Tejju Teacher, a living Saint is no more – A Tribute by Thomas D’Souza(KNN)

Kemmannu, April 24, 2017:
Theresa Pais (78) Tejju Teacher, who passed away on Monday evening, will be remembered as a loving teacher and Mother like figure for a long time to come.

Born in Mangalore, she had a troubled childhood as she used to remember but studied enough to be a teacher in St. Philomina Higher Primary School Kemmannu for more than 40 years. She was a teacher, Mother, Guide and Guard for her students and had a profound impact on the character of the young children whom she taught in Carmel School molding them to be good individuals and citizens of this country.

Catechism was her special subject of teaching after her retirement and she trained young kids for the Sacrament of First Communion up to her last breath. She was a beloved motherly figure for the tiny tots with her tender touch.

After her retirement, Tejju Teacher resided in Hampankatte, Kemmannu but continued her association with Convent school and teach catechism to children readying for First Communion. She also used to help many families in their general needs.

Probably is one of the last links in a chain of popular teachers, who have taught in Convent School. Her contempories like Lilly Teacher and Alice Teacher have already passed away.

Apart from her teaching, Tejju teacher will be remembered for the kindness and loving care she showered on those who came in touch with her. A staunch believer in God, she did and dedicated everything she did to God Almighty.

Like life, she had a peaceful ending, hospitalized for about a week. She was very active up to last week and used to walk to Kemmannu from Hampankatte every day. Her death marks end of a life well lived in the service of the society and for the glory of God Almighty. Her students will always remember her as a loving Mother who touched their life and had a huge impact on their character.

Personally for me she was a living Saint who lived with us. Rest in peace beloved Teacher.

While we were changing the flooring of our church sanctuary she would interrupt me saying Jossey do something for our school.

I guess it is time we do something for the school ...

It’s much easier to express gratitude and sympathy in ones own turf than in someone else’s kingdom. There is no greater charity than sharing knowledge.

Dearest Tejju teacher, words are no sufficient to describe our sense of deep loss and sadness on your passing away. You meant the world to my family, especially in the absence of our parents who were away in Kuwait.

You were not only a wonderful guardian but also a mother to me and my siblings. Your tender loving care and guidance helped us in our day to day activities and in academics. You have guided and moulded many young children.

Though many years have passed by but, your goodness , kindness, generosity and exemplary life has left a deep impression and inspiration to us. Thank you teacher for the lovely golden memories you have left behind for my family and the community.

May God grant you eternal rest and may perpetual light shine upon you.

Look down upon us kindly and whisper a prayer for your dear ones.

I remain ever grateful to you. Rest In Peace teacher.
