One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world. – Malala Yousafzai –
Teachers are the ones who play a very vital role in shaping our future. From the Pre-Kinder Garden to your Post-Doctoral fellowships, they teach, impart knowledge, share ethical values, and imbibe morality, thereby shaping our personality as a strong one. Some teachings of your teacher remain in your memories even when you grow up and move forward to different professions. So, do you love your teacher?
Throughout our lives, we will be having many kith and kins who will hold a special place in our hearts. For me, one such person is my teacher. All of us, for sure, will definitely agree to the fact that the kinship between us and our kindergarten teachers could not be well-defined. I like my nursery teacher, Preeta so much. There is something very magical about her. Maybe, she was the first teacher in my life or maybe, she was very sweet in talking to all of us, I am unable to portray why she is always my favourite. I relied on her blindly. I have some cherished memories with my teacher. Whenever I think of those memories, it makes me blissful. One day, I had a very bad fever and continuously cry looking for my mom. Teacher Preeta hugs me and make me fall asleep till my mom comes. I felt like my mom beside me during that time. The bonding between us unexplainable. She’s 60 now and I’m 29. Our relationship continues till now. We both love each other the same way as we were young.
Then I step into my primary school. First day of school, first teacher I saw is my class teacher. I sit in the class, nervous and look the door, there is an angel comes in. My class teacher Rita. She wears a white colour dress, red colour heels and a small marble earing. She greets us softly and respectfully. After that, I used to eagerly wait for her class. Teacher Rita then taught me till standard six. She puts a lot of effort in explaining every chapter. There are many activities given at the end of every lesson and she makes us participate in all of them. Not only that, but she also encourages us to take part in drama and poem competitions.
Another great quality of hers is that she treats every child equally. After explaining the lesson to us, she asks each one of us different questions about the chapter. Sometimes, we also love to talk about our personal lives, like what do we like about our lives, how our parents work hard for us, and things like that. I lost contact with her after I finish my primary schooling. Teacher Rita transferred to Johor Bharu. I did try to search for her contact during my secondary schooling but I couldn’t get her contact. Two years ago, I went for a dinner in Restaurant Khalid, Tanjung Harapan, Port Klang, Selangor. There is a family having their dinner as well beside my table. I cross the table to wash my hand, suddenly someone tab me from behind. I turn back and saw Its Teacher Rita. I scream happily and hug Teacher Rita and I wonder how she can recognize me. We had a long chit chat for almost 1 hour, we exchange our contact number, I have invited her for a dinner in my house and our relationship continues till now but more as a friend and mentor. If I need counselling or ideas, I used to call her. She guides me till now. She’s my inspiration.
Today the general population are changing and their reasoning and advancement thoughts are more against nature. Presently for the world, a teacher is only a teacher. Various offices and departments only tend to remember them on teachers’ day during various events and usually do not remember them otherwise. Individuals also share few posts via web-based networking media with respect to teachers and after that just forget them. Individuals overlook a bigger number of things that they are gaining from teachers. Schools and students also praise the teacher’s day event and value the endeavors teachers are doing. This is incredible if individuals ought to pursue the exercises of teachers also.
The genuine present for teachers is when students turn into a decent individual, effective in their vocation and business. Not all teacher is great in instructing and comparatively, not all students resemble “Shishya and Guru” particularly in the advanced period. A few teachers are incredible and they are dependable in heart of students all life along.
Students admire teachers for counsel and direction. Students are inspired by scholastic exercises as well as they are intrigued to pursue their life exercises. That is the reason it’s exceedingly essential for teachers to motivate students to pursue great propensities not terrible by their own precedent. An instruction is critical in everybody’s life and assumes different jobs in various phases of life. It’s imperative that individuals understand the significance of teachers and pursue their teachers in the right spirit.
Having a good teacher who can share an amalgamated relationship with the students is a boon. A good teacher should be a good mentor, a philosopher, a guide, a friend and above all a surrogate parent to the children. I am lucky that I had gotten one in my lifetime. In conclusion, good teachers are hard to find but when you find one, make the most out of them.
