Another Brick In The Wall

I have been tagged by a sweet gentleman, he's all the way from Florida and his name is Charles. It's a tag on Education. So let's fulfil his 'academic' spell on me. Diving in mate, SPLASHHH!!


What was the name of the teacher that was most influential in your life from grades K through 6?

I'd say the top teacher here would be Miss.Ingrid Martenstyn, among some other great teachers ofcourse. She was unbelievably kind and strict at the same time. She stood out from the rest cos something wierd happened when I was in Year 3 and that stuck in my head for good. I was always one of the best students in class (not bragging here) and almost all teachers knew that. And Ms.Ingrid was my Year 3 class teacher, and she too appreciated my work and my good behavior etc. I was also the class monitor then hehe. But one afternoon I got so chattery during class (yakking away with another girl and we were only 8yrs old LOL!), Ms.Ingrid punished me and my friend. She made us both go to the front of the class and stand facing the window (and our backs to the whole class). Outside the window, far away, I could see the ocean. I actually enjoyed that 20mins or so :). But what struck me most was the lesson I learnt out of that experience. I was not the kind who got punished in school...I was always great with my work and with the teachers. So when Ms.Ingrid punished me that day for the very first time, I learnt that no amount of good work can save you when you are in the wrong (as heart-breaking as it was for the 8yr old me back then, I had to accept it with dignity). When you do something wrong, you must pay a price for it no matter how good you may have been in the past. That lesson stuck in my head for good and I'm glad about it. Thank you Miss.Ingrid, you taught me to accept my faults with grace.



What subject did you favor in High School?

I was to become a doctor you know...yes that was my dream. But thank God for the greater benefit of the humankind, I didn't become one. Let me tell you why. Since I wanted to become a doc someday, like a big-fat doc in the making, I joined the Biology stream in High School. The first lab practical was to do with dissecting roaches and some were all over the place, having escaped out of their jars. Well guess what, that was the last day of my Medical career cos I ran out of the lab screaming (I'm traumatised by roaches, I can't stand them). Yes a roach changed my entire career (some of you already know of this quite tragic story). I then joined the Maths stream and eventually became an IT Consultant. My fav subject in H/S therefore was Applied Maths and I topped it in HSC - don't ask me how and no tuition will be given.





Did you attend a university and if so, did you attain a degree?

Yes and Yes. I went to UNSW (University of New South Wales, Sydney) for both my Bachelors in Comp Sc and Masters in Commerce & Economics. I have 2 degrees to my self-worth hehe.





Do you learn best through books, by watching, or hands-on?

I hardly read books these days. But I did learn alot from books back in school. I used to read alot of classics as a requirement for literature readings and began to love them alot. I learnt so much from books like Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility, The Class, Little Women, Great Expectations, David Copperfield, Wuthering Heights etc etc. I believe some of the books we read as kids have so much input into character building and foundation. I also learn by watching things and people around me - it's ntaural I guess. And I also learn from experiences in life - that's my biggest teacher.
No amount of academic qualifications can teach you about life like experiences do. I believe both cognitive and behavioral learning happens best through experiences.




Has education been an on-going process for you?

For few years it was on-going but now all my academic needs have being fulfilled - however I believe Learning never ends. It's a continuous process till death.

Everyday there's something new to learn.




How do you feel about that?

How do I feel about Education? Well it's required for doing well in career but not necessarily for doing well in life. To do well in life, you need to be able to Learn from experiences. And if you can't do that, no amount of education can help you to lead a satisfied life. As you can see there are so many 'educated' people around but not enough sensible people around.




What seven people are you tagging to do this?

Anybody who wishes to educate us on them may take this tag up :).


Thanks Charles it was fun doing this tag. Hope you enjoyed reading my answers too. I'd like to end this post with 3 clever quotes on Education.


Education is one of the few things a person is willing to pay for and not get.
by William Lowe Bryan

Education is one of the chief obstacles to intelligence and freedom of thought.
by Bertrand A. Russell

Education is what remains when we have forgotten all that we have been taught.by George Savile

Menchie said...

I was going to be a doctor too but thought that my dad was so strict and had this rule about no boyfriends until you finish school and I did the math on that if i took up medicine...go figure! LOL!

Seriously, I get faint at the sight of blood.

But whoa girl! you're good at math!!!

tulipspeaks said...

awww.. thanks for educating us on you darling.

hehehehehe..

u know..i wanted to do medicine too. actually i still want to. :(


ammu.

