The PMR results came out last two days and people were over the moon with the fact that we managed to double the total of students who got As for English. From a number of 16 students last year, this year we managed to get a whooping 32 As for this subject.
What saddens me though is the fact that along the while that I was looking at the list of names of the A students, counting how many of them came from my class, I had forgotten about those who managed to improve themselves although they did not get an A. I guess I was lost in the moment but a mistake like that that could have killed so many spirits. It murdered me years ago when I showed my assignment to a lecturer who was as strict as strict could be, that I got a C from the normal D. I was happpyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, you know. And what did she say? Okay, but it's not an A. It crushed me and I hate her till now. I know I was never the brightest in my batch, but hey..I got a C okay!!!
Going back to the original motion, why do we always see the As and rarely the B,C or D students? As long as they have upgraded themselves, I think that calls for a celebration too. These students should also be brought to the nearest fastfood restaurant and get treated for improving themselves not only the As. Who am I to say..I am just a mediocre teacher.
