Assalamualaikum. Finally, I got to be a relief teacher. I must say that this was the job I was aiming for since last December. Maybe it is because I want to contribute back to Northbrooks Secondary School. It is an ad-hoc position. Well, I must say that the pay is good and worth it. I quite like the job. The Secondary 4 students (even the N.T) are a pleasant joy to be with but not the Secondary 1s and 2s. Well, my favourite class is 2T. Not that they are quiet but they are friendly except 2 girls. However, the rest are good. You know, I am so used to very small classes in Innova Junior College, when I go to Northbrooks, the average number of students per class is 30. There was even a class that has 38 students. I wonder how the teachers cope. I am sure they are used to this. Being a teacher is not bad. Maybe I will pursue it. The first time when I stepped into my first class and suddenly the class chairman shouted, "Class stand!" oooh I am so not used to this. "Good morning Mr. Izwan!" Gosh! Hahahaha... Apart from the rude and incorrigible students, the rest were okay. Met Othneil..oops Mr. Othneil, Mr. Tan Ye Sheng and Mr. Joshua yesterday. It is so funny when you have to see them as your colleague. It was only 3 years ago when we were friends and wearing uniform. People were guessing my age and the range was 17-32. Hahahaha. 32? Did I look that old yesterday? Gosh... But it was only this girl who guessed that age. Majority said I was 18. I am looking forward to another day of relief teaching.
