My school, Malaysia

I am very glad to have got involved in this project of educating the children. I pray for them everyday.

Hello, I am a teacher at the ABC Learning centre, in Kulai, Johor.
I started to teach in this school by chance last January. I never had a chance in life to get close to a refugee, let alone a Rohinga, from Myanmar.
My life changed when I started to teach and coach them. As I indulged my teaching and care for them, I began to grow very fond of them. When they came in first undisciplined, untidy, dirty, unkempt hair, torn n dirty clothes on them.
Slowly but surely, I started to discipline them, with set school rules,which they had to follow. I am a very strict teacher. Lessons they learned were repeated a few times,so they can be refreshed. This year especially, I took on a new montessori class of forty two children. Half the year is gone, I see tremendous improvement in them. Montessori activity lessons are on going everyday. Indeed, I am very glad to have got involved in this project of educating the children. I pray for them everyday. TQ.
