Reflection of the 1st Week

27 Sep

At the first week we learned about what is motivation, intrinsic Aand extrinsic motivation, whats our motivation to become a teacher and who is/are people that inspire us to become a teacher and why

Motivation is the reason(s) that make us do something in our life. Motivation is very important because it will determine our way to reach something that we want.

Intrinsic motivation is reason(s) that arise from our own self to do something, whereas extrinsic motivation is reason(s) that arise outside of our self. The reason can be other people or environment.

All of the things that we do have motivation, including why we want to be a teacher. Especially for me, the motivation is very important, because it will sustain me to do hard and smart work to reach my goals.

I want to be a teacher because I think that teacher is a profession that can be a bridge to reach my dreams in life. Teacher is the one who have direct interaction with students, so teacher will know what students need to improve their ability in life. Become a teacher is the way for me to get the basic knowledge and ability about how education should be conducted.
Although, at the first time I graduate from High School I thought I didn’t want to be a teacher.Teacher is the one who educate people. The meaning of educate people is not only delivering material in class, but its more about forming students’ mindset and make them eager to learn (seek information/knowledge/ability,etc) that they need. I thought that responsibility is very huge for me.

However now, I think that teacher’s responsibility is a challenge for me if I want to be a person that give advantages to others. That is make others’ life become better through education. Anies Baswedan said that education is the escalator for people to have better life.

There are many people that inspire me to become a teacher. The one who inspire me to become a good teacher teacher is my lecture. I think, he is an outstanding teacher. He cares and friendly to his students and always well prepare in his teaching. And his ability to motivate people is one of unforgettable things for me. He said to me that, “you are already outstanding from the fist time.” And it motivate me to proof that I can be outstanding.

    There are so many people around us who inspire us to be able to realize a dream / goal of life. one word can strengthen a person that he is able to achieve their dreams, one word is also capable of making a person does not have meaning in his life. hopefully we will be able to give positive energy to people around us …. 🙂
