True teachers are like bridges….in our life

We all remember our teachers be it from kindergarten times, till we leave our school behind and enter college where we again meet our teachers and as we grow in life, we keep encountering them in different disguises but in the end, they leave behind their impressions, shadows and a glowing light around us.

We all remember our teachers be it from kindergarten times, till we leave our school behind and enter college where we again meet our teachers and as we grow in life, we keep encountering them in different disguises but in the end, they leave behind their impressions, shadows and a glowing light around us.
Remember the teacher who would punish you for coming late, making noise, not paying attention in class, the same teacher would hug you and praise you in front of all when you topped the class. The teacher who would be patient and explain to you something you failed to understand and would never tire to help you with a problem. The teacher whose eyes would overflow with tears on seeing you do well in life and when you meet them after years they welcome you with the same smile, hug and comforting words.
These wonderful people are the one’s who make our world and make us what we are today, we owe a lot to them but many a times they go unnoticed, seen as a hindrance in our growth and we feel they are jealous of our doing well in life. A true dedicated caring honest teacher can never be jealous or impartial for them all students are alike and they never see who is rich or poor, who is more intelligent and who is still struggling …. Their goal in life is only one “ a better confident you”.
They will constantly remind you to your self-worth, it is the teacher who can bring a smile on the face of their students and wipe away their tears when they are punished. They help in us knowing that someone believes in them and is proud of every little thing you do. They are your eyes and ears in the journey of learning.
True teachers use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross over joyfully, encouraging them to create bridges of their own in life. A teacher’s job is to take a bunch of live wires and see what that they are well grounded.
So, the next time you meet your old teacher in life, remember to stop and thank them for giving you a wonderful education and making you what you are today. Remember a teacher’s job is never easy, it demands a lot of time, patience, love and understanding …they are humans too who sacrifice a lot in life to give us a good education and least we can do for them is be grateful and thankful.
Lastly a good teacher is like a candle which consumes itself to light the way for others. A good teacher takes your hand, opens your mind and touches your heart.
