My Daughter's Teacher

My daughter, Chloe, was invited by her former teacher to sing during her birthday celebration earlier this month. Chloe sang Lea Salonga's version of On My Own from the play, Les Misérables.

Teacher Marissa was Chloe's Kindergarten 2 teacher. She's also the owner and directress of Lifetime Study Center, where my daughter had attended her preschool years. If I were to describe Teacher Mari, well... she's tough and quite strict but she's also an excellent teacher and is well-loved by her students. She's described by many as perfectionist, especially when it comes to diction and penmanship, which is just fine for us parents since all of her graduates had turned out to be very good speakers and readers in grade school (most of them even turned out as medalists). ;-)

Teacher Marissa (or Khessa to some) celebrated her day with her family, a few friends and her school staff. My daughter said she couldn't be more happier and excited to see Teacher Marissa again since she really missed her a lot. She even asked me to buy a bouquet of flowers as a birthday gift for her former teacher.

I will always be grateful to Teacher Marissa for the excellent education she had instilled not only to my daughter but to all of her students. She had helped my child attain the best nursery and kindergarten education and had also helped in honing Chloe's skills and develop her talents, especially at singing, sketching and her love for reading. In short, thank you, Teacher Mari, for bringing out the best in her ;-)

A truly special teacher is very wise, and sees tomorrow in every child's eyes. ~Author Unknown

wow that is quite the honor. I think it is great that children and teachers can have that kind of bond that will last. I think if more kids did that then success rates would be much higher.
