The other day I posted a picture of me and two ladies, who are from 3 generations of teachers. Yesterday, a former student from X years ago sent me this picture. She is Ms Yeung, the lady on the right. The young gentleman in the middle is Desmond, who is having his TP at this school. Ms Yeung was Desmond’s teacher at this school Y years ago. The gentleman on the left, Mr Lau, a former principal, was Ms Yeung’s secondary school teacher Z years ago. Mr Lau was visiting this school to observe Desmond’s lesson, and when he met Ms Yeung, he was surprised but still remembered her.
I can’t think of any other profession which has the capacity for connecting generations of people together.
