I remember my first grade (standard one) teacher – Mrs. Thiga.
she taught me how to be selfish the hard way. I was the really really generous kid who
shared out ALL my snacks and was left hungry during break.
My teacher devised an excellent way to teach me self-love. Every morning when I walked into class, she would take my snack box from me and hang on to it, until everyone else had had their snacks, finished and were settled.
She would then hand over my snack box with a stern warning to the class not to ask me for anything and an even stricter warning NOT to share out anything!

My fifth grade teacher – Mrs. Akinyi, taught me tough love! We would recite our mathematical table every morning from 1x1=1 to 12x12=144.
Any missed tabled equaled two strokes. We got beat!  But, she always made it up with the coolest class parties EVER!! ;) I learnt to love and hate her at the same time.

The Head_Teacher Mr. Agak a.k.a A.G. he was the most eloquent, swerve, dignified, disciplined, authoritative man I have ever met, after my father ofcos!
My high school teachers and college professors, would fill posts on this blog.
I have crazy R.E.S.P.E.C.T for the teaching fraternity. It takes dedication and passion to be able to do that every day – I believe teaching is a calling for the chosen few.
I dedicate this post to all teachers out there. I don’t know how ya’l do it, but I honor each and every one of you. Without you and those that came before you, we wouldn’t be here.

               teaching is the ONLY profession that teaches all other professions..
