Teachers don’t just teach subject content but guide, mentor and pass on values to their students. They mould and shape young minds.

Today I salute one of my school teachers.

Mr Singh was my Standard 5 (Grade 7) Maths and PE teacher. He was also passionate about the English language and encouraged us to expand our minds and vocabulary through reading and creative writing. He suggested keeping a special notebook for writing down new words we discovered. I used this book for creative writing as well. Three decades later, I still have this book which has been a source of inspiration on my writing journey.

Thank you Mr Singh for nurturing my love of reading and writing.
