Great Minds are Young

A Letter to my Students…

Posted on: July 29, 2011

Two years ago I stood very proud and happy before a group of extremely talented and creative young ladies, who worked really hard to create and organize one of the best performances on stage! That day, I saw them all sing, dance, act, laugh, scream, cheer, cry, support each other, and enjoy one of the best days ever. That day, they proved how responsible, disciplined, supportive and mature young people can be. That day featured one of the longest performances on stage in the history of the school; it was a full day program, in which 6 whole classes performed on stage and helped backstage. That day was an extremely special day; a beautiful memory I still hold tight in my heart. 

That day I was a proud teacher, a proud mother, and a proud friend! That day I wrote a letter from the heart to the hearts and minds of my dear students. I truly hope they still keep it in their hearts and minds…

I’m standing here today looking at all of you,

With a mixture of feelings; some happy and some blue,

Remembering all our moments, preciously held in the heart,

Knowing that wherever and how long you go, we’ll never be apart.


Of all the ups and downs and memories that we shared,

There are still a lot to do, a lot to keep, a lot to be declared,

When your eyes held tears and you couldn’t speak,

I was always near, ready to hold your hand and kiss your cheek.


Of all the lessons we’ve learned, few things I need you to hold tight,

Being SOMEBODY is a long way to go, you know that’s right!

Never give up, never let go, never take little, always aim high.

You’re beautiful, you’re smart, you’re special and nobody dares deny.


One more thing I need you to know, now that I’ve come to love you so,

If you ever miss your way, your light stops shining or your spirit was low,

Know that I’ll always be near, I’ll always seek to hear, and I’ll always help you go,

For you’ll always be in my heart and mind, treasured memories that’ll forever glow.

Hoping you would come by real soon, hurts to know
your tender hug won’t be there on the first school day 😦
It’s really hard leaving behind every memory we made, but
no doubts you will always be in our hearts.
You shall promise you will pay a visit –
I’ll miss your sympathy, your care and your benignity at school hard times.
Love you dearly x


I might miss the first day of school, but, as I promised, I’ll be there every step of the way… I’ll never be far, you know that 😉


I miss you, Ms. Chantal 😦 It won’t be the same without you, and as our new teachers will enter our lives, our old ones will always remain in our hearts 😉 I hope you have a wonderful life full of love & laughter, and I hope we’ll be hearing more from you 🙂 ❤


Meera, things can never be the same even with the same people;) Let’s work on making the coming years much better and more special than the previous ones, keeping each other in the heart and mind…
This is a space for us all to communicate and keep in touch in the best of ways, so let’s make the best out of it 😉

God, ever since u left i have missed these moments with u miss chantal, i cried reading this, i miss u way too much, i just wish to c u rlly soon. i love u sooooooooo much, u brought out a side of me that i never thought existed, u gave me confidence in myself, and u taught me loyalty and respect and i truly appreciate everything u have done for me. no one could ever replace such a wonderful and magnificent teacher.


Nada!!! I miss you very much dear and I miss your spirit! It means the world to me to learn that I had even the slightest positive impact in your life! That’s the greatest reward ever for any teacher, friend and mother! Keep aiming high!
