Dear John ......and Jack

 Key to the survival of a freelance ESL teacher like me is having a reliable agent in Korea. i'm lucky to have one. More so, I'm lucky to have been given the chance to meet wonderful students who have been part of my development as a person. John and Jack are of them.....sadly, John has to go to High School and for that matter stay in the dormitory where no electronic gadgets are allowed. And so is the end of more than 1 year of learning and enjoying each others company.......

.....whenever a student say goodbye, a part of a teacher's heart dies with it. But I value good memories more than anything. The times when you laugh your heart out loud are the only things you can claim your own.

So I always remind myself. Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened. I will miss you guys and I wish you well in life......

  2. ngayon ko lang na-realize na students never forget teachers. yung name probably, pero yung memory of who they are what they somehow look like and what they did eh nagstistick sa isip.
