That's all I could utter as I looked at my duties for the 2009 school year.
Most of the duties I had not anticipated at all.
Hmm.. class teacher of one of the most notorious groups of students in school, in charge of a new self-defence/sports I have never learned, teaching exam classes, managing over 200 students in my Sports House for the school Sports Day are among the new duties assigned to me.

As I'm writing this, I'm thinking, "How am I to bring 2 groups of teenagers who are of different races and religions to work together for the common good?"

And I'm also thinking,"How am I going to make students to sympathise with the Palestinians and realise the need to help the Palestinians in any way they can? Most teens today think only about having fun."

Have to get my brain cells working hard after 2 months of rest, hehehe.
I'm praying that I'd be healthy and sick-free in 2009 so that I can focus on my work in school, insyaAllah. Couldn't do as much as I had wanted to last year as I was down with several health problems.

May Allah swt give me the strength, wisdom and willpower to perform my duties well at school and to be able to do well in other areas of my life in 2009, ameen.
