He was one of the 'little' students in my class. Basically because of his 'height deficiency' which makes him a little bit deviant from his classmates. But I am not prejudiced of his stature! To tell you honestly, I am really happy when I see him being with his mates---whether they are eating in the canteen or playing in the school campus---without those uneasy feelings of teaching a student who stands like a grade schooler.
His name is Dave. He laughs like a baby. He possesses a charming look coupled with his very friendly smile. He is more attractive than his older brother. He is active in class discussions. And he loves Science just like how he loves his teacher.
Moreover, he is the most thoughtful student in my class because he did something that boosts my passion and love for teaching. And this shock me the most! I know that the World Teachers' Day is over and even forgotten within the confines of the school campus where I am currently teaching. Nonetheless, it did not affect his desire to show how he admires me as his Science teacher.
This is his Facebook post saying that I am "THE BEST SCIENCE TEACHER." I am even wondering what inspired him to post something as public as that on his wall, and I am also wondering where did he take my publication photo.
This is now my time to thank him. For as long as I live, I will be glad to have a student who inspires me even when my days are hazy.
