I was a pretty quiet kid, quite unsure of myself and very much content with fading into the background.
So before this day ends, I would like to thank the teachers that noticed this wallflower and urged me out of my hiding place.
From teachers in Poveda and ADMU to mentors in my many careers, a wave of gratitude goes out to you!
To my friends who have chosen teaching as a vocation, you are neon lights of inspiration.
Many, many thanks to the teachers of the world!
