I have been attached by so many teachers in my life, but only a few who really stand out and can be seen as inspiration. There are only a few teachers who inspired me to teach. Those who can touch me for that I can easily adapt and interact.
Having been educated means that having the power to influence thought and that is astounded. One of the reason, I would like to become an extraordinary teacher not just a teacher. Being a teacher who can motivate and push the students to aim for future, being responsible and independent within self, broaden the knowledge and having self-discipline. Those I believe the four aspects can lead my students to succeed.
As a Science teacher, I would encourage students to do problem solving, have the ability to reason, think critically, use the knowledge gained to solve problems, because I think that solving the problem would be an excellent way to educate my students. I also believe students should master the concepts before going into the draft or moving to the next level.
In order to learn more effectively, in addition to methods such as lectures and discussion, this is preceded by several open-ended questions or evidence as argument. And then there are also a variety of methods, which should be used in the classroom such as cooperative learning, project-based learning, problem-based learning, or thematiclearning integrated with other subjects.
I have always tried the best methods to make the process of learning to be an active, interactive and fun. If learning process enjoys the students, then the focus will be obtained. As in the lab, not only doing the experiment but I try to conduct it as effective as I could in order to create the lab becoming a fun environment for them to apply the knowledge.
Apart from that, I have also applied the educational games and connected the learning process with the high tech, as I believe that most of the students are well-aware of the high technology knowledge. Aside from being a manager, a teacher too must have the power to lead. And as a leader, leading the students by giving them the good example is a way to be done. Consequently, I have to be consistent in doing so, both outside and inside the classroom.

The Tales of Good Hope
Sebuah kumpulan kisah seorang guru tentang harapan baiknya
"Saya banyak membaca buku motivasi dan autobiografi orang terkenal, namun tak banyak yg menceritakan dengan sesungguhnya (sebenarnya) dalam buku Pak Hari ini saya menemukan kejujuran (pengakuan atas keterbatasan diri), keterbukaan akan hal yang baru dan keinginan untuk belajar, saya merekomendasikan buku ini untuk dibaca, buku ini menginspirasi saya untuk lebih rendah hati, mengakui kekurangan, bertahan dalam keterbatasan, belajar hal-hal baru dan mensyukuri makna hidup." ~Sri Sustain de Hugo, Guru Biologi SMA Gonzaga, Jaksel
