My students are graduating...

Posted by Dawn at Friday, October 14, 2011
This year has been an exceptionally good year for me in terms of bonding with my students. Whenever students ask me why I become a teacher, one of the reasons I usually give is.."because I enjoy talking to youths and bonding with them..." This year, I taught 2 Sec 4 classes combined which comprised of only 18 students. Despite only teaching them for less than a year, the bond that we established is quite amazing. My 18 students even came up with a Math class T-shirt which says, "Dawn's Army" in front. I felt as if we have been through so much together. Maybe because of the late nights I spent with them giving them night classes, having lessons even in Ikea, my house as well as overnight camp during the March Holidays...
Truthfully, I will miss them very much. Another class that I took for only one year was this CPA (Computer Applications)class which I took last year when they were Sec 3s. Most of them complained to me that I should have taught them in Sec 4 as well but I had to explain to them that this is the school's arrangement and there is a quota of graduating classes a teacher can take. Nevertheless, despite the short time I spent with this class, we still keep in touch constantly through facebook and I just feel I want to always be there for them and with them.
To all my Sec 4 students, hope your Secondary School life has been memorable and fruitful. Here's wishing you all the best in your future endeavours and I will constantly pray for your well-being as you embark in your next phase in your life. Love you..
