my mother, my teacher

I was the oldest of 3 girls.

my first teacher. my mother.

she taught for 35 years.

she was strict.  very.

supported  me to do more. do well.

after all these years, she still got it.

Let's start from the basics.  
FLAG girls were so attentive.  She still got it!!

We don't have blackboard at the moment. We will have soon, Thanks to our lovely donors!!

Say 'Ahh'
She was pooped after just a few minutes. Why she retired her ' teacher's stick' over a year ago
her students have not forgotten about her. even to this day.

they would approached her on the street. she doesn't recognize them.

but they do.

although my mom was not with me during the important years of my life.
there's still a lot of lessons I have learned from her.
i am still learning. she is still teaching.
this time it's just me. 

Thank you for stopping by,
