Boys are usually not the ‘writing cards’ kind, especially when they are in p6. So, to receive one from my p6 boy, it really tugs at my heartstrings. What catches my attention is not his appreciation of how great my teaching methods are(which are important of course), but how I made time to listen to him, and how he is willing to open up to me and share with me more on his school and family matters. I’m thankful I’m in a position to advise him. Teaching p6 is always a bittersweet memory for me. Sweet that lives are touched, bitter as I could no longer see them. Pray they will remember not only the lessons taught, but also the life skills I try to impart each time.
