Met up with fabulous #Malaysian teacher Farizah Ahmad who is currently a #Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant at the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, Washington.
Talked about our education system & our individual experiences. Often, I find that outstanding teachers are working really hard for their students without recognition or appreciation from their administration. After a few years of this, no wonder so many leave the teaching profession with a bad taste in their mouths.
A new semester begins in Malaysia & I'm thankful that there are still many good teachers out there who are bridging the gap between the education system & what it takes to make a difference in the lives of their students. We need to find new ways to empower & retain our best. Otherwise, what will be left?
