My Old School Days

When I saw this famous blogger Small Kucing's mummy, Mrs Kaldip protesting furiously over the remarks written by his teacher, I had a good laugh instead. So many comments were posted in her Facebook and Watsap on the teacher's stand. Whether the teacher was too psycho stressed or she needs to go back to study proper teaching steps, you can decide.


Take a good look at the teacher's confusing comment and tell me if you understand what is missing? Well, I don't.

Having a wifey who is currently lecturing at a private University, I have been exposed to all the stress and headaches faced by teachers, students and their parents today. It is not easy to elaborate as there is no right and wrongs here. It is the whole intention that counts. However, times have changed and most kids have often been wrongly pampered by their parents but the blames were often pointed to the teachers instead of the mighty parents themselves.

Listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen....Let me speak about my old school days. I had a very hard time and probably worst nightmares too. Some of my teachers were female skunks and one male was Freddy Kruger's cousin.



I went to a famous Christian Brothers school where so much bitter sweet memories have etched into my head till today.

  
In Standard One, we had a female skunk teacher, Mrs Lee who taught me. On my first reading test, I got a BIG SLAP on my face when I could not read out certain words. She could have given me a ZERO and failed me instead of her 5 Dollar palm print on my cheek. The evidence sent my horrified mother screaming to the principal's office before bringing the case to State Education Department until it reached the Ministry of Education!



 We suspected that Mrs Lee was retarded as she also punished my classmates by forcibly stripping off their dark blue shorts and threw them out of the first floor's window!!!! HORRORS! Many of these victims have become prominent people today! I swear that this is ALL TRUE and my friends wore no underwears at that time!!! Muahahahaha!

In Standard 5, we had Mrs Khaw who had this spinster look wearing tight Cheongsams with her sharp rimmed spectacles. She was damn fierce and taught us the perfect Queen's English. So many editors at The Star graduated from her classrooms too. Everyday we had to copy all her Grammars written on at least 6 Blackboards and to memorize them all 100%. Who ever failed to mumble out all the tenses correctly would have to stand on their desks. Mrs Khaw would whip out the huge wooden black board's ruler and hit the student's legs until RED with flames. I never got any beatings as I had to memorize them in fear and had many sleepless nights. Until today I can memorize all the correct Grammars without knowing what tenses they belong to! How silly and stupid of me.

In Standard 6, we had Freddy Kruger's cousin Mr Loh who wore a Karate's Black belt and taught us Mandarin subject. He was so barbaric and would punish any noisy students by squeezing their mouths open before SPITTING THE THICKEST PHLEGM down into their throats!!! Bluek!

I think you all have the happiest schooling memories! Good for you!

  3. yeah, i think the kindergarten teacher must have thought she is teaching genius kids.. the kids are able to read her mind and know what she wants from them even without any instructions..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. actually i think i know what she wanted lah.. fill in the number that comes before or after the number in the brackets.. but that also took me a while to figure out, so was she expecting the same to the kids and even the parents??

      Delete
    2. however, having said that.. one number and one bracket can have unlimited possibilities!! any number can fit into the brackets and tell a story.. unless she has two numbers and one bracket, then they tell the pattern and we know what to put in as the missing number..

      Delete
    3. Hey, I was thinking the same too~

      Like:
      4(5) (6)7
      2(3) (3)4

      No?

      Delete
    4. yalah, she must be asking for the above answer.. but then, can be any number also that make logical sense..

      4(8) = double
      (5)7 = prime numbers
      2(6) = triple
      (2)4 = square root

    5. you all are genius..
      I also don't know what the teacher wants..
      semua ada problem.. teacher got problem, student pun got problem

    6. SP they are really genius! Now it makes sense on the missing numbers but that CB teacher should make it clearer mah! Nanti that botak will climb on teacher's head la.

    7. If genius already, no need send to kindie to learn from the teacher! ;p

  4. So you were from the Saint,,,I used to hate those boys from that school,,,guess what? they have always got the chicks,so to speak,,I got jelos lol,,,even on my tuition class,the girls would not even take a look at me, cos I came from Chung Hwa,they say,not "mat salleh" enough,,,, and worst still,my English back then was like..mmmmmmmmmm not at all impressive..

    Back to school stuff,I guess the current school way of teaching is that "we can't allow the pupils to do wrong and learn from their mistakes,,,if they do mistakes,they are considered,,,"dumb"

    I used to tell my boys,the first thing they needed to learn from school is to "gain knowledge and the second thing they must strive to do is to "be happy" on the path of acquiring those knowledge and third thing is a "true knowledge" is always "contestable"

      We have been following your blogs and you are really a good father & hubby who could cry and laugh so openly. I wished my father was like you but no. My father was so conservative. My father didn't advise me like how you told your sons! Your words are so wise and encouraging man! I like that.

  5. crazy teacher to slap the student on face, and totally retarded to strip the boys off and threw their pants out of the window!! this is such an awful humiliation.. yes, you are right!! should complain such act of the teacher till the MOE.. what teachers are afraid most?? complaints from parents~~

    1. i wonder if she has met some students that have gone hysterical and retaliate?? there was once a student who gone hysterical and take the rotan to chase the teacher along the corridor!! and i guess Mrs Lee would have met one who stripped her bra off and brought that to the headmaster!! wakakaka~~

    2. SPITTING THE THICKEST PHLEGM down into the students' throats!!! OMG, how disgusting!! how can he ever have that thought?? and i wonder how could he have thick phlegm everday as his weapon?? same thing like the retaliation on Mrs Lee.. the best way to give Mr Loh a lesson is to get the kids to shit into his mouth!! wakakaka, now that's equally disgusting but an eye for an eye right?? :D

    3. Teachers are afraid of complaints but when they got them, their psycho-ness level unleashed and they gone even crazier! They will ignore the poor student whose parents put up the complain, and parked him/her in a corner.

    4. I had several incidents with crazy and super fierce teachers during my school days.

      When I entered Primary One, I couldn't read BM or English word at all, including the simplest, such as APPLE and BUKU. Mrs Goh was my class teacher, she scolded me BODOH and STUPID when I kept quiet during the reading session.

      Delete
    5. but then Mrs Goh just raised her voice on you lah, no retarded action taken, unlike this Mrs Lee, she strip the boys off and threw their pants out of the window.. i think she must be a Pedophilia!! she likes to sexually harass the boys!!

      Delete
    6. I wonder annay got kena molested or no, muahahaha!

      It's hurtful too, to get scolded with BODOH everyday... low self-esteem. Luckily Ah Hua was not affected and become who I am today :)

    7. wow that is really bad..
      I could consider one of the bad apples..
      Always kena cane by the teachers...

  7. Beside scolding the students, some teachers like to humiliate their students, too.

    I used cheapo eraser to erase rigorously my mistake written in pencil. Sometimes it would ended up with a hole :p My teacher would hold the book high, poked her finger into the hole (and made it bigger) and showed to the class. Everyone laughed at me :(

  10. I grew up in an era when the teacher was always right and the parents usually on the teacher's side.

    My teachers never knew what to do with me. I was a difficult child who ignored all rules, but ... I got high marks, Dad was a big-shot lawyer and Mum was the chairperson of the PTA! :D The only teacher who wasn't scared of my parents was my maths teacher, who used to throw blackboard erasers at me because I never paid attention in maths class. When I complained to my mum, she told the teacher to aim better!

    She was a bit of a tiger mum. Err. African lioness mum? ^^
