Thangam Miss

    Chennai, India
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.

"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"

"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.
Mam ,
May be you are not present, but all our memories remain a crescent.
We miss you a lot. Bless us all."

"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..."
