PETALING JAYA: Teacher Rafidah Rahmat will not be disheartened by negative comments online directed at her over a lesson delivered during an educational programme broadcast on television.
Despite the criticism she received for the video of her giving a lesson on the human reproductive system in apparently poor English, Rafidah said she remained proud to be a teacher.
"I admit to any shortcomings and am ready to learn and improve.
"I hope all the difficulties that have occurred for me and my friends can be overcome," she said in a Facebook post on Thursday (Feb 18).
The science teacher's video lesson, meant for Year Two pupils in the dual language programme, was lambasted online for her poor English pronunciation and grammar.
In the one-minute-28-second clip that went viral circulated, she is seen swaying while explaining the human reproductive system.
Rafidah's post has garnered more than 3,000 comments of support and asking her never to give up.
