I worked in the university library during my college days(photo). Because of the working scholar opportunity, I was able to finish my college and earned my degree in one of the best schools in my country. I was raised by a single mom who inspired me to reach out my dreams. It was always the goal of my mother to have me and my brother finished a good education and earn a Degree. LIFE was TOUGH! It was a milestone which hardships made me become a better person. My mother is a blessing and I owe everything I AM from her. My life is an open book to all my pupils for twelve years. An open book with great hope that they will be inspired of what I had been and what I would become.
Talking to him brings back memories, the good memories in the classroom. He was a bubbly child, artistic, jolly, friendly and his classmates adored him. He was very studious and he always comes to class ready with assignments (afraid of angry teacher amy, hehehe). He loves to learn and a very inquistive as a child. He loves dancing, singing and giggles a lot hahaha.
We talked about him and his classmates. It was amazing that on his batch, some survived to go to college. As their teacher, it was a fulfillment knowing that my pupils gave importance to education. He is presently in College taking up IT course. He told me that Joseph, the first honor of that batch is studying in Xavier University, my beloved alma mater. Life is Great!Yeah, it reminded me that I am not young anymore! My first grade pupils were grown ups and now in college...wohoooo! LOL!
