For teaching experience, I teach a senior high school in Bekasi. That was my friend’s, Annisa Pane, English student in SSE, senior high school. We are 5 students from mathematics department and 5 students from English department. My friends and I ask a lot about that school to Pane. She gave us some information that needed, such as the environments of that school, the teachers, and the students’ characteristics. That school is quite far from my house. I have to set off from my home at 5.30 am in every day. In last week, I have been there for four times, and I will share to you day by day.
First day (Monday): at 7 o’clock, there is flag ceremony, and we have to participate in that ceremony. We were in the teacher’s line, it seems like we are the real teacher in that school. That’s one of nice experiences. After that, we have meetings with the school vice principal, school coordinator, and master teachers. We were introducing each other, and then they distributed the schedule for us, and asked us to consult with our master teacher. The next activity, we observed the class that we want to teach, but at that time there was no time for mathematics subject, so we only observed the students. I observed them when they were learning Bahasa Indonesia. The students, especially the boys, are very noisy and some of them annoying each other.
Second Day: I observed my master teacher when she taught in the class that I want to teach (X-A). She is very discipline and firm. After that I consult with her about what material that I should teach on the next day. From that school, I went to campus to prepare the lesson plan and the material for teaching.
Third Day: this is my teaching experience, for the first time I should teach the real class alone. I felt very nervous at that time, but the students are very kind to me. They put respect to me, it made me felt happy 🙂
Fourth Day: I observed my friend, when she was teaching in her class (X-B). The students are better than in my class. They are more active in teaching and learning activity. And my friend (Desy) can explain the material to the students better than me too. After that, I taught again in my class, but I have not enough preparation. So, I got confuse how to manage my class well and confuse how to transfer my knowledge to my students.