Vivhyd said...

Well good to know about your Educational background..

You reminded of my school experience.. ah we all have our favorite teachers isnt it? and the punishments.. hehe.. that too they would be very innovative at ways of punishment..

Math loving gal? hmm.. cool!

Jay said...

If it weren't for my overall lack of compasion and insensitivity I would have gone to med school. LOL

Okay, actually I considered med school at one time but decided I wasn't interested.

I only have one little old bachelor's degree. Maybe I should go back and get my master's to keep up with you? ;-)

Parag said...

The best thing that Education does is changes the perspective with which we look at life..
Now to your questions ..
The most influential teacher in my life was a person by the name Brother Conrad D'Souza (I used to study in a convent school).. He spent a lot of time teaching us things that were not a part of syllabus.. Which developed a further probing habit in me.
My favourite subjects were Mathematics and Science.. Though I also like History.. especially European history..
I studied Civil Engineering and then went on to do a MBA in marketing and finally work in a financial job !!
I think you learn through a mixture of Books, Watching and experience..
and of course, Education is an ongoing process.. There are also things that we learn from our children.. Hence the phrase "Child is the father of man".. Experience remains the best teacher

On 3 quotes on educations.. here goes

"Highest result of education is tolerance" .. Helen Keller

"Education consists of mainly what we have unlearned" .. Mark Twain

"History is a race between education and catastrophe".. H G Wells

Nadim said...

you know, i am wondering, if some day, somebody will tag you with something called 'Tell us your real age Tag', would you take it? Just wondering. Cos you see, some (all) women have this thing abt age!

anyways, well done tag. Not the most interesting (for the simple reason that education is boring, sex education being a exception.) but knowledgeable!

My prayers are with prachi and her family. Its high time God prove his existence!

Aditi said...

hmmm... my plans to be a doctor ended on the realization that i couldnt stand sight of my own blood forget other ppls

Anonymous said...

my best education was the one i received through ragging

i was a skinny kid and (still am)
HIGHLY INTROVERTED

then i was ragged
physical and psychological

i was stripped and made to look at my self in the mirror

this is u i was told

then my cherished beliefs and values were questioned

i was destroyed
my ego was destroyed

i had to reinvent my self

but i survived and learned to accept my self for what i am

God did not make me a hunk
but He made me unique

i learnt to love my self
then i exposed my self on blog

and made a lotta good friends
one blogger came all the way from US to meet me

we had been net friends for a year
we had a lovely time in GOA

Jim said...

NADIM

sex education u will find on SEX COUNSELLOR, one of my many blogs

Jeevan said...

Even I am quite student, sometimes I too got slaps form miss for chatting with friend.
I should thank to roaches for sending you here, if u have become doctor u would be busy and where the time to blog:)

Being not crossing high school, felt like I have started learning life after become a blogger… and different experience on reading newspapers, magazines.

lee said...

Oh, come on, keshi! I CAN'T BELIEVE that you would ever get in trouble for talking too much! (Of course I'm joking :) ;) ).

Jewel Rays said...

I love this post Keshi. Got to know u alittle more there.

***When you do something wrong, you must pay a price for it no matter how good you may have been in the past. That lesson stuck in my head for good and I'm glad about it.

Amazingly said Keshi and true.

***Well it's required for doing well in career but not necessarily for doing well in life. To do well in life, you need to be able to Learn from experiences.

Agree with u.:)

Kavi said...

Applied math !! I was light years away from it !! :)

Looks like you've had a very interesting journey !!

Autumn Storm said...

Nicely done, Kesh. :-) Hope you have a nice weekend.

-----------------------------------

Nadim age is indeed a secret when it comes to women :). Its a bit like how men r secretive abt the truth hahaha!

sex education was yukk...I mean bakk in school. One of my friends passed out when they showed slides of Male sex organ. ROFL!


-----------------------------------

Neihal said...

thats why I like reading tags, they tell us so much. :D

vishesh said...

:) cool one...i need no education...;)

we learn a lot away from bokks as we from them...

i hate to read anything my skl text books...i usually grasp a lot when the teacher is teaching...and i don't read anything more than once...very rarely..

DJ said...

***I learnt that no amount of good work can save you when you are in the wrong
-> nice one :)


***No amount of academic qualifications can teach you about life like experiences do.
-> i totally agree with you on this one... i do not believe in formal education... formal education does not teach how to be a good person :)

***there are so many 'educated' people around but not enough sensible people around.
-> true again... have been looking for 'em since ages... found just a handful of 'em...

priya said...

