I have enjoyed my teaching. I have had many girls and boys who have made success in life and I am proud that I’ve had this pleasure of helping them on their way. I taught in the primary schools, second grade most of the time. I dearly loved the children and treated them as my own. They taught me many things. Every child was dear to my heart. I tried to help them in character building, truth, honesty and religious faith. And above all to be a good citizen and encourage them to help make the world a peaceful one.
