A Teacher is A Gift from God

Posted on May 7, 2011 at 10:36pm 0 Comments

My school is a private school. That means the money to pay everything comes from the fees that we charged to the students.To say our staff is underpaid is an understatement.Here in Malaysia,it is common knowledge that private schools either charged too much or charged too little as most of everything done in school is voluntary.Needless to say, I can't afford to hire the best and the most experienced of teachers.Therefore,I opt to hire fresh but capable high school and college graduates.

Being a new principal to a new school

Posted on May 3, 2011 at 5:35am 2 Comments

Hello, I am a principal in an elementary school in Malaysia.My school is a private school.We started the school in 2009 with 30 students from Year 1 (7 years old) to Year 3 (9 year old).In 2010,we had a drastic increase from 30 to 80 students.Presently, we have 120 students.We have also opened classes for 10-11 years old.It is arguable whether it is relevant for me to be here and to learn from overseas school administrators. I've studied cases from schools in North America and almost every woes… Continue

Assalam. Congrats for setting up a private school in Malaysia! I am planning more or less the same thing up north in Perak or Penang. Could we discuss on this? Just to get an opinion from experienced people. Tq.