Education is just a set of books and to learn more, every step of our life we deal day today gets educated more...

Aidan said...

Thanks keshi, now i have to have Pink Floyd playing all night, in the middle of a live version of the Dogs of War.

So very true you get more out of just living than sticking your head in a book, academics has its place, but it s nothing to a rounded education in the school of life:)


"Everyday there's something new to learn." well said

Priyanka Sarkar said...

ketki said...

it was nice knowing!

St. Dickeybird said...

Hahaha, I love how people's paths veer over such minor experiences!
:)

I'm probably copping this for Monday, unless something really surprising happens.

Don't know if you celebrate Victoria Day down there, but if you are have a good one. In fact, have a good one or two whether you're celebrating or not!

Asha said...

Nice MeMe!! Trisha loves to be a doctor,already dissected Rabbit and a Piglet and loved it!;D Anatomy and Physiology is her fav subject.
You talked too much in Elemenatary school to!Haha!!
Two degrees,not bad.I almost got the second one,but didn't.
Have a great weekend Kesh,see you on Monday:))

Rajeev said...

U were a topper at math :|
I failed in maths 3 times in my 12th and wasted 2 yrs, thankfully i don't have maths now in my BCA :D

Mr. J said...

You didn't become a doc ha?? I hate docs as a thumb rule, but i'd have tried my best to fall sick if only the doc was you.

Damn those stupid roaches.

There's still time y'know. Become a doc pppppplllllllllzzz...

DEEPA said...

hey ..u are a brilliant student man ...topper ...

i never ever got maths rite ....very very bad on my part...

KMF said...

I agree with all those quotes. Lovely!

Helen said...

And if you can't do that, no amount of education can help you to lead a satisfied life. As you can see there are so many 'educated' people around but not enough sensible people around.**

Loved that quote, Keshi, I have always been very devoted to "education" but there are so many types of intelligience we stifle others when we insist on one type of learning to prove intelligience.

Michelle said...

my fav teacher was my 10th grade math teacher even tho i hated math lol..i LOVED HERR cuz she was so encouragin!! and science was NEVER my thing

KK said...

Awesomely done tag... liked the way you had written it... I agree with you on learning from experience... nothing can teach you like experience...
BTW, I have a new post in my blog... stope by whenever you can...

Charles said...

Well done, Keshi, funny as well.
I find it unfortunate though, the flip side of your lesson. That we are taught to isolate people for undesirable behavior, instead of teaching what was desired, we teach to cutoff the person. I think it would be better to let the person know how it was offensive, ask that it not happen again and forgive them. Instead of creating outcasts, we could be creating better people as friends. That occurs so early in childhood, before one has the ability to descriminate as to why, it becomes an automatic response, which is never unlearned. It may have taught you one lesson, but it likely taught everyone else something else entirely. Thus we get people like G.W.B. (the most prominent jerk I can think of), stubborn in their ways, and not even knowing why (in his case not capable of thinking his way out of it.)

Fleiger said...

You took Bio? I had enough of bio after I finished school, and so had to take it again in grad school :(

Pankaj Gupta said...

hi keshi how are you--well its nice post again(reflct ur behaviour).
Prachi looks sweet too.bye.

Pankaj Gupta said...

and yes i will def. pray for Prachi-.

MONA said...

KESHI! This is the most wonderfully well done meme that I have ever seen!!!

& yes Charles is the sweetest gentleman around & also the most honest & forthright & the righteous person I have ever met! He is so much like you!

" no amount of good work can save you when you are wrong" .. Golden words those! Do you realise that we also LEARN from our mistakes besides paying for them...just as you were learning from your's.

& What a coincidence...crawling cockroaches & my frog jumping out half dissected at my face made me give up science forever too!! LOL

Those Quotes at the end were an ingenious idea!

Łóòň Ġãĺ said...

ooo that was a very educating post about you Keshi hehe .. it was great knowing about you :D

Btw herez another one I keep reading on people's shirts:

I was born intelligent
but
Education
RUINED ME!!

:P

Peter said...

Fantastic job!!! Extremely good!

How much time do you spend on producing such good stuff?

diyadear said...

keshi,
that tag surely brought out many nice things from u.. glad to know abt ur education.. n nice song to back up the post :)

deepti said...

An enjoyable read, ummm=) Well i prefer to stay at a mile's distance from maths...Gosh how do u people manage to top...hats off to u...

krystyna said...

