Rare Gem Of A Teacher
On the first day of school, Sherilyn's class teacher gave this inexpensive but meaningful and utterly thoughtful gift to all the students in the class.
I suppose this personalized note with words of encouragement is the teacher's welcome gift. It's printed on a piece of thick Disney paper. I think it's printed with love from the heart, with a burning passion in teaching. If you were a teacher, would you care to print over 40 copies of such notes and spend over RM40?
This is the first time I see a teacher giving a welcome gift to her students on the first day of school and I am very impressed.
In addition, I was told by Sherilyn that her teacher would encourage her students to drink at least 1 liter of water in school. She would check the students' water tumblers each day. She also told the students to mark their lunch boxes and water tumblers with names. Such a caring teacher is indeed a rare gem, what more one from a military style stringent Chinese school. Bless the teacher's heart indeed!
