Speaking their language


When Mohan Nanu, 48, finished secondary school, he had two choices: take up 
teaching or join the army. Luckily for all his subsequent students, his 
parents convinced him that becoming an educator would be the better choice.  

“And after all these years, I think I agree with them,” says Mohan, who has 
been teaching for 27 years. He is currently the afternoon supervisor in SMK 
Bandar Baru Ampang.  

His firm and serious demeanour is quite befitting the Mathematics teacher he 
is, and one can imagine that it would be easy for him to keep his students in 

Speaking to him, however, it quickly becomes apparent why he gets along so 
well with his students. His jokes and easy laughter belie his stern exterior.
