It’s obvious that every student deserves guidance from a good teacher and as well the reverse is true as a good student indirectly tells the kind of a teacher one got through with.
From Kindergarten, through primary to High school, we all go through a life of constant learning, through the guidance of different teachers but however the best teachers remain rare to find and at some extent one may say that a good teacher is one in a million.
Through my process of learning, changing blackboards though, they still remain black. I have tried to take caution, trying to figure out who the best teacher is. And as a research and concern that I shared with many of my fellow students. Well, we came up with some characters, values, spirit to mention but a few for a good teacher to us who managed and will always do suit our inner expectations and preferences as well.
A good teacher is any teacher who gives me the best quality of education that equips me with the necessary knowledge and skills of doing a certain activity extra-ordinary well. A teacher who cares and minds about my ability of understanding rather than criticizing me. A teacher who doesn’t blame me from the point of view that I’m a failure but however finds the courage to believe and have hope in me that I can make to success once I incur the necessary commitment, dedication and hardworking.
A good teacher is any kind of a teacher who is so sensitive to my grades and my level of academic excellence as well. For instance when they’re poor, I would love a teacher who demands a lot of explanations as to why I have failed and well shows me the best way to excel by giving me the best tips to success.
A good teacher is anyone who prepares and shapes me into an extra-ordinary student who does extra-ordinary things extra-ordinary well, a teacher who literally prepares me to face successfully any kind of an exam that comes my way no matter how tough it may be.
And lastly a good teacher is one who encourages, motivates and inspires me into a hardworking, committed, dedicated, creative and innovative student with high self esteem towards success in life.
Though in my line of learning I have got a chance to pass through such responsible hands of good teachers but still the fact remains that such teacher with the kind of a spirit, character and values are rarely seen, hard to find and it’s one in a million who willing to offer such a service.
Dear good teachers my humble question is always one, is that really too much to ask?
May God bless every good teacher!!
