“My Teacher, My Hero”, my favorite theme for an Essay Writing Contest.
LOCALLY GROWN FLOWERS, CANDIES AND CHOCOLATES FROM SARI-SARI STORES, HAND-MADE CARDS AND TIGHT HUGS FROM PUPILS, my commonly stuffs and gesture received.
These are the routinely scenarios every during World Teachers’ Day Celebration on my sixteen (16) years serving in schools where I was assigned then. However, after leaving classroom and ventured in another career path for past eleven (11) years now, I started missing all these and them.
Just until when today’s World Teachers’ Day Celebration, a special ring in my cellular phone alarmed me to read a considered SIMPLE but VERY SPECIAL MESSAGE to ponder that exactly goes this way …..
Happy teachers’ day to my Science teacher in Grade 5. Thank you for all the lessons ma’am. – Diane Galleto Galido
Swiftly, I feel so proud and contented. No Flowers. No Candies and Chocolates. No Cards. No Hugs. Yet these simple words bring me up and feel I’m in Cloud Nine. Imagine, these Science and other Grade 5 lessons were taught twelve (12) years back and seems still very fresh from Ms Diane’s message. The THANK YOU is so simply sweet and sincere.
Ms Dianne is now a professional lady, a successful one I can consider. I know she is not the only one among my pupils who feel the same, but she stood top as an authentic manifestation of my being “SIMPLE ME”! A TEACHER, A HERO!
HAPPY WORLD TEACHERS’ DAY!
