Sometimes in our life, we meet a special person who leaves everlasting impressions on our minds. He may have said or done something that really touches our souls. We will probably never forget that person because we owe the most part of our identity to him. Without him we might never have become the persons we are today. He may have been there for us when we were immature. He may have helped us to understand and learn better. He has motivated us to greater achievements.
Teacher is the one who plays an important role in our lives. He imparts us good knowledge so that we could become successful in our respective lives. He not only informs us about subject related knowledge but also shows the right path which leads us to success.
A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of interest, knowledge, and wisdom in the pupils.
A true teacher is a reward of God. He is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others. Teachers are theoretically the designer of nation. They are spiritual parents of the students. The good teacher makes the poor student good and the good student superior. That is why they are attributed with the six qualities.
- Best teachers hold high expectations.
- They think creatively.
- Best teachers are versatile and sensitive.
- They are interested, confident, and evolving.
- They are imperfectly human beings.
- Best teachers emphasize the fun in learning and in life.
There are the people who come into our lives and leave a burning sensation that lights up inside each of us, those are teachers.
“A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for other.”
An ideal teacher is a true builder of the nation. He is fearless, sincere and earnest in the discharge of his duties towards the students and the nation as a whole. An ideal teacher is considered as an object of admiration and devotion for the students. These days, students do not like to study from harsh and unsympathetic teachers. An ideal teacher creates such a confidence in his students that they are always ready to sacrifice for the cause of their teacher.
It is found that these days many teachers always try to find fault with work or deeds of their students instead of looking and changing their own attitudes. There comes utter ruin of the society when teachers grow weak or corrupt. As such, teachers must play the role of lamps that shatter darkness, become the lighthouses that guide the wandering ships to their right destinations and prevent any accidents. An ideal teacher builds an everlasting impression on the minds of his students. Such students then always remember ideal teachers and get them enshrined in their hearts. The hardworking and hard task masters are always remembered and loved by the students later. The students think that whatever position they have been able to attain is all due to the able guidance or hard work of their teacher.
An ideal teacher tries to spend most of his time in the pursuit of studies. He always tries to be regular and punctual to set an example before his students. Time is money for an ideal teacher who thinks that loss of a second means loss of hundreds of minutes to the nation.
An ideal teacher displays extreme simplicity in spite of his extra ordinary academic attainments. He dedicates his whole life to the cause of education. He never allows his students to be idle or undisciplined. The vastness of his knowledge deeply impresses every student but an ideal teacher is never proud of it. An ideal teacher is busy with his books and quest for some knowledge even after he gets retired. In fact, ideal teachers never get retired since, with age, their depth of information and knowledge goes on increasing. They always remain a source of knowledge and guidance.
“Ideal teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own.” — Nikos Kazantzakis
For an ideal teacher, all students are alike. He is never partial to any student and is always fair. An ideal teacher does not favour any student on grounds of his social status. He treats each student equally. He always remains simple in his habits. Ideal teachers are honoured not only at the state level but at the national level. Every year, teachers are selected for due recognition for their contribution to the cause of society by providing best education and guiding the students to build a better nation.
A master can tell you what he expects of you. A teacher, though, awakens your own expectations.
