Influence Of Teachers
Teachers have watched you grow, taught you your basics, and have also molded you into the individuals that you are now. They have seen you through your academic years and have helped you grow in numerous ways. From kindergarten to college these guiding forces have played a crucial role in your holistic and intellectual development. Through the years, only one aspect of the academic journey stays constant and that is the association and effort of the teachers, and the influence they have on you. A teacher is a facilitator, who is enthusiastic, demonstrative and drives students to achieve their maximum potential. Teachers are much more than just strict characters with an obsession for discipline. Sure, teachers may be stern, but only for the betterment of your lives. Apart from immediate family, teachers are the second largest influence on the lives of children, and are the acting parents while children are at school.
