Looking back to many years ago after I graduated in 2003, I would have told my family, friends and even myself, “I will never be a teacher.” But then here I am at Tunas Muda School and you won’t believe that now I say to my family, friends and even to myself, “It’s my calling to teach.”
When people ask my purpose in life, I can say teaching is my purpose now, to know that I’m doing God’s will and every day I am seeing the fruits and nurturing lives together in Tunas Muda, that I call my second home and my family. When I am coming to work, I feel like I am living out my purpose and my purpose has become my dream. Tunas Muda has taught me to dream and believe in whatever we do and that teaching is not only a job.
Teaching is about inspiring, giving to and caring for people around us, whoever they are and whatever their background is.. Every single day, I give my students, whom I called my kids, lessons of life and perceptions. I get them wondering and exploring the thinking and learning beyond the classroom and I want to see them being the best that they can be. This is all because of Tunas Muda’s philosophy and beliefs which has taught me a lot about why and how to teach; to lead and to give from the heart is the most important thing a teacher and a leader should do. Tunas Muda helps everyone to grow and to be the best that we can be. It is a home for me where I learn to teach and teach to learn. I am so blessed and thankful to be part of the Tunas Muda family in my teaching journey.
