Went back to TJC this morning to see my ex-TA students. It was such a joy to see so many of them! And their surprised, stunned and shocked faces as they walked from their PE lesson to the canteen, which quickly broke into broad and happy smiles. =) I would never give that up for anything. And it was then that I realised how very much I miss them. They kept asking me if I was going to go back to teach them History or General Paper (GP), and every time one of them asked that, I felt like answering: “Yes, I’m coming back. I’ll see you in class next year ok?” But other plans are in the works and I know it’s time for me to move on. But I really hope they will keep in touch, for as I have touched their lives, so they have touched mine in many ways too.

My TA students, you’re a special bunch! =)

  6. Hey peeps, your comments really move me! And reading them brings back so many wonderful memories of the lessons we had together at the good ol’ TA Block, with me trying to keep you all quiet at the start of the lesson while fumbling to set up the silly projector at the same time, and also trying to take out one of the toys I would bring to class while complaining about the heat of the room too…haha…those were fun days, yeah? =P

    Do keep in touch and be good to your teachers ok? =)

  7. hey mr. see(: its great to see you back! really sad that you wont be coming back to teach in tj though): would have really looked forward to seeing you in college more often. haha but you really do look the same as you did 2 years ago!!
    if there was one teacher who could have made me like history, it is definitely you!(: really miss your funky history lessons. Come back to visit more often!(:

  8. Hello Mr See ! Was really, really glad t catch you at TJ on Tuesday! Really brought back many awesome memories; I remember you were one very special teacher who had (and still have) a unique way of inspiring students. And by the second lesson in the first week of school you could already match everyone’s names to his/her face! For a moment we thought maybe you’d be able t teach us History next year; but =\ Oh well, all the best in your endeavours and hope you come back t visit again soon!
