The scholarship is not a cash award.
The following is taken from the Facebook status of Alina Amir, a Teach for Malaysia teacher with her permission. In these times of plunging education standards, it is both heartwarming and at the same time heartwrenching to see such determined, bright individuals struggle with educating our children.
One must wonder however, how much real change can a few teachers make? The education system requires structural reform from the inside especially.
After 4 months into teaching, I came back from a class this morning, put my books on my desk, coolly walked to the ladies, and broke down; with tears, sobs, frantically fanned myself with my hands thinking that could help calm me down, the whole enchilada.
Something I have not done for a very long time. Those were legit reasons to cry if I wanted to cry. Not a single tear rolled down my cheeks.
I have got nothing to lose and I am sure, as hell is not scared of anybody, no matter who your daddy is. This morning however, was different. I was in a form 4 class, of which I only teach PJK to the six of the girls every week. So what was I doing with the entire class?
I was invigilating their mid year exam, Sejarah Kertas 3 to be exact; An open book test where students are required to write an essay on a topic given. Half of the classroom started to rummage through their bags and looked under their tables for books while the other half put their heads down and went to sleep.
Ten minutes into the exam, they were all just staring at their books, opened to the first page. I went to a boy and asked if he knew what he was supposed to do.
He shook his head and continued staring at his book. I went to one of the girls and asked her to read the question and then looked for the answer in the book. I knew then, that they have never read a single thing from their textbook nor have they learned anything in the past four months of school.
At that moment, I saw their future flashed through my eyes and I wanted to cry. I wanted to cry because it was unfair for them to be sitting for an exam that they are clearly not ready for. I wanted to cry because someone allowed this to happen.
I wanted to cry because as I was explaining to some of the students on how to do the exam and they were eagerly listening, while I was quietly panicking because I am no way near being a Sejarah Form 4 teacher.
I wanted to cry because I felt incompetent, wishing I remembered what I learned back in From 4 so that I can teach them something at that moment. I wanted to cry because it is not their fault. But most of all, I wanted to cry because I have students and I have classes back to back from 7.
I have never actually done this before; asking people to consider teaching. I believe that entering into the profession should come out of your own will.
I have never recommended Teach for Malaysia to anyone.
What are you in for? To have connections with top corporate partners? To meet CEOs of this and that? To be featured in newspapers, radio, magazines, online blogs? Is it the tagline? Is it really for the kids? It needs to be out there that being a teacher, through TFM or not, is not even a tad bit glamorous.
Are you sure you want to be a teacher? I used to think that only the strong should be a teacher. If you have gone through the education system and came out alive, teach.
Teach them to be human beings because they need to know that screaming at a lady is not the way to speak, that not knowing how to read at 13 is not cool, that cursing at your teachers is rude and to talk back to your mother in front of everybody at school would get you to every hell of every single religion in the world.
