Our Sea-Teacher 5th batch program is formally closed by Ma'am Dena this day. We went to RCI at the morning for the closing ceremony.
Indonesian students and RCI students also staffs of the office were gathering for the last time. We (Erwin, Ami and I) are given chances to say a word in front of them. We told everything that we felt during this program, about school, people, daily life, etc. It was the sadest moment.
We just realized that a month is not enough for us to know all of them very well. If we can, ofcourse we want to stay here longer. I can't speak many things. The point is this is the best experience that i have.

I got my sertificate from RCI and they gave me some souvenirs.

At the evening some of them take us to some places, looking for souvenirs. The last we go to Cloud 9. There is a bridge, it think the high is more than 5 meters and it is very long! but we pass that and we get to the top of the opposite building. We are on the top and we can see Marikina city from the top.


Sea-Teacher's Day 28 (Pinto Art Museum)

Pinto Art Museum is located at Antipolo, Rizal, Philippines. We can see some paints, statue, and decorations. Actually I am not good enough to give any comment about the paint or something like that. But it is a good place for all ages. You can call it is instagram-able. 😀
It has good air, doesn't feel hot as like as in Marikina.
Here some pictures that i took there.

If you get inside this room you can hear the sounds of nature, it feels like you are near the spring.

When we enter this museum, we got a map. That guides us to everyspot that we want to see. Every building have some rooms inside them and also contains unique things or decoration. Pinto Art Museum also has some outdoor spot like the pool in the pict down below.

We were four there.

We can only have pictures there, because taking video does not allow. We also can't bring any foods or drinks inside the museum. There are some rules for the visitors. So, if you wanna go there make sure that you read first all of the rules at the back of the map. 😉 Anyway you are lucky if you still a student, there is a discount for you. Don't worry it is open for filipino and also foreigners.

We enjoyed that place. We know it might be the last day we can go for hangout together in Philippines.

There is a disaster preparedness program in Sta. Elena High School. It is an earthquake drill. All of the students must to participate for once in every year.

At the afternoon, I meet my cooperating teacher, Ma'am Eisse for saying farewell. I give her a souvenir from Indonesia. 
At 5 o'clock I show the video of my final demo and the evaluation form to Ma'am Olive. And I ask to her for give me suggestions. She writes in my notebook.

This day is a sad day. I have to say goodbye to my cooperative teacher. I learn more things from her. She says that even I am in Indonesia, we are still friends.
And a note from Ma'am Olive that I really like is "Presenting yourself to the Students was the best visual aid."
They wish me to be a good Math teacher someday.

With Ma'am Olive, my Supervising Officer.

Thankyou Ma'am Eisse, Ma'am Olive, My sections: Pili, Acacia, Gemelina, Molave, and Mahogany.
Thankyou Sta. Elena High School.
You give my best experience to teach here.


Sea Teacher’s Day 26 (The last teaching day)

Today is Valentine day for them. As a Muslim, I don’t celebrate it. But I do not reject the giving of students. I keep it and just say thank you. This is the only way that I can do for respect them.
Actually I will complete the requirement for 20 hours independent teaching on this day. So at the last fifteen minutes I tell them that today is my last day for teaching them, and tell them that tomorrow I will not come to the classes. This is the hardest part to tell, that tomorrow is the last day I am in Sta. Elena High School and on Monday, February 19 I will go back to Indonesia. I tell it to 8-Pili, Acacia, Gemelina, and Molave.
I ask them to make an evaluation for me, they can give the comments, suggestions, and impression. I got from them all. They write it like a letter.

And after that we take photos together.

I teach about Introduction of Probability in Acacia, but it doesn’t go well as like as before. Because I don’t have the projector cable, the power point file can’t be display, it just can be shown as a picture (.jpg) only. If we want to use the monitor, we need to have our own cable.
For Gemelina and Mahogany, we just reviewing and discussing problem about probability.

There is something special today, when I enter the classroom, they all sing a birthday song for me. Today is my birthday. Everyone who know it say Happy Birthday to me.

A nice dinner with Ma'am Eisse (My CT).

A cake from Mr. and Mrs. Culaba.

  • Happy birthday for me! Haha
It is a great moment for my 21st Birthday.

Actually I just finish for the preparation at 12 o’clock. It is like I don’t want to go anywhere. I am so afraid to be failed. 12:20 I am still in our dorm. Because we think we will late, Ami and I order grab car to go to school. Ami helps me to print out my lesson plan and the worksheets. Because I have to prepare the room and the monitor. Special for final demo, I will use laboratory, room 401.

My first trial is with 8-Pili at 2 p.m. The topic is about Introduction of Probability. My CT watch me here. I am very thankful that I still have times for edit or add something. Because after my class with 8-Pili, my CT gives me more suggestion about the topic. I learn from my first trial, how to use my time as best I can, and also the strategy about delivery of the lesson.
At 4:30 p.m. I do the final Demonstration with 8-Gemelina. I am feel very nervous because there are my CT, Ma’am Dena, Ma’am Olive and my buddy here. They watch me teach. But I just convince myself that there is no one other than me and the students. And great, in one hour we had the discussion, exercise, activities, example and evaluation.

Playing Snake and Ladder for motivation.

Discussing about definition of probability.

Students activity for evaluation.
This is my lesson plan for my final demo.

After my final demo finished, My CT and Ma’am Dena congratulate me.
I am still have two classes at Mahogany and Molave. I teach the same topic but delivery it with the different way, because they are not have monitor/ projector cable.
Now I can sleep well and wait for the result with patient.

To have the Final Demo on Monday makes me very tired. It take a long time to prepare it, make the properties, power point, worksheet, and also practice teaching.
But I need to prepare it well, I hope it will be lessen the mistakes like I did when my first day teaching.
The problem is I can’t find my eyeglasses. I remember exactly that last night I just put it on the table. I only found unknown eyeglasses. I think it is Ma’am Dena’s and she brought mine last night.

At the evening Erwin and Ami returning back her eyeglasses, they just meet her at the grocery and Ma’am Dena was look like very busy. So I can’t get my eyeglasses yet.

I meet Ma’am Olive and she checks my lesson plan for Monday. She explains each points and gives the idea. She gives me 1 hour 30 minutes to fix the lesson plan and 15 minutes to prepare for deliver it like pre-final demo. I don’t bring the book and I don’t have load. I have to complete my lesson plan that time. I am very thankful that I am not alone. I am with my buddy and he helps me a lot.
Just using my notebook without the charger we try to fix it as soon as possible before my notebook dies.

Editing lesson plan.

Still lucky that I have time to show the lesson plan to Ma’am Olive first. While she is looking for the classroom for me, I just remembering the point of my lesson plan, because my notebook is low battery.
It is very nervous, I am feel more nervous than the first day teaching a few days ago. However I have to deliver my lesson plan in front of my Supervising Officer, even I think I haven’t enough time to prepare it well. After first trial, she gives the comment and shows me how to do it, delivery a lesson more interactive.
At five o’clock I ask to Ma’am Olive if I can go and stop it now, I tell her that I am very tired already. She allows me to go and gives some advice about my final demo, because we will only meet again on Monday, the Day of Final Demo.
We go back home after dinner. After I feel in better mood than before dinner. I forget about our plan to go to River Bank after my Pre-final Demo. I feel guilty to my friends who are waiting. When I arrive at home I just feel sorry and explain to them what was happened this day.

Even though I am very tired and just want to sleep this night, but I can’t. I have to make the properties for the activities on Final Demo. My buddies help me again.
