Apples for Teacher's Day

The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book.
In teaching you cannot see the fruit of a day’s work. It is invisible and remains so, maybe for twenty years.

Henry Adams ever said that A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops. I couldn’t more agree with this. I think the dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called “truth”. They know you feel uncomfortable sometimes, but they do have it 5 times harder to see you lost in hope. To stimulate life, leaving it then free to develop, to unfold,herein lies are the first task of the teacher.

Good teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of right answers. They stimulate your brain, giving it food and not you expected, you totally in to the thinking of them.
Everyone has their favorite teacher and their -not so want to remember but unfortunately – still remember teacher..the last one is the teacher you avoid, scare of, and maybe you make fun with them...

Here’s i make a short a-b-c , dedicated to you as a teacher and friend..
A is for the ABUNDANCE of questions and, yes we (may try to) answer
B is for both inward and outward BEAUTY
C is for CREATIVE learning you apply in classroom
D is for DOING it over and over ’til it’s right (haha, sometimes i love hate to do it!)
E is for the EFFORT you pour into preparing lesson each night
F is for watching how FAR we can go,.. (that sometimes you already my second ‘best‘ ‘cerewet’  mom)
G is for seeing us blossom and GROWING in community
H is for cheering us to reach that star so HIGH (the second best cheerleader ever-after my mom)
I is for the live IMAGINATION you bring into our minds
J is for JOY in touching a child’s life in a meaningful way
K is for KINDNESS you bring children each day (i don’t know giving candy is part of the kindness..??)
L is for the LOVE of teaching that we can obvious see
M is for the “ME” you’re helping me to be
N is for NEVER being to busy to pray for us (i bet you have a long pray list, hehe)
O is for sensing and OVERCOMING our desire to stray (remember, we’re just a kiddos ;D)
P is for POSITIVES PASSION in you bring to each
Q is for the QUINTESSENTIAL way to teach (i already imagine the classic blackboard & chalk in front of the class )
R is for your goodwill REASON to stay answer even for our RIDICULOUS question
S is for the SILENT that already happen, every time you read the history book and made a fabulous gesture.
T is for TOUCHING our heart so deep, and we (also) can do it to others too
U is for UNDERSTANDING our fear of all that is so new and strange (this for my biology teacher that made my lab’ time more fun not horror, i mean not so scary facing the death body of various animal)
V is for the VITALITY you show each day (i bet you consume redbull/kratingdeng multivitamin each day)
W is for your WILLINGNESS to put responsible up on us (yes, responsible for giving a home Work-hard work-haha)
X is for the X-RAY look you give us, if we hiding some ‘sin’..;D (i think it’s in your blood, hey you teacher..)
Y is for the YARDSTICK you never put to ‘measure’ us in front of others
Z is for the big “yahoo” sent from your very own “zoo”! (yes, we are living in your zoo, and yes..we miss ours)

Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions..
A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others
I would like to thank them from the bottom of my heart, but for them – my Teacher including all the people that plant their seeds in my life – assuredly i say my heart has no bottom… 

A Good teacher Explains ... A Superior teacher Demonstrates ... A GREAT teacher Inspires.
