What they say about teachers?

Just received an email from my secondary school teacher. Very meaningful, share with ya all! - Geo

In honour of teachers!
The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life.

One man, a CEO (proud of being a professional), decided to explain the problem with education. He argued, 'What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?'

He reminded the other dinner guests what they say about teachers: 'Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach.'

To stress his point he said to another guest; 'You're a teacher, Mary. Be honest. What do you make?'

Mary, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, 'You want to know what I make? (She paused for a second, then began...)

'Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.

I make a C+ feel like the Medal of Honor.

I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents can't make them sit for 5 without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental.

You want to know what I make?' (She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table.)

''I make kids wonder.

I make them question.

I make them apologize and mean it.

I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.

I teach them to write and then I make them write.  Keyboarding isn't everything.

I make them read, read, read.

I make them show all their work in maths.  They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.

I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know in English while preserving their unique cultural identity.

I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

I make my students stand, to say the Pledge of Allegiance to the National Flag, and sing the National Anthem, because we live in this great country.

Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life.'
Mary paused one last time and then continued,then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant.....  You want to know what I make?

I MAKE A DIFFERENCE . What do you make Mr. CEO?'

His jaw dropped, he went silent.

and all your personal teachers like mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, grandparents, your spiritual teachers -------

Although things are not perfect

Because of trial or pain

Continue in thanksgiving

Do not begin to blame

Even when the times are hard

Fierce winds are bound to blow

God is forever able

Hold on to what you know

Imagine life without love

Joy would cease to be

Keep thanking for all the things

Love imparts to thee

Move out of "Camp Complaining"

No weapon that is known!

On earth can yield the power

Perseverance can do alone

Quit looking at the future

Redeem the time at hand

Start every day with thanksgiving

To my treasured Foundation TESL Semester Three

Upon you I have confidence and faith

Victorious and valour in your imminent battle

We'll run this race with gallantry

Xalting God; for mercy and wisdom

Yes, there'll surely be delightful times ahead

Zenith waits in glory....Foundation remains history!


With love, Mr. John Roy Chacko

DEdicATed to our BELOVED juniors~~

Early of the year, we did not even think of having juniors.. and we thought we are the ONLY ONE here.. so it kinda make us feel a bit "privileged"... but when we were told that there will be juniors entering, we were not surprised at all.. maybe because, we dont reli care... (DUH~~).. i mean, no offence, but we're always cool on any announcements given though certain announcements do bring us heart-attacks...

anywayz, i guess its a bit too late to say this but yeah, WELCOME TO IP KAMPUS KENINGAU, our fellow juniors... though there were some conflicts (are they?) but yeah, we're cool about it.. maybe u think that ur seniors are not that friendly to u but at times we need our own privacy too... not all seniors are easily approachable, so choose well... (HAHAHA! LOL)... NO LAH, we're actually nice juz that we prefer doin our own stuffs and seldom mingle wit the juniors... so, as the editor of this blog and the "youngest" one in the class aka same age wit u (DONT UNDERESTIMATE ME!), here are some tips n advices for u to ponder...

1. Respect ur lecturers and seniors... never step on their head though they are super-nice and friendly... they have their own limits and im sure u do not want to enter into their BLACKLIST!!
2. Do u know that one smile means everything to another? so, plz smile when u meet ur seniors (NOT ONLY US BUT OTHERS) since ur gonna meet them always... Check on ur attitude as attitude = 100% success....
3. Ur a TEACHER and not a kid anymore.. so plz think maturely and act mature too!! no one wants a CHILDISH teacher right?
4. Dont think ur seniors are always nice.. we have our own personalities too... dont dare to go against them or even try to talk bad about them... WE HAVE SPIES AROUND HERE.....
5.if u have a BOYFRIEND or GIRLFRIEND, dont go against the law... "u know wat i mean..."
6. if u need help, ur seniors are here.. but we dont do the "spoon-feeding" thingy bcoz ur big enough to search, analyse and think critically...
7. always prepare for ur studies coz it aint that easy... Sem 1 may seem like a honey moon or a piece of cake, but not the following sems... we went thru it and guess wat, we grow in terms of experience from it... experience is a great teacher for us... SEM 2 and SEM 3 are critical semesters and dont think u can pull thru it juz like tat...

