My mother. Number 1 woman in my life. A thorough and courageous grade 7 maths and science teacher. I knew my mom was an amazing teacher when I was in her class one afternoon to pick her up and she was running her afternoon extra lessons. The lesson was about conduction. Mind you I was probably a 26 year old science graduate but that was the first time I actually understood the concept. My mom has what has been medically termed a "damaged knee." Through it all she still wakes up in the morning to go attend to her students. She remembers that they are on their way to high school and that they need her. During lock down all she could think about was her students.
She loves her profession and it radiates through her the love her students have for her.
I'm proud to have a teacher for a mother ????
