When I was a schoolgirl, I clearly remember how an inspirational teacher could bring a lesson to life. I love the opportunity to interact with young people and listen to their ideas and thoughts. They educate me every day. I enjoy seeing the world through their eyes. It is revealing how easily they are able to explain their logic.
It is so rewarding to witness their growth throughout the year. At the end of the final term I always feel that they are ready to move on and that they have outgrown me. Hopefully they approach the new year with confidence, humility and the willingness to learn. I hope that they will always remember me, as I will always remember them and the joy they brought into my life.
