A Little Great Teacher

Cheung Chiu Shan    1962

Beauty comes in two forms -- inner beauty and superficial beauty. The teacher who possesses the most inner beauty is Ms. Poon Hai Hung. One could not tell that such a petite figure would have such a brilliant mind. Ms. Poon always came to the class well-prepared. Rarely was she unable to answer any questions. She taught so many courses--algebra, trigonometry and calculus. I remember her dashing out of the classroom after the bell rang. I could sense she had very little recess time for herself. Sometimes the idea of going up to her after class and giving her a big hug for solving difficult problems did cross my mind. I wish I could do that if I were not living in a society adhering strictly  to convention and etiquette.
