We have a Math teacher in school, called Murad, who doesn't only teach Math.

He teaches everything. He knows everything. He knows how to do everything.

Not that he is God, but he is a superhero.

In class he tells us how he got full marks in Math every year.

He tells us how he finished his Math Tawjihi exam in two hours and got 197 out of 200, while the rest of the class complained to the local newspaper about how they couldn't complete the three hour exam full of tremendously hard questions.

Sometimes in class, when we're wingeing about the Chemistry quiz we took in the previous lesson, he tells us how simple Chemistry is, and starts telling us his stories about how he was perfect in Chemistry and how it needs no attention.

Then, once when half the class failed in a Physics quiz, he wanted to prove how stupid we were in failing such a ridiculous quiz, so he solved the whole quiz on the board.

He then told us how he was perfect in Physics, that he was prepared to give us lessons instead of Math, and how he gives private Physics tuition to pupils outside the school. Bare in mind, he gives Math tuition for 50JDs an hour, as he claims.

He complains about how he was the one in his family to go to college and get a job. How he receives an income of two grand a month, and how this isn't enough for him and he deserves more. And his stories of spending 400JDs when he goes shopping in Aqaba.

Me and my friend where chatting with him on Thursday in a free lesson. He told us how he stood up to his Islamic Studies teacher, at which he had achieved 99% in tenth grade, and went to the principle of the school, his father, and complained about the teacher, who was fired immediately.

After a few minutes, he saw a boy with a guitar, so he called him over. We thought he was going to mess around with it, but we were in for a surprise. He actually knew how to play a guitar, and played for us a whole song for Fayrouz.

And my fellow blogger friend has dreams at night of him being part of the secret service.

It could be true. The secret service could do with some.. er.. superheroes. ;)


  1. ya hehe murado has a real problem, i dnt know how he got to be a math teacher if he studied engineering or acitechture as well and he knows the carbon structure of diamond. Instead of trying to make himself look smart by knowing everything, he's actually making himself look dumb by knowing everything and still being a math teacher

  2. am with Khalid , he said what i really wanted to write.. but he might be a person who wants to be a superman and beloved by everyone , so the school is the perfect place.. anyway he is a gifted one
