Faculty of Education UTM has been celebrating Teacher’s Day every year. Most of the lecturers in Faculty of Education has previously served as a teacher. Undergraduate students will become a teacher once they graduate. Furthermore, most of our postgraduate students are currently served as a teacher in schools and vocational colleges. Thus, Teacher’s Day is a special celebration for the Faculty of Education.
Rumah Alumni UTM has been decorated with black and gold helium balloons to light up the celebration. The ceremony started with the arrival of VIP, a few speeches by Dr.Asha as the Director of Bulan Pendidik, the Dean, and the representative of Persatuan Mahasiswa Fakulti Pendidikan. All the guests enjoyed their lunch with the on stage performances by the students.
Personally, I love Teacher’s Day. My mom celebrate them for the past 37 years. She has been a teacher for that long. This year, she’s retired on last April and no longer able to celebrate Teacher’s Day. But I’m glad to be a part of Faculty of Education UTM. I’m a part of the celebration even though I’m the task force behind this ceremony. Getting wishes of “Selamat Hari Pendidik”, “Selamat Hari Guru”, “Happy Teacher’s Day” by my students is such a sweet feeling. A feeling of gratitude. A feeling of satisfaction.
Everyone who involve indirectly or directly in teaching, either kindergarten, personal tuition and other career path that involves teaching definitely deserve this:
“SELAMAT HARI PENDIDIK” – GURU PEMACU TRANSFORMASI PENDIDIKAN
In addition, our new Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad has appointed Dr. Maszlee Malik as our new Ministry of Education, where both Ministry of Education and Ministry of Higher Education are combined under his portfolio. We are looking forward for an improve education system. I no longer want my child to experience the burden of answering HOTS. I want Uwais to feel great going to school. I want him to feel that he’s worth it and being acknowledge in whatever he’s good at, let it be soccer or cooking or welding. Dr. Maszlee has a lot the be done, but I’m assured he could deliver well. Compared to previous ministers, I believe he could transform and understand the world of education crisis and solve them with whatever means he can.
Well, for the rest of the post, let the pictures do the talking ya =)
