Ms. Milly D' Souza is the Headmistress of Devagiri CMI Public School. She is a well-loved teacher who does wonders in her classes. She does not only teach children how to sing or recite poems. She also teaches them to be generous givers. Through the social service efforts of Ms. Milly, children have been able to raise funds for the victims of natural calamities. Just recently, children raised more than 1 lakh for the flood victims of Kashmir.
Ms. Milly is well- appreciated by all the students not only for her teaching abilities but most of all for her motherly care.
To prove this, we were able to get hold of a letter written for Ms. Milly from her former students. Here it is:
Dear Ms. Milly
Good teachers are a rare breed. They are knowledgeable, patient, enthusiastic and kind. They manage all this in the face of students who often do not want to be taught. It is by no means an easy task to mould a bunch of children into respectable, compassionate and knowledgeable adults. You have done an exceptional job expecting nothing in return from us.
It's the least we can do to say "Thank you, dear Ms. Milly!" once in a while. All the support you gave us helped us get to where we are today and we could have never done this nor reached this far, without the wisdom, courage and confidence you have instilled in us whilst at school.
You made us better persons, thank you for your patience! You showed us the way and were always there looking over our shoulders, guiding us, holding our hands and at times pushing us to go the extra mile.
We would thank you from the bottom of our heart, but for you, our hearts have no bottom. You will always be in our prayers for your good health and well-being....
