The Rewards of the Profession

As a teacher, students would sometimes say thank you to you for your hard work.
Occasionally, they might even give you a gift!
As a trainee, I never expected gifts during my practicum period!
Neither did I expect to receive one only after 2 months in the school!

Yesterday, two students caught me by surprise...
They came into the staffroom & quietly approached my table when I was seriously at work marking some papers...
"Sir..."
I looked up with a confused look, after red-penning grammatical errors for the past hour & not expecting any guests...
Two familiar faces looked back nervously... they were silent.
"Yes?" I asked.
One girl nudged the other & whispered something in Mandarin.
"We have something for you, sir." the one being nudged said.
She then proceeded to take out 2 containers!
I was speechless & my confused look became a mixture of confused joy!
"For you, sir, & Cikgu Nesa. Share."
I smiled.
They quickly turned & left.
"Thank you! Very nice of you!"

In the containers, I found:

melted white chocolate with cornflakes

Wen & ShinYi baked cookies!
How did they know?
I LOVE COOKIES!!!

chocolate cookies with choc chips

They even made letters to spell our names!
How lovely!!
Apparently they think Nesa is my wife...
Nesa Yong...
hahaha~~

THANKS, GIRLS!!!
YOUR NAMES ARE FOREVER ETCHED IN MY GOOD BOOKS!!
=)
