My teachers are my heros


My teachers are my heros. There is not only one name. The teachers who taught me in school, college and university – these are my heros. I have deep respect towards my teachers. After I had learned to move legs, I first went to a school holding my mother’s hand. Then she handed it over to the teachers who did not have any blood relation but still put themselves in a responsible position for my future. I have spent about half of my life with my teachers. And it is from them that I have learnt to write, to read, and to think. There is a big hand of my teachers behind whatever I am able to do today or perhaps will be able to do in the future. They have spent most of their lives studying hard, and they work harder after they become teachers to make sure they deliver their knowledge to us as easily and as clearly as possible.

Teacher’s job is not that easy. I have seen my teachers having many sleepless nights checking our test papers thoroughly. You see the students, find their weaknesses and strengths, make syllabus which is both helpful and interesting for them, make them understand the topics in class, get them to involve and participate in class; and if these are still not helping for the students, then you help them after class. It is such a challenging and difficult job. My teachers had done the same to me. Whenever I was confused, they had made them clear to me. How much stupid my ideas would be, they would never underestimate them; instead they would see the positive aspect of it and encourage me to give ideas.

Their presence has always made me feel comfortable to speak out loud, to give ideas, and has encouraged me to go for or against social issues or any issues around me. They have shown me the space where I can stand myself and see any issues or problems or any other thing from different angles. This is mainly because of my teachers that made me wonder and think about life by their shared experiences. That’s why all of my teachers are my heros; I am always impressed by their dedication towards our lives.
