I am an impatient person and I usually can't wait until my teacher gives me the answer to questions. I hope my teacher can forgive me for occasionally being impolite in class.

Tang Chi-ho, 16, Fung Kai Liu Man Shek Tong Secondary School

Thank you for the six years of teaching. If I could have one wish, I hope I can continue to learn with you.

Rai Anna-L, 16, St Margaret's Girls' College, Hong Kong

I sincerely hope all the teachers would realise that a class is like a private cult group and we will never tell on any of our fellow members no matter how bad the deed. And this is not just a matter of loyalty; it's all about trust.

Lam Mei, 15, Christian Alliance S. C. Chan Memorial College

I wish my class teacher knew more about my interpersonal relationships. During our teenage years, we tend to get a little emotional so there could be problems between friends. Teachers' advice may help students to resolve such disputes.

I wish my teacher knew that I am actually a pretty cool person outside school.

Kate Ng, 18, University of Hong Kong

I don't like when teachers ask a question which is not directed at a particular student in a class. Then if no one wants to answer, except that extrovert kid who always puts his hand up, the question is either too obvious or too difficult.
