This thread should be on the fire place it's so hot.
My students used to crack me as we had so many mixed personalities last year in class. a really good bunch of students overall and a great experience i had teaching them. i'll miss them all and wish them the best in their future.
What is the point in loving your children when you aren't excepted into their society (although i was). I've come across students that can work out their teachers before they have taught their first lesson of their new teaching careers. students are much brighter than we think. i'm a lucky teacher and often have students tell me that they love me and show so much attention in class. I guess thats my point for moving on to pastures green been easily excepted into asian schools both by the parents and students isn't an easy task but i feel i've achieved that. the truth is i have known some of my students for almost four years although i have now completed my teaching as a shcool teacher in thailand i do see myself as returning for some reason.
I have seen teachers come and go and students too but i remember all of my students and some i'll never forget. How rewarding it is to teach in thailand and the surrounding countries when excepted as ateacher and not a down and out (uh um)
happy new year all.

One of my students, a drop dead gorgeous girl, began her letter
Thank you for servicing me.....
Took a bit of explaining.
I got a xmas card that said 'I really appreciate your gentle'
Just your gentle, that's all.
Once I had Prathom 3 kids writing sentences about where their parents worked. One little girl wrote "My mother wanks at home".
Good, so your mum and I have something in common then.....

It's not true by the way. Also, I never taught them that expression.
I'm everywhere you've never been and better than I've ever been
Very funny! Beautiful thread!
