a letter to my students...

Dear Students,

In a month's time, you will appear for your final exams. I want you to remember a few things, especially those who are in their final semester.

The scores that you get in your exams will tell you something, but not 'everything'. The examiners don't know who you are, they don't know about your natural ability to dance and entertain, about your penchant for writing and drawing, about your caring nature towards your siblings, about your athletic capabilities and about how trustworthy you are to your friends. I know it because I have seen you closely.

Don't allow these scores to affect your lives. I know that you have been working hard, and that you will do well in the exams. I just want you to have a healthy approach and give in your personal best shot. Life is more important, but these little phases must add to the 'making' of life and not breaking it.

I wish you all good luck.

Love always,
Just Another Caring Teacher

I am sure the students need motivation not in terms of lecturing or giving them advice. Your words make them think. I wish many more teachers do write words of motivation to make the students enjoy writing exams not as a burden but part of their journey. Keep writing...
