16 Thank You's in 16 Day's | Day 8: to my teacher.


Dear Miss Brumfitt,

I know that's not your name anymore but that's what it was when you made such a positive impact on my life. I didn't like school. Not understanding lesson's made me hate the subjects. Sometimes, being at school made me feel like I was suffocating. But in your class I could breathe. For 50 minutes, I enjoyed school.

Thank you for teaching me, educating me and empowering me. I don't owe my passion for writing to my family, destiny, courage or confidence. I owe it to you, a wonderful teacher who left a lasting imprint; simply by being a kind-hearted soul. Creativity, imagination and originality - the things you cultivated in me, have contributed to my life in ways that could never be measured.

Ordinary teachers teach their pupils to be good people by asking them to read inspirational books. You taught me to be a good person by being an inspiration myself. Ordinary teachers teach their pupils to succeed. You taught me to turn my failures into success. It never once felt as though you were teaching purely to earn a wage. It always felt as though you were teaching because you genuinely wanted to make a difference in our lives. You made school tolerable, English like-able and goals achievable. So thank you for giving me a priceless education and unconditional support. 

I will be forever grateful.
