Basic Mobile Video Production by SukaSuka
|SMK Tabuan Jaya Represents!|
I really wanted to spend this Saturday morning with my new baby boy & wife. However, I realized that if I didn't volunteer, my students would miss out on this golden opportunity to learn from skilled content producers & access a creative hub for FREE.
You see, many of my students come from more rural parts of Sarawak & will benefit tremendously from programs like these. You know, those that city kids take for granted. Also, my students need more exposure to English used outside of the classroom. Organizers said 11 students in the letter, I called & asked for 15.
As a Head of Panel, I have the authority to pull rank & make a colleague do this instead. Junior colleagues, especially those who are unmarried, are often victims of "the wrath of the seniors". Having tasted the bitter wrath of my seniors myself, I decided a long time ago to never do this to my juniors. Instead, I will lead from the front, by example. Be a mentor. Be an inspiration. Rather than a tyrant/manipulator. Bring out the best in my people, rather than try to shape them into what I want them to be.
Education is a profession that cannibalizes its young. It's up to us, a new generation of teachers, to say enough is enough. We will lead the way to a profession that equips its future generations to be better than the last.
Here is the hilarious video my students produced.
