Welcome warm to my website.
Why writing these letters?
Being the granny of my only grandchild made me more aware of what is going on in her life, better than in the case in a larger family.
My name is Stella and as a teacher my concern and sympathy lies with the slow and lost ones. Everybody always focuses on the top achievers, being the stars at school or college, they walk away with all the attention, leaving the rest behind.
Many times it is the ordinary ‘left behind’ learners who become the stars of tomorrow. They reach their success through hard work, dedication and determination.
Growing up as an only child, in an environment where generosity and assisting others in need was a lifestyle, the example set by my dear parents helping and caring for others is in my genes.
With this living experience I can easily see the mistakes my granddaughter is making through ignorance. Being at the vulnerable, stubborn, know-it-all stage it is hard to give advice … and the idea of the letters was born.
I just want to stipulate these letters are not in anyway professional advise, it is a reflection of my own experiences and what I was taught, forwarding it to my dearest granddaughter Thinette.
