Minerva Teacher, ...You really mean a lot to me, and I can’t think how my life would be if it weren’t for you. You not only help me to improve my English but also relieve me when I am stressful, give important lessons to me which I won’t forget for the rest of my life. You are an admirable person with the smile that you always wear, with your kind heart, with your energetic nature and with every feature of yours. It is impossible not to love you. I am so lucky to have you as my teacher and I, sincerely, have never felt this connected to a teacher in my life. I hope it isn’t disrespectful of me, but I see you as someone more than a teacher, and I hope you will always be a part of my life." - Zeynep
