56 dedicated teachers honoured at awards ceremony
KUALA LUMPUR: The love of children and a passion for teaching are what drives Bestari Teacher Award recipient Rohani Mat Nawi.
Rohani, who teaches Islamic studies at SRA Al-Taufiqiah here, said every teacher should treat their students like their own children.
“When you treat them like your own children, what you teach will be more sincere. I hope my students will put into practice what they have learnt in school, and hopefully, they will be successful in future,” she said, adding that being an educator was not an easy task.
Rohani, who has 28 years of experience, advised young teachers to teach whole-heartedly to mould future leaders of Malaysia.
Another award recipient, special education teacher, Muhd Saidi Shafie, said being a teacher to special needs children required a lot of patience.