In conclusion, the CHOICES ARE IN UR HANDS~~ choose well and think properly before makins decisions.. coz we seniors are always paying attention on u and yeah, ur our junior, we are ur senior.. treat us well and we'll treat u well WITH CONDITIONS.... (bwahahahaha!!) anywayz, good luck in everythin u guys are doin and dont give up coz we aint gonna let things get us down.... =D

All of these sentence types further fall into four basic sentence type categories in English.
  • Simple
  • Compound
  • Complex
  • Compound - Complex
A.    Simple Sentences


A simple sentence is a sentence with one independent clause.

Note what the definition does not say. It doesn't say that a simple sentence is short or easy to understand. It doesn't say anything about phrases. A simple sentence can have forty-seven phrases, but only one independent clause.

Let's look at an example:
I love simple sentences.
(That's easy enough. It is obviously one independent clause.)

But look at this:
Being an English teacher with a penchant for syntactical complexity, I love simple sentences.
(It's longer, more challenging and contains bigger words, but it's still a simple sentence. Being an English teacher with a penchant for syntactical complexity" is a participial phrase. "With a penchant" and "for syntactical complexity" are prepositional phrases.)

Look at this:
Being an English teacher with a penchant for syntactical complexity, I love to read simple sentences upon getting up and before going to bed.
(Amazingly, it's still a simple sentence. I am piling on phrase after phrase, but the sentence still contains only one independent clause.)

Simple sentences contain no conjunction (i.e., and, but, or, etc.).

  1. Frank ate his dinner quickly.
  2. Peter and Sue visited the museum last Saturday.
  3. Are you coming to the party?

B.     Compound Sentences


A compound sentence contains two or more independent clauses.


I love conjunctive adverbs, but my students love each other.
(The independent clauses are in blue. This sentence contains no dependent clauses)

Sometimes a compound sentence contains more than two independent clauses.


I love conjunctive adverbs; my students love each other, and we all love holidays.

Sometimes longer linking words can be used.


I can name several conjunctive adverbs; consequently, my friends are impressed.

Compound sentences contain two statements that are connected by a conjunction (i.e., and, but, or, etc.).

  1. I wanted to come, but it was late.
  2. The company had an excellent year, so they gave everyone a bonus.
  3. I went shopping, and my wife went to her classes.

C.    Complex Sentences


A complex sentence is a sentence that contains one independent clause and one or more dependent clauses.


Because life is complex, we need complex sentences.
(The independent clause is in blue. The dependent clause is italicized.)

Because people know that I am an English teacher,they make allowances for how I dress and what I say.
 (This sentence contains four dependent clauses. The independent clause is in blue. Note that two of the dependent clauses are inside of and part of the independent clause. Don't be alarmed. That happens all the time.)

Complex sentences contain a dependent clause and at least one independent clause. The two clauses are connected by a subordinator (i.e, which, who, although, despite, if, since, etc.).

  1. My daughter, who was late for class, arrived shortly after the bell rang.
  2. That's the man who bought our house.
  3. Although it was difficult, the class passed the test with excellent marks.

D.    Compound - Complex Sentences


A compound-complex sentence contains two or more independent clauses and one or more dependent clauses.


Because I am an English teacher, some people expect me to speak perfectly, and other people expect me to write perfectly.
(The dependent clause is underlined, and the independent clauses are in blue.)


Some people tell me that my grading is too tough, and others tell me that my assignments are boring.
(The independent clauses are in blue. The dependent clauses are italicized. Note that the dependent clauses occur within the independent clauses. It often happens.)

Compound - complex sentences contain at least one dependent clause and more than one independent clause. The clauses are connected by both conjunctions (i.e., but, so, and, etc.) and subordinators (i.e., who, because, although, etc.)

  1. John, who briefly visited last month, won the prize, and he took a short vacation.
  2. Jack forgot his friend's birthday, so he sent him a card when he finally remembered. 
  3. The report which Tom complied was presented to the board, but it was rejected because it was too complex.
