In any venture in life there has to be something to fuel one’s persistence and dedication in following the goals that are to be realized. The morning assembly speech by one of my students did exactly that.
Over the years as a teacher I have heard numerous speeches on various topics but never have I been more inspired to continue on my journey as a teacher. The topic of the speech as posted earlier was, ‘the best source we have to make our tomorrow bright, are our teachers’.
I would like to thank this boy for his kind words. That particular morning was an enlightening moment for me as a teacher. In a time when the quality of education is questioned and criticism burdens heavy on every teacher’s shoulder, the words of the boy was like the fresh spring showers in a season of drought.
In the hard work of his principal the boy came to appreciate and believe in the essence and reward of working hard.
In the sacrifice of his warden the boy realized the joy of dedication to one’s duty.
In the words of some of his teachers he found wisdom and happiness.
I thank him for acknowledging the happiness he feels.
