My favorite teacher was Mrs. Ruby who had taught me English for 2 years. She had studied in America and came back Hong Kong to be an English teacher. She had sparkle eyes and blond hair. She‘s just a bit taller than I was. She always smiled to us as we saw each other in the hallway at school. She seemed very strict when the first I met her. However, we had a lot of fun during her classes as we had been told the jokes in English. She had skills at teaching, sense of humor, friendly, patient and easygoing.
I had had her classes when I was in grade 10. I got good marks on it since then. She gave us tons of assignments which were for improving our English. She’s very patient and enthusiastic to teach us whenever we had questions in her classes. Moreover, she would stay at school after school finished for hours to solve the problems that we had in her class. She would spend her private time to teach us western penmanship which was using two pencils and tightened them together with rubber bands. Then we could draw a letter with them. It‘s amazing. I learnt it while I had lunch with her. She would talk about her life also during lunch and I found we had a lot in common. She liked eating Chinese and Japanese. Her favorite band was Westlife as I was. She always listened to pop music and sang karaoke. She said that it would be the way to be easier communicating with her students. She’s always friendly and easygoing.
She encouraged us to do voluntary work after school or at weekends. She was in charge of YMCA and leaded a group of students to do lots different kinds of services. Such as cleaning houses for seniors who lived by themselves; selling stickers for charity; leading blind people to walk in the street regularly and planting bushes for the protesting environment organization. She’s a very helpful person.
Sometimes, she would get furious though when the students didn’t hand in the assignments on time. We would get punishmen...
