MY EXPERIENCE AS A TEACHER BY MISS. JACINTH DONEY
God who is merciful, desires our mercy, Jesus said, “Blessed are the
merciful, for they shall receive mercy.”
Teaching was my passion and life. I always showered a lot affection and love towards the students. Whenever I spoke to them at the assembly they would listen keenly. One fine morning a group of girls brought a boy to me saying, Mam he is always using bad words, without reacting sternly I looked at him in silence for him to defend himself, at once came the answer Mam I used to do it but now I am a new creation his answer calmed them all. In silence they went back to their classroom, never to return with a complain. By loving others as ourselves to the best of our ability within our means, we love God. Illness cut short my beautiful experiences with children, God in His great mercy brought me to this lovely Home for the Aged. Our dear Little Sisters take pleasure according to our needs to work and spread the works of Mercy within and outside our Home. Praise You Jesus, Thank You Jesus!
