Yesterday was one of those happy days for me. One of those days when you feel a sense of purpose and fulfillment. I got a message from a student and it certianly made my day.
My dearly beloved and highly esteemed lecturer…Please let me express my gratitude for all the efforts in giving us in depth lectures. It is a privilege. I love your accent; I love your style; I love EVERYTHING about you! Whoa! It is amazing! I am proud to have you as my lecturer. Please keep the flag flying. I pray earnestly that I can be able to reproduce all you have taught me during the exams because I wouldn’t like to disappoint you. Have a nice day.
As soon as I concluded reading this I began bubbling with excitement because I knew for sure this was genuine and that the student wasn’t trying to ‘bobo’ me because he/she is a first class candidate.
I think every now and then, we should be constantly reminded of how much our work means to other people and also, we should not forget to send words of encouragement to the ones who have imparted us. This could give this person the needed drive to go the extra mile when the chips are down. As per his comment about my ‘accent’, I have no idea what he is talking about…lol. I do not think I have a unique accent.
