In academic line, it is very heartwarming to know that all the hard work and commitments to your work are appreciated. It's towards the end of the semester, and some of the final year students will be sending off for industrial training for three months before their graduation in November.
Within these few days, I had received many thank-you cards and presents. All not to bribe, but to express their sincere thanks towards me. I felt appreciated.
Not that I love to receive cards, good words or gifts, but these simple gesture of appreciation had boosted up my passion towards my profession. Perhaps it's the way i deliver my lecture, or perhaps it's my yankee-slang Englsih, they found my lectures easy to be understood, light to be digested.
Some of them decided to give little gifts. Gifts that will only reminds me to work harder and to do better.
While some, decided to give awards. Hahahahah...I pray to God for strength, that I will be able to do better, so that I will be able to give my students the best I could.
Oh well, it's all because I had an apple a day. An apple a day, keep you smile always. hehehe
Frankly, the proudest moment come only when they're on the stage receiving their graduation scroll. And the greatest gift of all, is to see them excel in their future and remembers this 'old man' as their friend.
