There is a quote from William Arthur Ward, “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” Inspiring students are the aim of most Saint John’s teachers. They are not only helping students to reach for the stars, but they also tried their best to show that there is no limit in reaching one’s achievements. Our Kindergarten’s teacher Ms. Yuliana Kusuma is one of the inspiring teacher who was invited to join the Flag Hoisting to celebrate the Indonesian Independence Day in Tangerang Selatan. She gained the first place of the best kindergarten teacher with achievements in Tangerang Selatan.
Receiving the certificate from Ms. Airin Rachmi Diany, the mayor of Tangerang Selatan, Ms. Yuliana felt proud that she can joined that special flag hoisting as a teacher with achievements. She said, “I did not really think that I will win the first prize. Thank God.”
Inspiring teachers will also inspire their students to walk the extra mile in developing themselves. Achievement is only a way of measurement, but the most important thing is the experience that they gained during the process.
Congratulations Ms. Yuliana! Keep walking your extra mile, and inspire your students to explore more into their talents and passion since their young age.
