My Last Day of School

My official last day of teaching was 1st March, 2013. That day was bitter sweet for me because I will seriously miss my students, teachers, and school staff. As an appreciation of thanks to everyone, I gave a a farewell speech to the whole school in Hindi. It was memorable and extremely funny. Believe it or not, I was actually nervous because I was afraid I would pull the same stunt as a guy in the movie, 3 Idiots—who gave a speech in Hindi and said everything horribly wrong. Nevertheless, I was good. The whole school—students, teaches, and especially Principal sir were shocked!! I am happy I did it because as the Spoken English teacher, I worked to inspire confidence in speaking English to my students. The fact that I boldly went before the school to present a speech in their native language demonstrated what I have been teaching them all along. Per my last day, I gave all my students farewell goody bags (each had a piece of candy, pen, and Sandy Ma’am’s golden tips for Spoken English)—they loved it!! For my staff, I cooked my family’s traditional soup--soup Joumou (Pumpkin soup), they kept asking for seconds.
