, I am not even in the mood now.
