Thursday, September 22 2011 is my first day in MMSEL (Motivation and Management of Students for Effective Learning) class. I am so enthusiastic to join the class because of the subject and of course the new lecturer. Why am I so enthusiastic in motivation? It’s because of motivation is the power of to make my life alive. I hope by joining this class, it’s not only being the best encouragement for me but also I got many things to encourage my students in the future.
In the first meeting, we discussed what is motivation as we know so far?. For me, motivation is power or such encouragement to make my life alive. Ya actually, motivation is at the heart all of learning or doing something. In the first meeting the learning happen so fun but still meaningful. We share about our motivation, why do we want to be a teacher?. My motivation for being a teacher is just because of my teachers. My teachers have the best influent for me. They are my math teacher in junior high school and my English teacher in senior high school. I am really admire of their way to teach me and my friends. My math teacher always encourage me that,” Hey, Desy come on! Math is not scary as many people think of”. Every single one can master in mathematics by doing practice and practice. So, it’s such a big power for me to make nice relationship with mathematics. It’s not only about the encouragement which motivated me to be a teacher, but also the way of her teaching. I like the method of her teaching. She always makes sure our understanding that we really understand about the concept. Ya, because of it someday if I were a teacher I am going to teach my students like her teaching. For my English teacher, thank you so much for your influence to top up my passion in learning English. She is really passionate in teaching her students. Because of her, I do love more English and ya I got my passion. Being a teacher is one of my passion!.
That’s what happens during the MMSEL class. But in the end of the lesson my lecturer asked us discussed about some learning theories, and it will be continued in the next meeting. See ya… J
