First Teacher's Day

Today was my first Teacher's Day as a teacher. To be truthful, I think I received a lot more gifts than expected.

A lot of them were useful as lunch because I'm staying back to get some marking done. lol

The most psychic gift was from my form class chairperson and her friend: a pair of earphones. Most surprising because my earphones just died yesterday and I was intending to buy a replacement today. Must remember to check out the price of the earphones later and ask them not to get such an expensive gift next time.

The most "awwwww" gift was from a kid in my 1NT class. I was teaching them at the spice garden yesterday and let them go off for recess a bit early. He told me to wait, rushed to the bookshop (which was in plain sight), got a small flower and gave it to me. So cute!

The most touching gifts were from two classes I'm not currently teaching. One was from last semester, and one was a class I taught last year during my practicum! To think I only saw them for 5 weeks last year and they still bothered to give me something.

These kids are really full of surprises. It almost makes all the daily blood vomiting worthwhile. lol
