Teaching is a noble profession.If one adopts it then one must be faithful to it, develop professionalism and continuity in learning and innovation.Once my teacher at the Masters level left for her own higher studies and I as a student felt as such.
Sharing with all these expressions and the firm belief that good teachers must be appreciated encouraged rewarded and retained.
My expressions at that time:
Teacher, I saw you, a paragon of excellencedignity and grace; above allinspiration and confidence . . . abounding;Teacher I knew then, the load of books would be light,the road to knowledge would be bright,ignorant darkness lit up . . . astounding;Teacher, you gave me strength courage and hope,as fear melted with time, lost vigour came . . . rebounding;But Teacher, why did you turn away for another world,smiling far into the heavens,leaving me with dark heavy clouds . . . surrounding;OH teacher, now where shall I find,Your confident smile, Your inspiring approach,Your words of hope, that made my task so easy;My steps are heavy with despair . . . mounting;Dear Teacher, listen, if you can . . . I shall try to reach my goal;Without you . . . the path is hard to traverse and cold,Your thoughts are All the Strength, I hold;If I succeed, I will know, the pain will go,The sun will shine, bright and fair, Teacher Dear, you were always there.
