Describe a typical day in the life of a teacher in Singapore. Clad in an impeccable white blouse and tight black pencil skirt, Mrs. Tay walked briskly towards the classroom where her first lesson was to be held. The sweltering and scorching weather was making her feel less than comfortable. She could feel beads of sweat trickling down her forehead.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

There could be more figurative language used but the reader has a clear idea of Mrs Tav from the detail and the dialogue.
