Is that not sir Augustine?Yes,he's the one.Awww,how I wish I had seen
him earlier.Come to think of it,ITS been 20yrs already.How amazed i
guess he would be to know that he once taught me.Yeah,I'm sure he
would....Just a few of the many reflections that came to mind when I saw
my Class 1 teacher while in taxi a few days ago.He's simply an awesome teacher.
Ever since I left his class I've been taught by several others yet I've
forgotten about most of them but not him.And why so?I asked myself,then
it dawned on me when you knew nothing but just the national anthem song
and ABCD...'A ne ne ba'.... he believed in you.When you feigned
sickness during your maths class,he knew all about it yet he said,you're
a bright kid,work harder.I was young then but His words had a

inspiration.Let's leave a legacy of gratitude for posterity.
Teachers may be tough on you sometimes but in the end its for our
betterment.I am who I've become because a teacher was behind my
schooling.I believe its same for you too...Reflections like these indeed
impresses on me to say;If you can read this,Go find your teacher and
say THANK YOU!
