#TFMFirstDay

Story 1
So my first in school went well. At least I survived.
I went to school this week clueless. Luckily, the school admin and teachers are super helpful and supportive.
This morning I have to give a motivational speech during Form4 orientation. Kinda my first. They didn't let us know beforehand. So I guess in the future I should have my keypoints ready just in case.
I love the fact that I can share my personal stories with them to connect with the students.
I used to fail one or two subjects too in my school years too, just like them.
I am from a small  town too, just like them.
The key is never stop learning, from our own mistakes and others.
It's such a perfect time for me to do little great things in my own community.

Story 2
I went to several classes during Form5 registration day and Form4 orientation. The first question they always asked was "Is this the last class teacher?". 

In this context,there are 12 classes in each form.

I stressed my point that there's no difference between classes. You guys can succeed too,one way or another. I believe in each and every one of you.

"No, I don't differentiate among classes.There's no 'kelas pandai' or 'kelas kurang pandai'."

Total silence.

One of the boys shouted 'Terima kasih cikgu! (for saying that)" 

The best 'thank you' I ever had.
