Dear favorite teacher,
I am usually a bad student, who does not pay attention in class, but by the time, you started teaching me I had read a few books meant for people above my age, and developed what you can call a reasoning faculty.
Plus, my classmates were not that bright when it comes to literature, and I with my limited knowledge became someone who knew a lot of answers.
It was not as if, I was very attentive or anything, and there have been a lot of punishments in your period that I found painful, but, at the end of the day, you were always softer on me compared to a few other students.
The last two years of school, could have been a little less sweeter had there not been the ego boost that your period was.
