2 Weeks Training

Dua minggu di tempat kerja baru. Dimulai dengan training guru baru yang semuanya berjumlah 22. Trainers langsung didatangkan dari Al Irsyad Singapur. Dua orang di antaranya adalah yang kutemui saat interview lalu, mewawancara. Salah satunya, pak Amran Noordin, yang sesi Invitational Education-nya betul-betul mbikin aku merasa banyak dosa sama anak-anak yang lalu. Banyak untintentional disinviting moments yang kulakukan. Untuk ke depannya, mesti lebih sadar diri dong untuk melakukan intentional inviting actions to the students. So does listening, speaking, reading and writing in English. He kept telling us to practice our English to improve it. It's one way to do so. Practice, practice, practice! Practice might make perfectly right, or in contrary, practice makes perfectly wrong. So be careful, 'coz actually practice makes permanent. Other two are mentors, Al Irsyad's teacher, Ms.Nadiyawati and Ms.Zainab. Both are kind and patient. They answered all our questions kindly, whether it's about Al Irsyad and their personal life as well. For several days, pak Amran let me use his personal notebook to work on my Action Plan and Scheme of Work. What a privilege. He said "It's ok, it's 'only' a notebook." Well... for him, it's 'only' a laptop, for me... laptop is special thing, so I really feel honored to be able to use his.
At the end of the training session, we took pictures, the 22 teachers of Al Irsyad Satya's, 2 mentors and 2 trainers from Al Irsyad Singapore. Here we are...! I took the picture using stool as the tripod (what a 'primitive' way to take picture. Haha...!)
