D is a child with special need I was helping 5 years ago. Event though he always make noises and hardly get along with his friends, but he was polite to me and accepted me to help him. I remember our first meeting when he was working in group with his friend and suddenly he got angry and tear up the paper they working on. He was good in Math and Science, although he couldn’t concentrate too long in listening to teacher explanation and writing. My time with him only for 6 months but it was a blessing rather than a burden. He graduated from elementary with a better self-control and gain more friends. He was transfer to another school in grade 9. I remember missing him so much during the Christmas break  that year and still misses him sometimes.
