teachers’ day

Teachers….. You will never be forgotten….

Happy teachers' day

Early this year, when I came back to my hometown, I purposely visited my Kindergarten School and my Primary School in my hometown. Not much changing on the building and the class rooms. But I only met two Primary School teachers. One of them is my favorite teacher. She didn’t recall me at the first but then she started to remember me hahahah How? I am not that kind of quite student………. Active? yeah hahaha…

Surprisingly, when I visited my kindergarten school, expected all my teachers will not be there anymore because it was more than 30 years ago. They supposed retired already. And one of the teacher told me that there is still one teacher who is still teaching since my years time in this kindergarten until now. But she was off that day and out of town for training, so that I have no chance to meet her.

I clearly remember all my teachers’ name because they are important for me. They are good teachers. I really glad that I was before being taught by them in school.

Same applies to my kids. They are still in their kindergarten years now. It was not easy that they had to started their school years earlier than mine last time. Though it is for fun but I believe it is not easy for them especially during the pre-nursery and nursery years. They even had to took the school bus. But I am glad that so far so good. Why? I believe that their teachers have a very important role to make my kids love to go to school.

Sometime they will ask “Why it is not Monday yet” 😀

Teachers have very important role for our kids. Including our Chinese tuition teachers, Sunday School teachers, Music teachers, Swimming Coach, etc.

What I learn as a parent then?

  • Trust teachers to ‘educate’ our kids.
  • Support teachers in any tasks that they give to our kids
  • Build a good relationship with teachers

Until now, we  even still keep in touch with my sons’ pre-nursery teacher. She is a very good teachers and both my kids were under her care. But we really feel grateful that our kids are under very good teachers in their school years so far.

We Just came back from long holiday and it was a long flight. My plan was to let them go back to school a day after they came back home. And it was just nice on the Teacher’s Day celebration at school.

But that is not what they want. They want to go to school once they come back. Miss their friends? Of course! But they also miss their teachers.

Yes… they love to go to school…. and one more thing…….. they love and enjoy doing their homework. So far… there is no complaint from them about their homework. Some time they even ask more and I have bought some activity books for them (they choose those books them selves).

Teachers have very important roles to make our kids love their school. And I am so happy that my kids have their best teachers so far.

Happy Teacher’s Day to all teachers all over the world 🙂

On The Teachers’ Day

It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge — (Albert Einstein)

Three days ago, JJ and TT celebrated The Teachers’ Day in their school. I went to the school and saw what happened there. Some students will give gifts to their teachers as a token of appreciation to their teachers because they are very helpful and always encourage them.

Two weeks before kids celebrate teachers’ day at their school, we have already talked about giving teachers’ day gifts to their teachers. Kids are very excited to give their teachers gift. I asked them to make a list of their teachers’ name. And yes.. they did it.. they list all teachers in their school, all teachers that they know in their sunday school and all teachers in their tuition classes. Well.. I told them that they have to choose some of them.

Finally, we decided to buy these gifts as teachers’ day gifts and gave them to their teachers them selves.

They love their teachers. They have one same favorite teacher, let’s say her name is Ms. A. She taught JJ when he was in the pre-nursery class and I did request to the principal to let TT under her class also when TT in pre-nursery class. And yes, TT is in her class this year 🙂 They love her very much, she is a very passionate teacher, very patient and also always encourage my sons in everything they do. I believe other parents also share the  same perpective as mine. I talked to some parents whose their children were in the same class with JJ and they were agree with me. Found out that it was not only me who request Ms. A for their kids. Some other parents, especially whose kids were taught by Ms. A, requested Ms. A to teach their other kids.

Kids also made their own card for their school teachers. They enjoyed it and were very happy when they gave those cards  to their teachers.

In the Chinese Language tuition class, JJ and TT also get two very good teachers. Too bad that JJ’s teacher who had been teaching JJ since JJ was pre-nursery had to go back to China recently. JJ loves her so much, but I am glad that his new teacher is also a very nice teacher. As for TT’s teacher, she is very patient and TT also likes her so much. We are not Chinese speaker, but we are very happy that JJ and TT get these two good teachers in their Chinese tuition class. My kids’ chinese improve a lot.

This all remind me to my secondary school’s form teacher. He is an old man, but he is a very cheerful man. He always be nice to his students. He has retired already. Once, my mom said that he came to my mom’s shop and asked about me.

Don’t forget that we also kind of teachers for our kids. Set a good example and give the best to our kids 🙂

Happy Teachers’ Day for all teachers all over the world.

A teacher’s purpose is not to create students in his own image, but to develop students who can create their own image.
