Little kids blown my mind. I laugh, and they are laughable. They sometime fight and cry, and sometime its funny to see them behave like that. Yes, I like Early Childhood Education. Pre School + Lower Primary is my deal! My 2nd sister is also a teacher, but she’s doing the upper primary. I don’t have guts to teach upper primary. What I mean is, I don’t favor it; especially what goes around the environment of its psychology. I can, but I will try to avoid it at best.
My eldest sister is a pediatrician, yeah a medical practitioner who deals with most infants and young children in Brunei Hospital named as Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha a.k.a R.I.P.A.S. I think what I have common with her is, we like child development. But for me, through education, and for my sister through health care and treatment. I play the teacher role, and she plays the doctor-doctor.
Oh my, I don’t thing our professions have any common with my brother. He is a mechanical engineer with a Master on his belt. I don’t think he involve with young children at his work place. Despite the odd, my little sisters like him, annoys him, talk with him better than I do.. Weird!
Back to ECE, Sometime my envy strikes to watch how well my pre-school teacher in my school do her work at best. Not just that, her activities with the pre-school kids are so awesome. Sometime I wish to join in! But too bad, I’ll just interrupt her lesson.
For a male species, it is not a popular culture in my country to teach Pre-School. Most are female teachers. But if I had the chance, assistant pre-school teacher for teaching English would be a nice opportunity.
Oh btw.. I teach ICT for Pre-School. And.. seriously I’m very grateful for my former principal given me such opportunity! I was really happy, and I was like yeah I’m teaching pre-school kids! Thank You in my lifetime. I still remember the days as a student-teacher at Sekolah Rendah Pintu Malim, Brunei 1. While there, I taught few lessons for 2 pre-school classes; and it was fabulous. The pre-school cooperative teachers was so inspiring and awesome! They help me a lot, especially understanding the young children psychology, and how to take care of them and in the same time how we educate and nurture them.
