We learn to love to learn~Ron Clark

It is my second time to watch this movie of THE RON CLARK STORY. When the first time is when I’m not the educator profession, but the feeling of watching the movie are same, the first time I watched it, I was deeply touched. I have watched it for the second in the class, and each time I watched I have more of an appreciation for what Ron Clark has done for these children. In which I am feel excited and inspiring me and that person was a real not only for the drama.

The RON CLARK story follows the inspiring tale of an energetic, creative and idealistic young teacher who leaves his small North Carolina hometown to teach in a New York City public school. Through his passionate use of special rules for his classroom, highly innovative teaching techniques and an undying devotion to his students and helping them cope with their problems; Clark is able to make a remarkable difference in the lives of his students. For one young girl trying to attend school while helping to raise her brothers and sisters, he offers a chance for her to overcome her situation and become one of the class' top students. For a young man with a penchant for graffiti, he offers an ideal outlet for artistic expression. Even when he is almost overcome by pneumonia, Clark continues to work with his students, hoping that he can raise their test scores to an acceptable level, or possibly even higher.

The drama comes from these kids who have all but given up on themselves. Watching the kids triumph is moving. I was amazed that one person had so much faith and truly believed in these children when no one else did. I wish that every teacher out there had the passion and love for their students that Ron Clark has for his. Every child needs to feel important and loved. I am grateful for the example and for all that you have done for your children that Clark have taught. What Clark do is remarkable and Clark have inspired me to teach children with passion and love. And some of people out there who watch this movie were become inspire and set him to be a role model! I thought, and I still think that I will aim for that. I'm even inspired just by reading about Clark inspiration... teachers are in such a powerful position for change. As the quote stated

‘The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been.’

~Madeline L'Engle

I love this movie so much because it made me strive even more to achieve my dream of teaching. Watching these movies makes me so proud that there are teachers like Clark that don't give up on their students, like some teachers i have known, Clark believe and know they can achieve greatness. It is teachers like Clark that give students a chance to live to their full potential. Clark are truly a educator , and his determination and achievements well always be kept close to my heart. As the inspire word I get from this movie..

‘We learn to love to learn’ ~Ron Clark and I would look as a part of an education is the lifelong learning and nothing will last forever.

Reflection on Sang PEMIMPI......

Sang Pemimpi is the continue journey of Ikal’s life, but in more mature life. The story is teratology of Laskar Pelangi, which a lot of moral values of the younger generation, adapt the learning environment in the insufficient condition of the school facilities, teacher and also number of student. But with the high level of motivation from his friend, his continue succeed in their life.

Laskar childhood story

Sang aldulthood story 

This is a story about three children Malay Belitung, Ikal, Arai, Jimbron who has a dream to set foot into the Sorbonne, Paris, France, and then explore Europe come to Africa. But not all of them can be gained with a simple dream that all they have gained with the spirit of sacrifice and struggle there is no delete. As poor Malay children they must work day school morning and evening study. Not only is it on the road, they are also faced with the vagaries of the world's youth, which made them difficult to focus on their initial goals, friendships, trust, love, the decision , delinquency, poverty has always been a major barrier that has prevented them to get what they like. They are hard it is to help themselves and help elderly people close to pension; they are willing to go home once a fortnight to get an education. As a poor child living in the village, their dream are very large and is considered unlikely, but as a poor man just dreams that give them courage to continue living, and the purpose to get up at three in the morning and working as a coolie Master.
Still in my mind the statement of

Mari memimpikan masa depan yang lebih baik. Bermimpilah tentang masa depan, bekerjalah untuk saat ini, dan belajarlah dari masa lalu. Dunia ini ada untuk ditaklukkan, keinginanku adalah keabadian. Seperti yang di impikan Achiles, seperti para tokoh bersejarah dunia, mereka abadi, walau raga mereka telah tiada, tapi karyanya akan selalu diingat sepanjang masa.

” Tanpa mimpi orang-orang seperti kita akan mati…” That was one of the original story inspired by words from the story Sang Pemimpi.

 They have no fixed plan or fee to extend their school to Jakarta, with the sacrifice Jimbron, Ikal and Arai.  Seeing the money is, daring and high morale went to Jakarta. Wandered until they settled there Bogor worked hard and finally selects the job even Curls should be separated from Arai. Lord of life was already arranged someone even indispensable path between islands Curls and Arai was finally able to meet again when they apply for a scholarship to Paris. Son of the poor out of the bias eventually become masters of hard struggle, determination and tenacious, and given the opportunity to study in Universit√© de Paris, Sorbonne, France
But in my point of view, the teacher play an important role to the student, whereby the teacher give the higher motivation as they are the individual that student respect and obey anything what that their  teacher said during class. In this story, there have two type of teacher, the old,traditional,strict and firm and another one that look their student as their friend, who are energentic,young and pleasurable in class environment. Both personality is the good but most student when we ask, sure that they more preferred the aggressive one that started the class with the good induction; start with motivation quote as the good practical in class. The student more likely get inspire by those words and keep in their minds. When I become a teacher, which one I going to be? But what is more important, as the teacher, they not only responsible delivery the knowledge to the students, but also responsible to develop the student’s interest, shape the student’s characteristic and also create the student to become better person in future.

My teaching philosophy


My classroom will be interesting and enjoyable environment where the classroom itself is different with other classroom. I will let the student to show they are potential in develop some ideas on the learning activity in class. Then I will have the T & L in interesting way: for example on the reading subject, where some student gets boring and not interested in that subject. So as the interesting ways of learning, not only refer the text book but also include material based learning.
The material based learning is the concept of learning through the material that can best use for learning process. It is include through paper cutting about an issue regarding to the subject, field trip to the expose student about the real situation of environment, interesting games as the revision at the end of session and also class activity in group discussion.
My classroom wills the interesting environment where I will develop the student deeper understanding in the subject my review some tips from the experience. I believe my student have the potential to success in learning, but the main element on learning are the interest and attention in class. As the solution I will shared my experience of learning through BUFSU learning style and mnemonic technique. My classroom is more enjoyable when we are together creating the words as the clue for the subsection in reading subject. I believe my classroom will become the place where they are have the at least get 90% from the lesson out of my class.
