Looking back on 30 years of teaching

AS I reach my 30th year in teaching, I look back and reflect on the journey, I undertook in 1988 when I decided to become an educator. The year before that I was working in an industry as a company trainer and it provided me with in-depth exposure on dealing with different co-workers. I decided that teaching was my calling.

The first 10 years of my teaching life was an uphill struggle. But taking part in extreme co-curricular activities and the college choir brought friends with open mindedness together. It was a great learning and discovery journey. My Kelab Kembara lecturer always told us, “Your life depends on your friend and vice versa” especially when we were performing activities like abseiling or climbing down steep cliffs and we needed to let down ropes for our friends. One wrong move, and the life of the other would be in danger.
