My favourite teacher
HAVE you ever had a teacher that inspires you?
My favourite and by far the best teacher I have ever had is ... Miss Adrienna Gomez Spencer. The first time I set my eyes on her was on Sept 1 2016, when I joined GEMS International School, Pearl City, Penang. She is my homeroom teacher. Miss Gomez is thin and has brownish short hair; she is very stylish. As the months flew by, I started to realise that she is a kind and loving teacher, but also very strict. Her students are her utmost concern.
Miss Gomez is a teacher who has her own unique and special way of bringing to life lessons that are very boring. She has various styles of teaching; at times she uses PowerPoint on a specific topic or subject. Our lessons are never boring and she always encourages us to produce good assignments. She only accepts the best.
She is that kind of teacher who never fails to spark our interest in all her lessons. When we were learning about animals, she brought in a cute little hamster which eventually became our class pet. We learnt to care for it that day and it really changed my life. I learnt the importance of love and respect; it’s the greatest gift.
The best thing about Miss Gomez is that she can be very witty at times; we often roared with laughter at her jokes. Under her guidance, our class won The Best-Behaved Class Award for two consecutive weeks.
Many times, she has to put up with me, a challenging and difficult child. I often drive her up the wall.
But with her care, patience, dedication and love; I have metamorphised into a child who follows instructions and has respect for all. I am now studious and have many friends.
Miss Gomez believes in me, recognises my potential and brings out the best in me. I will never ever forget what Miss Gomez has done for me.
WhereverIgoandwhateverIdo,Iwill always carry a part of Miss Gomez with me. As our final semester approaches, I know that I am going to miss her greatly when she leaves for the UK.
Thank you, Miss Gomez, and may God bless you and your family always. May you continue to inspire others, like how you have inspired me. –