Hi Keshi!
Thanks for sharing this great post and beautiful photos. It is not surprise to me your high education. I knew it. You are so smart.
Love your lesson:
When you do something wrong, you must pay a price for it no matter how good you may have been in the past.
That lesson stuck in my head for good and I'm glad about it. Thank you Miss.Ingrid, you taught me to accept my faults with grace.

Anonymous said...

your comments on class are so tasteless. my family could afford my education, from what i can see yours didn't even give you a healthy sense of self. i don't know what bubble you are lost in but i have grown up travelling the world and having fun. my father is too much an honest man and hence his situation now. i decided to have the brilliant idea of following my dreams and hence mine. not my intention to insult anyone but you keep on coming up with absurd ideas.

Dawn....सेहर said...

OMG even I wanted to b a dr...in fact I gave the entrance guess what...even though I had good marks preference was given to schedule castes n I was in waiting list...tht was it for me :)
great to know everything abt u on education :)
Cheers n hugggggggzzzzz

Within Without said...

So roaches did you in, huh? Seems you dusted yourself off and did quite well with two -- count 'em, two -- degrees.

Super informative, Kesh. Thanks. And certainly agree about education in school vs. experience...

Lisa Francisco aka AVIANA said...

Hey Chica!

Thanks for stopping by! yea me and roaches don't go well together.

don't feel bad about med school. i went to college and took and flunk calculus literally 3 times..simply because i was following one of my parents dreams of becoming a doctor...the professor took pity on me the last time i took calculus and let me pass with a C....

The Phoenix said...

That must be the 20th story I've heard about dissecting something making someone decide to not pursue medicine!

Vest said...

Keshi. unless we go through the organised compulsory curriculum of a school and college we can't get the legal qualification to enter a profession. In order to be a dentist we must first know what a logarithm is, and in order to be a horse doctor you have to learn Latin. The idea is that any person who has tackled a Latin irregular verb has no trouble with the inside of a horse.

Keshi,

Hi
I dont know why...but who ever you ask ( kids) those days and even nowadays everyone wanted to be a doctor...why..no one tells me that he/she wanted to be the normal person who runs a corner shop...or person who works for council...list goes on....
guess what...i tooo wanted to be a doctor.....
Take care

I wanted to be a proctologist but heard it's an occupation propulated by arseholes. *Boom-tish*

Got to know more about you.It was fun and interesting to read your answers.

All that beauty and smart to boot!

My favorite teacher was my fourth grade teacher - I had a real crush. The funny thing is that we all met up last year and had a nice visit.

Blessed said...

Hi Miss Kesh! I am alive and well. I was on vacation at the beach.
I am home now. Guess you could say I am physically here but my heart is there.
I love going to the beach.
Had so much fun.
Miss my biker friends more than I can say.

Very interesting post!
You wanted to be a doctor once??
Wow. Lot of schooling for that. I
wanted to be a journalist/broadcaster and then a social worker. I am none of these things. I'm just a administrative assistant for 4 retinal surgeons.
Really a peon job HA HA! But it pays the bills!

Good to be able to visit your blog!
Blessings my dear!

**It may have taught you one lesson, but it likely taught everyone else something else entirely.

WTF is this abt?


**my family could afford my education, from what i can see yours didn't even give you a healthy sense of self.

tnxx for that info abt my family that u DONT even know. But from ur cowardly comments, I now DO know UR family. They are the ones who cudnt give U a sense of self. Cos u r hiding ur real self even in blogs.



**i don't know what bubble you are lost in but i have grown up travelling the world and having fun.

I can reallt see that u DO know how to have fun. DUHHHHH!



**my father is too much an honest man and hence his situation now.

?? U seem to be hallucinating. I dun have a frikkin idea wut ur talking abt here. R u in the wrong blog?



**i decided to have the brilliant idea of following my dreams and hence mine.

Good luck to u!


**not my intention to insult anyone but you keep on coming up with absurd ideas.

Such as? Even if I did, who asked u to follow my ideas?

I seriously think ur in the wrong blog. Do find ur way to the right blog next time.

thats where the catch is...i learn more by hearing than reading....infact i dont read books i listen to them...i listen to the author...they have a image and a voice...blogs are the same too...if your voice sounds nice only then will start commenting...school text books dont have voices...even sci-fi are the same...i admit i am not being to imaginative there....but i will rather watch a sci-fi movie where there is some kinda form.....

Thats so true Vishesh!
