‘Teaching changes your perception’

Ahead of Teachers’ Day, students from across India talk about their classroom favourites and their hopes and expectations from their mentors

Who is your favourite teacher? 

Shabia Ma’am! She teaches us biology.

What do you like about her?

I like that she is dedicated and enthusiastic, works hard and gives her 100 per cent in the classroom. She is very calm while teaching us.

What you wish teachers wouldn’t do?

This is a tough question! But yes, I think a teacher should not focus so much energy and time on checking our copies. They check our copies almost every day!

One thing you wish teachers would do?

They should be friendly and patient, then a student will always give his or her 100 per cent in the classroom. Students like such teachers and it makes their job easy as well.

Would you like to be a teacher when you grow up?

My father is a driver and my mother, a homemaker. I would love to become a teacher when I grow up.  I do believe teaching broadens your horizons, changes your perception, your thought process in a way that you get a vision that enables you to look ahead of others. Teachers contribute to society. I think there are very few professions like teaching through which you can contribute to society in such a big way.
