Introduction
My teaching practicum school is known as Convent Bukit Nanas (CBN), it is an

all-girls secondary school located at Bukit Nanas, Kuala Lumpur. It was established in
1899 a few years after rivals BBGS (1893) and MGSKL (1896); it is one of the oldest

schools in Kuala Lumpur and is widely known as CBN. Convent Bukit Nanas is
distinguished as a Cluster School of Excellence by the Malaysian Ministry of Education.

My Message

A master can tell you what he expects of you. A teacher, though, awakens your own
expectations. (Patricia Neal)
It is the teachers noblest occupation to inspire students (with knowledge and
morality) to be better individuals in present and future life. The upbringing of the

students is a remark (of the teacher) that their unique personality is enhanced
holistically not by anyones expectation but only their own selves and paradigm.
If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.
(Ignacio Estrada)
It is a clear cut that if the students were unable to grasp (understand) the
teachers teaching and learning process in classroom, then, the teacher should always
figure out and think analytically of what can be done to help them; by teaching and
learning, the way that they are comfortable, suitable and most interested with.

Conclusion
Teaching & Learning provides (teachers) leadership, service, and support in the

development, implementation, and dissemination of learning standards (students). An


educator delivers high quality instruction of learning to ensure students in achieving
better levels. Hence, the clarity of communication, collaboration, coordination, and
commitment are the core values / process in moulding young minds and potentials.
