Wei teacher tak boleh cakap...
I lost my voice.Suddenly woke up on Friday morning and there I went ...tiba2 tak dak sora..panic ! .macam mana nak kerja ni. A teacher's asset is her voice..How to teach and handle those small angels without my voice..
I was on my way to the office, nak punch nama, a boy maybe in year 1 was running like crazy ..langgar orang tu orang ni..he was having the time of his life...
I yelled out the loudest I could..but it was only a whisper, macam bunyi people whispering in the dark nak hendap pencuri yang tengah panjat tingkap rumah..
Susahnya ya Allah .Macam ni rupanya orang bisu yang nak bercakap. Dalam hati berkobar2 nak say something but nothing came out..
The bell rang, masuk class macam biasa. I used to say " Assalammualaikum. good morning class"
But this time I showed signs that I could not talk...The first reaction of the pupils came from the most talkative di tepi kanan class..
"Wei wei teacher tak boleh cakap.wei teacher tak boleh cakap."
Someone said. "Wei diam wei, teacher tak boleh cakap.kesian teacher "
Everyone was staring at me as if I have four eyes on my face.
I smiled and nodded my head.and whisper."Yes teacher sakit sini,(pointing to my throat.) jangan bising na ..dengar betui2 apa teacher nak cakap.buat apa yang teacher suruh ok"...sampai sini nothing is heard already.I was totally silent..not even a whisper came out...I dah jadi bisu..
So I went to this girl Amalina, she was the brightest in the class..And said in my new mute like voice.
"Amalina tolong teacher, ambik handouts ni, .Ulangan yang kita buat kemarin, suruh depa tengok gambar, kemudian match words to pictures . Cakap jangan bising."
To my dismay she said loud and clear. "Wei , hangpa ambik kertas ni, tengok ,Hangpa suai bagi betui2.kalau hangpa bising teacher lagi sakit, lagi teruk (I didnt say that last sentence ! ! )..
I watched my little angels work in silence. Yang finished faster than the others, went to Amalina and asked." Lepas habis boleh colour dak ? "
Tak payah di ajar Amalina dengan tegas. " ha la, lepas suai, colour elok2. nanti teacher ambik "
I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time...pandainya dia.
Then I saw her went to one of the girls. This particular one memang macam tak cukup umur.Jari asyik dalam mulut..kata apa pun takkan buang jari dia.
Amalina said. " Ni awat tak tulis ni ? apa ? tak bawa pensel pulak ? ish , sapa ada pensel ? bagi Suffie pinjam sat ."
Then to one of the boys "Anas balik tempat hang, pasai apa berjalan, kerja habis dah ? "
She was taking my place in every sense of the word..ha ha..I watched with amusement.
Habis semua kerja, she went round collecting all the papers.Put them in front of me..
"Teacher, siap ! ! "
I said slowly to her antara dengar dengan tidak, but I know she heard, cause I saw that little smile..
"Thank you teacher Amalina.."
When the bell rang I got up , lambai kat depa and smiled.
"Bye bye teacher "...
Tanpa di suruh, sorang terus capai beg teacher, sorang bawa buku2, sorang bawa tumbler air asam teacher ke staffroom..
Life is beautiful.............
