PROFESSIONAL STATEMENT Practicum has been considered as a side where student

teachers practice the art of teaching in real school context with student teachers assigned to one another and class for specific block of time (Zeichner, 1996). I had been assigned to do my practicum

at SK Kem Terendak 2 for 12 weeks, beginning from 28th January until 26th April 2013. During the practicum we had been assigned to teach English (major) and Science (minor). My expectations for this practicum are to try to collect as much experience I can get. Besides that this is my opportunity to practice all the theory that had been taught in two semester of lecture. It was quite an exciting but yet challenging opportunity because I knew that different school had a different atmosphere and way of doing thing.

I used to do thing on my own and believe that whenever I do thing good and never burden others my life would be just fine. Therefore be such a friendly person would be such a good thing to do whenever we were at new place. Being a practicum student teacher for this three months also required me to make sure that I able to reach the school on time or earlier. I would make sure I always keep on updating my portfolio to avoid any complication and confusion later on. I hope in the end of my practicum I would be able to fully understand the . I also will always keep keep on reminding myself to avoid procrastination because it would keep me in trouble.

I believed that teacher expertise is the most important element that would determine the pupils’ achievement and as trained teacher I want to become an effective teacher than I was before and face the challenge of teaching the Y and Z generations. I should be able to achieve my objectives whenever I teaching at class and besides that also know how to conduct a curriculum activity or any program that been held in the school.
