The interaction inside the classroom. The noise of a dragging chair. The question they ask you for directions after you have just given them. The never ending follow up of projects even if they are due a month ago. The sleeping giants during discussion. The open forum. The unsolicited advice and the unwelcome remarks. The dramas, the laughter. These are just a normal scenario in my children’s classroom. My MIGHTY students. Despite of all these, still I can say that their classroom is a brilliant place to be.
My life was a bit of a roller coaster ride. But it’s always a good feeling to look back and reflect. This will probably be followed by some reminiscing, some laughter, some nostalgia.
Jonri and Justin – You made my first day of class memorable. Your expression as I was entering the room still in my head. Kayong dalawa ang una kong naalalang pangalan.
Galias – my gwapong ‘’inaanak’’ who always doodles during class.
Jonri – A tall guy who is NEVER ashamed of bringing his bible with him. That rocks you know.
Brianne – You are special more than you know.
Eric – It’s not just your ears that listens but your heart as well.
Maxley – The boy next door . The best drummer I’ve ever seen in JCA so far. I will always remember your one liner answer. I appreciate you a lot when the principal was observing your class. When I called you to recite you were left with no option but to answer me in more than 5 sentences. That was precious.
Jemuelle – my ever reliable Class President . Your research about HITLER is still with me. Palagi ko naaalala ang walang sawa mong pang gagaya sakin. You have been such a big help to me. At kahit mas bagay sayo ang maging SPOKE person sa kadaldalan mo, still I cannot imagine Mighty with out you.
JM - The cutest of all .First meeting, you were sitting at the left side, first row beside Thea. And all I see is your cute face everyday. Your shoes bigger than your size, your adlibs and your side comments. I will remember those.
Paulo - A man of substance. You were sensitive about my feelings. Thank you for paying attention to me.
BIMBO!!!! Your gift of gab is simply amazing. Alam mo na mahal kita ng sobra kaya naman ang patience ko sayo lagpas skyline!
Jed- Always have a good answer for every question. Someone who thinks deep, and sleeps deep too! Harhar!
Alexis – Aabangan ko ang araw na ikaw ay maging isang MAGALING na Engineer!!!
Sirou – You will always be remembered.
Gilliane – Beauty and brain personified.
Eliz – My faithful devotion leader. Ikaw lang ang may hawak ng tronong yan!
Katrina – Her face I adore.
Mary Anne – Giggly girl who trips over everything.
David sisters – These two are too good to compete with. First time of class they were just staring at me… Natakot ako promise hahaha!
Louiness – Pambansang Krungkrung ng JCA! Mahal kita*
Vina – Beautiful inside and out.
Joy – My ‘’adopted child’’
Shaznaye – Talinong talino ako sayo!
Thea – Rich in simple treasure.
Keziah – I hope to see ‘’my dream’’ for you in the near future I <3 you.
Janae - Very opinionated. That makes you street smart you know .
Mika – You have a tough exterior but all I see is your soft side. It always breaks my heart every time you will come to me in tears.
Precious - Easiest ‘’child’’ to rear.
Rei - I simply love your heartbeat.
Hannah – You are a selfless individual. I miss our intellectual conversation.
Vanessa – I will always remember the day when I asked you question that made you cry. Right then and there I knew you are precious.
Pazia – Akala ko si Angel Locsin ang nasa harap ko.
The reason why I love to stay at the back is because I enjoy looking at you. Listening to your conversation puts a smile on my face. I love those giggles and laughter. Every moment shared with you is a collection of everyday’s blessings. The magical motivation that you gave me is indescribable. The laughter and the chismaks we shared it’s all precious. The “Aha” moments that lead — almost effortlessly — to interesting topics and debates. Thank you for making me feel special. I will never forget you.
Believe me, it was the hardest to say goodbye to so far. But we are just running in circle. We will still see each other again.
I am forever grateful for the time I’ve spent with you.
I will remain positive even if everything else around you is negative.
I will be cheering for you in silence. And it will be a great joy seeing you finishing your High School.
Till we meet again,
