...so what?

I just want to share about the attitude of some of my students in my class. The attitude that concerned me most is being childish and immaturity. There were two my students who did not come to my class last week. When I saw them in a next class, I enquired about their absence. Both were saying ( at different times) that they were already late to the class, so they were afraid of that I would scold them from coming late to the class. I asked both of them, " If I scold you...So what? " Please, please girls..Grow up!

It is perfectly normal if you at times being corrected by your teacher. I dont want to use the word scold. It is a wrong term. If anyone comes late to my class, I will just ask him, why did you come late to my class. That kind of question is already considered as a scolding to them. That was not a scolding, girls... it is a punishment. Why did you come late to the class, in the first place? 5 minutes late, can be tolerated but not 10-15 minutes!

My dear studnts, you are here at this univ is to study and to learn. You are not perfect..Getting scolded, being corrected and being punished by your teacher are part of growing process, part of learning process.. if you are wrong,you are wrong.. stop making all kind of excuses to defend you. Learn how to say sorry, thank you and please. I am not using any form of physical punishment on you neither foul language to you..It is a matter whther you want to admit your mistakes or not. If any of my students get reprimanded, it does not mean that I hate you..No, never.. But many students liked to pre judge their lecturer before they knew him/her. This is absolutely wrong.. well, for me..I am getting immuned with all the negative comments on me.. when the going gets tough, the gets get going..

hairan kenapa ada student yg tak suka lecturer??tyme sy dulu sy hormat semua lecturer yg mengajar.kena marah tu biasalah..tapi tak pernah simpan dendam di hati..wahai adik2 ku..esok2 bila dah ada kerjaya sendiri baru lah u all sedar bahawa betapa besarnya jasa dan ilmu yg dicurah kepada kita..time tu baru u all sedar kerana merekalah kita jadi insan berjaya...

Saya pernah di 'hek elehkan' oleh pelajar pabila saya mendenda mereka di dalam kelas. Nampak penghormatan pelajar pada pensyarah semakin berkurangan. Mungkin sebab muda lantas mereka menganggap kita boleh bertoleransi? Res ipsa loquitor :)
