This morning I got a letter from Province Educational Office. It tells that each regency has to send one of its teachers from RSBI schools to participate in teacher selection for attending English Short Training in USQ Queensland Australia. The selection will be held on Thursday, May 12th, 2011, in Semarang.
To follow up this letter as soon as I called the four of principals of RSBI schools. Kabupaten Pekalongan has four RSBI schools, they are SMP 1 Wiradesa, SMA 1 kajen, SMK 1 Kedungwuni and SMA 1 Kedungwuni. I told them about it and asked their opinion about how I choose one of them. One suggested me to choose one from his school and another suggestion gave all to my policy, or up to me.
Then in a few minutes I decided to ask them to send one of their teachers to come to my room at 11. They could be English, Mathematics or Science teachers. I also called some supervisors to help me to do the selection. At 11, four teachers from four schools came. They were Mr. Suwito (English teacher of SMA 1 Kajen), Mrs Rini (English teacher of SMK 1 Kedungwuni), Mrs Usrotun ( Phisics teacher of SMA 1 Kedungwuni) and Mr Widodo ( English teacher of SMP 1 Wiradesa).
The supervisors who accompanied me to do the selection were Mr. Sutarman and Mr. Joko. After I told them about the aim and we only have to send one, the supervisors asked them to tell us in English about everything they did and thought about their professional job and their readiness to follow the selection in province level. In the end I had to choose one of them based on their presentation. I chose Mr Suwito to be a representative of Kabupaten Pekalongan. All participants and supervisors agreed with me.
Good luck Pak Wito, do your best in the selection and wish you are able to go to USQ Queensland Australia to attend the training........
