Appreciated

In academic line, it is very heartwarming to know that all the hard work and commitments to your work are appreciated. It's towards the end of the semester, and some of the final year students will be sending off for industrial training for three months before their graduation in November.

Within these few days, I had received many thank-you cards and presents. All not to bribe, but to express their sincere thanks towards me. I felt appreciated.

Not that I love to receive cards, good words or gifts, but these simple gesture of appreciation had boosted up my passion towards my profession. Perhaps it's the way i deliver my lecture, or perhaps it's my yankee-slang Englsih, they found my lectures easy to be understood, light to be digested.



Some of them decided to give little gifts. Gifts that will only reminds me to work harder and to do better.


While some, decided to give awards. Hahahahah...I pray to God for strength, that I will be able to do better, so that I will be able to give my students the best I could.


Oh well, it's all because I had an apple a day. An apple a day, keep you smile always. hehehe

Frankly, the proudest moment come only when they're on the stage receiving their graduation scroll. And the greatest gift of all, is to see them excel in their future and remembers this 'old man' as their friend.

Aiyaakk.... itu bukan from love, tapi ikhlas dari hati..(matilah cuba nak cover.. hahahah).

[Cath J] Yah, appreciation will help us go extra miles.
Fuyoo... i'm sure you're one popular teacher also!

Bekas anak2 murid my parents dulu, time raya, depa mai jalan umah kja, bersembang dgn my parents sampai kul 2 pagi!! Maybe Josh punya students pun satu ari nnt boleh buat mcm tu..

Skg bekas anak2 murid my parents dah x leh buat mcm tu sbb depa pun dah bercucu keliling pinggang!! Atuk, nak ice-cream, Atuk nak cokelat!!

A durian a day le Josh..

azizi said...

* dari hati yg tulus ikhlas :-)

Josh said...

[Kak Ja] Whoah... sampai kul 2 pagi?? tak larat Josh nak layan... hahahaha. Anyway, jarang ada student macam ni zaman sekarang. Lepas grad tu luper lah kita. But at least they'll greet us when they bump into us.

[Kingkong] Aiyoooo brader Kingking. I'm sure because they're graduating, and any bodeking or bribery will serve no purpose. They sent those gifts to me on the last of their varsity days. Erm.... ok ker explanation Josh??

[Azizi] Ooooo Cikgu Jiji tersedak yer. Maklumlah, kan Cikgu Jiji famous jugak kat 'sekolah' dia? kan Pinky kan?
Thanks for the compliments.
