A TEACHER TO REMEMBER
Story 1: Most people would define a good teacher as someone who makes their students excel academically and do well on their tests. I believe that’s almost right, but a little off. I believe that a good teacher doesn’t have one dimension but two. They not only make you excel, but they make you want to go to school. They care about the student’s insecurities and problems, and most importantly they are there to support you.
My teacher is like that. Her name is Ms. Young and she’s changed the way I see the world. She isn’t one of those teachers that will give it their all just to be liked by the students. She honestly doesn’t fit in a category of teachers. Although it’s her first year teaching at High Tech Middle she fit in immediately. Normally the project based learning philosophy is hard for new teachers to adapt to, but Ms. Young did it effortlessly.
After nine years of switching from town to town, school to school, and teacher to teacher, Ms. Young is by far the best teacher I’ve ever had. She keeps the class in order, yet manages to make it fun at the same time. She’s always there for academic as well as personal help. Honestly for the first time I don’t want to pass the grade. Ms. Young has taught me a lot over the past school year. I’m not only speaking of history, writing, and reading. She has taught me to appreciate the little things, never judge, and be happy about the work I create. I have grown more in this year than any other, and I owe it almost completely to Ms. Young.
I used to think I was a good writer. Looking back on my work from just last year, I realize how much stronger my writing skills and vocabulary are. Ms. Young has done a superb job preparing me for high school, for which I am very grateful. I feel that I have developed my writing skills most this year than any other year.
Throughout the year Ms. Young has become my role model. I’ve had many people tell me that when they grow up they want to be like her. I believe that becoming half of the teacher she is would be an incredible achievement. I wrote this essay because I believe that she should be recognized. Not only because of her incredible teaching abilities, but because she made a difference in my life. She showed me that hard work pays off, and that I should never give up. These lessons will continue to have an effect on my life throughout high school and college. Thank you Ms. Young.
Story 2: If you visit my school, you will notice a personality with a gentle smile on his face and spects on his eyes. He is Mr. Naravane, my best teacher. He always wears his favorite white shirt and trousers. His clothes are always clean and neatly ironed.
Though he is very simple, he is intelligent. He teaches us English, the language which dances on the tip of his tongue. He teaches us with almost devotion. He tells us many antonyms, synonyms, proverbs and idioms which add to the treasure of our vocabulary. It’s becoming rich day-by-day. Naravane Sir is a born teacher. He is very good at teaching and experienced at managing the class. The method he uses to teach is developed by his own. We are never mere listeners during his period.
He takes our active participation while teaching he makes the subject so easy that even a dunce can understand the language. He never scolds or shouts at us. He is always very quiet and soothing. He has a very humorous style of teaching which keeps the class active and lively. He has a deep concern and true affection for students. He has a deep understanding for the problems of the students and is ready to solve them He always lends a hand of help to the students in need; He supplies them books and sometimes money for fees also.
He gives free teaching to poor students. In return he expects success and bright future. Naravane Sir is always sincere and dutiful at his work. Simple Style of life and high level of thought and behavior are his Ideals. To help to build up the career and character of students is the aim of his life. So for us he is something more than a teacher. He really deserves respect and love of students.
