According to Ms. Pientha, participating in SEAQiM’s course brings many benefits for the development of her teaching skills particularly when dealing with students questions on real life mathematics. She hoped she had the chance to attend other programmes held by SEQiM.
Currently, Ms. Pientha is pursuing her postgraduate degree majoring actuary in Indonesia University. On the other hand, she stated without any doubt that being a teacher is her passion. Thus, she believed that in this era of globalization mathematics teachers should actively follow self-development programme in order to be a better teacher.
