Lack of Aptitude = Lack of Apprehension

Today, I had to reluctantly remove one of my published blog posts because of a misunderstanding of it's content.
The language I use in my writing is complex and I usually write with layers of meaning.
It would therefore require a really well developed mind with good proficiency in the English language to completely fathom my poetic compositions.

Like I said, there was a misunderstanding.
Apparently one or more students from my school found my blog and read the post about the incident where one of my colleagues was harassed by some students.
This student or group of students came up with erroneous allegations against my colleague & myself; claiming that we hate the school and we hate the students in the school.

Au contraire, my dear readers...
These claims brought fourth from an inferior mentality is far from the truth.
I have only described events & reactions as it is.
I have not implied on anyone hating the school nor its students.

I am absolutely loving SMK Puteri Titiwangsa.
The teachers in the English department are cooperative & very helpful.
They offer help even before help is requested!
Furthermore, the administration is just as effective!
We get to photocopy material & exercises for FREE!
We get markers, manila cards, A4 papers, you name it, we get it for FREE!
How many trainee teachers get that from their school?!
Very few to NONE!
For this, I am very grateful to the school & its pragmatic attitude.

I am also absolutely loving my students.
I got 2 classes with two very different levels of proficiency & motivation.
I have a class with high-proficiency & high-motivation while the other is a direct opposite.
But both classes TRY THEIR BEST!
They listen to me in class & they complete work that I assign.
How many trainee teachers get that from their students?!
Very few to NONE!
For this, I am very grateful to my students & their positive attitude.

So my dear friends, family, students, colleagues, evaluators & censors...
Do not believe gossip for its purpose of creation already leaves much to question.
They were created to be juicy enough to spread.
And I bet the person who started these rumours is having a heck of a time being popular & the one stop exposé shrine into the lives of the new male teachers.
They had to make it something sensational so people would be interested!
And sometimes being sensational means sacrificing honesty.

Therefore, read my thoughts for yourselves & see through the eyes of koko'.
God gave you a brain for a reason.
USE IT!
Read, understand (dictionary recommended), critique and if you have a disagreement, leave me a comment!
Bring the issue to its source where something can be done!
Please do not waste the time of other people & please do not tarnish the reputation of people who depend on it for work.

p/s: the censored post will be silently republished with it's original date after I have completed my practicum.
