ABC wednesday : Letter T for teachers.

Mum and Dad were my first teachers. Mum used to spend every afternoon teaching my siblings and I Mandarin. Somehow, it was wasted on Charles and me. You can't believe my Dad. During the holidays, he made us write an essay everyday. I enjoyed it when we all sat around him as he edited our work. It was a good bonding time.

1999, the first reunion, our teachers Mr. Johnson from UK, Mrs. Rao from Australia, and Miss mamora.

Sam was born 7 years after Andrew died. He is my pride and joy. God made me whole again.

Sam started reading very early, and here he is at two years old reading to my American teacher. She was so impressed that she made a recording of him reading to take back to America.

What an honor to say that your parents were your first teachers.
You seem to have lived an interesting life and I'm glad your son helped restore you again.

There are many teachers I remember from my school days and now I hope that my students will remember me with respect.

Teachers are important as their attitude towards students can make them either happy or very unhappy. I always try to be kind to children and not humiliate them as some teachers in the distant past used to do. Better to encourage them.
