...Happy Teacher's Day 2010!...

Happy Teachers' Day to all teachers, wherever you may be on Teacher's Day!
Today, 16th of May is Teachers' Day back in Malaysia.

To all our beloved lecturers in Penang, we wish you Happy Teachers' Day and thanks for helping us to learn from yesterday and live for today. You have taught us all of these!!
Ohh.. don't you know how much that your children (58 of us) really really miss you?. Behold:

You are the one who inspires us for better human being,
purpose designed for life that we seem all too unclear.

You are like a candle, it consumes itself to light the way for others

When it comes to teaching,
no one can compete with you.

You are the one who shaped and
are responsible in making us capable citizens of this world.

Madam Lee, Mr Teoh, Mr. Retnakumar, Mr. Goh, Madam Ong, Mr. Jamal
(don't have pitcures of them)

They inspired us to help others learn. Looking back, they made a world of a difference for us and for so many people. Guess that's pretty much why we want to be a teacher.;)

Thus, lets us pay respect to these wonderful, loving and caring lecturers through our prayers and wishes.

A very Happy Teachers Day to all of you!!!!!

Most teachers have little control over school policy or curriculum or choice of texts or special placement of students, but most have a great deal of autonomy inside the classroom. To a degree shared by only a few other occupations, such as police work, public education rests precariously on the skill and virtue of the people at the bottom of the institutional pyramid. ~Tracy Kidder~
