- Place of passing:
|We miss you..|
This is a memorial to our beloved teacher Ms. Thangam Pappu who tragically passed away on Oct 17, 2016 after a brief battle with illness.
We can't quite believe that she is no longer with us. Thangam Miss, as we all know her, was a passionate teacher of Mathematics and generations of students would remember her for introducing them to its many wonders.
She had wide interests and an almost boundless desire to pass on her excitement to those around her. She was generous and thoughtful in ways that seem out of reach for the rest of us. A role model in more ways than one, she will remain a lasting influence on her students.
Her passing is a personal loss to many of us and a tremendous loss to Devi Academy where she taught.
We will always miss you.
"Can't believe she's no more. Inspired us all - always led by personal example. A genuinely wonderful human being. A deep personal loss for me, and for many of us."
"This was hard to believe,she had a good contribution to my developing of interest in the subject of mathematics which turned out to be my life today..You will be remembered forever."
"My deepest sympathy to the family and friends.May you all take comfort in this scripture at (John 5:28,29)."those in the memorial tomb will here his voice and come out ""
"I am extremely shocked to hear about the sad demise of Mrs Thangam. She was such an ideal teacher and a lovely human being. She was known for her impeccable manners . A teacher loved by all. May her soul rest in peace."
"It is better than gold to be well spoken of in such high regard." Her students loved her so dearly and it's proof that her caring ways and love of teaching touched so many people. Thangam Miss concerned herself selflessly for the good of many. Condolences to her family who were fortunate to share such love. Isaiah 25:8 informs us that death will be swallowed up forever and Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. Facilitator to educator, "Job well done Thangam Miss"
"Thangam miss has definitely played a huge part in my life. If I could do some mathematics in my masters degree now, I owe her too.
This loss is shocking, but I am sure she would be proud of all her students. Miss you mam."
"Mrs. Thangam was one of the few teachers who really cared for our wellbeing."
"She never stopped teaching us. I have learnt a very important lesson from her that it is important to pledge your organs. I am going to do that ASAP. I am doing it as a tribute to my teacher, my second mother and mentor. I hope all her students will do the same to honor her... She never left us and she is always with us to bless us and guide us in all our endeavors.."
""When some1 u love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure"
V treasure ur days with us mam.. V al miss you alot ... :("
"She has been a wonderful Teacher who has brought many students like me to touch greater heights. Most people tend to escape from mathematics but she makes us feel comfortable with the subject with no fear. More than a mathematics teacher she has been a part of everybody's success. The relationship does not end in schooling, it continues even after our schooling. She is one of the best teacher ever i have seen so far, I am here today is because she is one among the person who moulded me in all aspects. It has been 13 years i have completed my schooling but still, i remember every moment. Nobody could replace her at all, entire Devi Academy would be missing her :-("
"She was one of the teachers who shaped me into who I'm today. I'm forever grateful to my teachers, be it school or college...Very sad to know that she is no more in this mortal world...."
""Just as you are named, so are you; an antique so precious."
If it weren't her, a lot of hearts would have been burdened with numbers and numerals. A preacher in reality she taught much more than our books. It was a pride to every heart of Devi Academy when in one of the years she was awarded the best teacher and that we came to know for our surprise she took a day's leave only to receive her memento. I m sure even today to many she remains the best teacher.
She was a good human being that the Almighty had created which is why he wanted her to return to him instead of battling alone.
May be you are not present, but all our memories remain a crescent.
We miss you a lot. Bless us all."
"She was the one & only INSPIRATIONAL maths teacher in my life , because of her I'm standing here now , we can't forget ur maths in the black board and the graceful smile on your face , We missed you so much mam ."
"Such a sweet soul with a smile on her face always.RIP Mam"
"A cluster of memories sprinkled with tears,
Wishing God had spared you a few more years.
We miss you ma'am !"
"I have got many punishments from her but, coming to know that she is no more is the most painful punishment In my life."
"My relationship with Thangam mam was established due to my love towards mathematics......she was my tutor for about six years....thr wer a lot of punishments i would hav gt only frm her...but her presence in my life had made me wat i m now....i represented her during my teacher's day.....the last one with her"
"It has been four years since I left Devi Academy. The school has taught and shaped me to a better person today. I am deeply saddened to hear about Thangam Miss. She was absolutely the best teacher I ever had and I was fortunate to have her in Grade 9. She is the first person to have confidence and faith on me that I can do better in Math. I still remember, she came to me and said "Girls should not cry, and you should be bold." Every time, I go through some thing, those words always comforted me and made me more stronger. She always had a smile on her face and a positive person that I can ever look up to. Besides school, she has taught us important life lessons that prepared us for the future. May her soul rest in peace!!!"
"We could still not that she is not with us.. She is the person who instilled the interest in maths for me, and many of us as a matter of fact. The moment I heard of her name, every math lessons flashes in my mind. She always inspired us and motivated us when we were weak, made us score marks and love the subject as an apple pie. Teaches with that smiling face, no matter how many times you ask, without hesitation. Even during those annual days and all, I would see a big avataar in miss, always running from first floor to ground floor, then to the fourth floor.. Took personal care of students.. Such a an awesome teacher, and a wonderful person..
We miss you Thangam Miss..."
"Apart from an excellent maths teacher , the interest and knowledge in the subject was phenomenal !!
You stood as a unique personality not only as a favorite maths teacher but painted colourful memories in each and everyone's heart by means of your humble mesmerizing character and nobility! ! You have only faced a physical end but you'll stay ever within all your friends and students! !"
"Maám I still remember you taught us Maths in 8th Standard. Such a soft spoken and inspiration you were as a person. You will be remembered for ever. Rest in peace Maám."
"The beauty of stars and constellations
Will be admired all the more now
Our Thangam miss is up there
Shining like a bright star
Miss u mam!!"
"Inspiration: she always encourage her students.she told a story about zen saint i still remember her words - zen saints use to enjoy even a small things they do ,if they drink even a cup of tea they use to enjoy each n every sip of it. like wise she tells us to enjoy the work we do be it maths or any things we do. It's more than 15 yr still i remember her words that's the inspiration she spreads...
We all miss you a lot thangam miss"
