Tell me about the best teacher you ever had. He or she? When? What grade? What did he or she teach? Did you always like that teacher? Did he or she always like you as a student? My favorite teacher was my 3rd grade teacher. I was constantly made fun of in school for being poorer and stupid. (I don't know about that part=/) This teacher was the first teacher who ever defended me and punished my bullies. She cared, and she helped me when I needed it, school wise and home wise. She did not know much about my family, but I'm sure she had an idea of the abuse that was going on, so everyday I went to school, she did the best she could for me. I remember being a teenager,and seeing someone who looked JUST like her in a McDonald's, and I ran up to her and hugged her. I looked at hr, and it was her, but she looked at me as if she had no idea who I was. Turns out, it was actually her twin sister (whoever would've thought?), but she passed on the word that I missed my dear old teacher=)

A teacher is highly respected in our country.As a builder of the nation they deserve our respect. There are,however,various categories of teachers. Some are respected, some are feared and some are highly intelligent but cannot make the students understand. Only a teacher with the quality of the head, heart and the ability to make students understand is respected. When i was in 12 grade, i have found one teacher, he is our class teacher and teaches us English.He is 31 years old and comes from a respectable family. He is punctual,able,intelligent,kind and smart. He is an ex student of our school. He always keeps in touch with the latest methods of teaching. His special qualification is linguistics. He teach us correct pronunciation, corrects all our exercise books and explain everything well.More than a teacher he is our friend, philosopher and guide. He treats us as his own children,never beats or scolds us. He helps the disadvantages students,he is in all the staff members respect him. I am very proud to have him as our class teacher.
