A little bit about me.
Hi, I am Lia Triherawati, you can call me Lia or Ibu Lia, I’ve been teaching preschool for almost 4 years in Sekolah Bogor Raya. Being a preschool teacher has been probably the most eye-opening learning experience in all of my teaching career.
Why I teach preschool?
Oh Well, its kinda hard to find an answer. When I first started on the teaching journey, I felt a bit lost. I come home from work sometimes so tired. I get kicked, spit on, bitten and scratched. Dunno what to do. on my first year I have so many questions. I was give up back then. But I was thankful to meet some wonderful teachers who answered all of my questions. Ibu Eka and Ibu Mawar, they are my first mentors, I can never thank them enough for all their guidance! Being a preschool teacher is one of the hardest jobs that I have. It’s often exhausting and frustrating. I learn to take a breath before I respond to most anything. Easier said than done sometimes, though, I know.
After up and down and shake shake shake moment being a preschool teacher, so, here I am now, I love my job and learn more each year. I’ve read many Reggio Emilia books. I haI also love Maria Montessori’s theory. I am passionate about what I do and love to share this with others!
Every child has joy in them. It may be the way the crinkle their eyes when they smile. Or the way they understand my dry sense of humor. Or simply the way they grab my hand when walking to the common area/cafetaria/classroom. They’ll soon learn to be embarrassed and think before they speak. Little by little the world will chip away at their imagination. These tiny beings are very special – they’re people before the bitterness and inhibitions of adulthood sink in. We can learn a lot from them. Be mindful. Listen to what they’re saying.
