A great teacher is....

- someone who knows his/her subject matter well and able to impart the knowledge to his/her students

- someone who focuses not only on the academic excellence of the students but their values as well

- someone who writes words of encouragement to students when they didn't do well in exams

- someone who lifts the spirits of students whenever they don't reach their goal and show them that he/she is there to guide them throughout the process of learning things again

- someone who is able to talk to the parents about their children's progress and shares with them different way to help the students do better next time

- someone who is trustworthy enough for the students to be open with all their questions and doubts about the subject matter

- someone who is approachable enough that every parent is at ease with in voicing out their concerns about their children

- someone who takes time and makes time to let students as well as parents know that help/advice is just a phone call, SMS or an email away

- someone who tries to bring out the best in every student as much as they can, with the help of the parents

- someone who truly cares, not only about the grades, but the whole well-being of the student

- someone who is willing to work hand in hand with parents to help a student in need

- someone who inspires and motivates

- someone who shows authority and is strict, but also has a caring nature

A great teacher is all of these and more.

I'm very fortunate to be able to work with such great teachers in my sons' learning journeys.

I will forever be grateful to them.

Thumbs up to these great teachers!!!
