Pupil appreciates her teacher
The note was folded into parts with the words 'open it' at the back. In the note, the pupil identified herself as Chidera and described Akie as her best teacher.
The thoughtful girl said she wanted to wish Akie a happy new month and urged her to use the N100 attached to it to buy a recharge card. Chidera added that it was all she had.
Akie shares more about Chidera
When asked if any actual occasion was being celebrated that warranted the gesture, an emotional Akie told Legit.ng that Chidera just wanted to appreciate the impact she has had in her life.
"No occasion was celebrated.
"After questioning her, she said "I'm her best teacher, I have really impacted her and she will miss me, since I would not be teaching in her school again next term."
Akie said the school is located in Eleme, Ogale, in Rivers state.
In the comment section of her post, Akie recalled how she flogged and drilled Chidera so she could improve in school. She wrote:
"This is the pupil I told you about last term. The one that I drilled and flogged very well. Her last position before I taught her was 7th, but, that term she took 1st. She has promised to come out with 1st position again this term."

Secondary school teacher exposes letter student wrote her
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a teacher made public the letter a secondary school student wrote her.
In the letter, the young boy professed his undying love for her and begged her to reciprocate.
Speaking further, he pleaded with her to overlook his age and focus more on making him useful since his love for her already made him 'useless'.
"Each time I see you it will be as if smoke is coming out from my eyes. Your beauty is killing me seriously. Although I am still in secondary school, I have plans of becoming a rich man," a part of the letter read.
