Inspiring Teachers Awards: Ms Boey's motherly care encourages us to study hard

Of all the teachers that have passed through Karry's life, her Zhenghua Secondary School science teacher Ms Boey has made the biggest impact on her.

Here is Karry's entry for the Samsung-Stomp Inspiring Teachers Awards:

"Ms Boey is one of my form teachers in school.

"She is the so-called mother of our class as she cares for every single one of us.

"Whenever the class is noisy, she tolerates the noise we make and hardly gets angry with us unless it becomes super noisy.

"She also teaches us science and will go through the questions and answers whenever we have finished.

"If we have any questions on what we don't understand, she will go through them slowly so we can better understand the questions and how we get the answers.

"She is willing to help us whenever we need her help and it feels so different without her around in school.

"She also encourages us to study hard so that we can go into the courses that we want in ITE."

The contest is now closed and winners will be contacted shortly.
