It's supposed to be a fine day today as it's my birthday. I just turned 33 this year and I've accepted the fact that all of us are not going to be younger as we are growing older every year. My students sang "Happy Birthday" song for me in the beginning of the lesson. My colleagues also wished and sang "Happy Birthday" song too. I was so overwhelmed with the wishes.
BUT..................it didn't last so long when my students spoiled the day! They were having their listening test when I caught most of them cheating by sharing the answers. I warned them before I gave the test paper and I also restated the exam rules but those reminders fell into deaf ears. At some point when I totally lost my patience, I shouted on top of my lung "Don't share the answers because you're not supposed to help your friends that way!". Some of them said "Sorry" but the rest just either being so stubborn or just didn't get the message at all!
Tomorrow I'm not sure what to tell them because I don't think I want to check their test papers. I know they didn't really attempt to answer or guess those answers on their own. May be I should just cool down first and think about this matter. Hmmmm......
