How to Write a Nice Christmas Card to your Teacher
Teachers are an incredibly important part of any child’s life. From a very young age, we spend a good portion of our day at school to learn from teachers, and that’s why we can consider them as the people who contribute the most, along with parents, in shaping our character.
A teacher has the responsibility to make a child know what is right and what is wrong. A teacher should be a mentor that kindly takes your hand and sets you on the right path and prepares you for adulthood, and in the meantime makes you realize something about yourself, about what you love, about what your true purpose in life is.
As an adult, a teacher can give you important lessons about life that you will remember forever. It’s the person who should set an example for his\her students, who should listen to what they have to say and stimulate their interest in the subject that is being taught.
Unfortunately, teachers always get a bad reputation. That’s because people don’t realize that being a teacher is almost as challenging as being a parent, therefore, failure on their part is bound to happen pretty often. Teachers struggle to gain their students’ respect because in many cases they don’t truly care about the subject they’re teaching, or about leaving a lasting impact on their students. Children, be it consciously or unconsciously, pick up on that and respond by misbehaving.
Not all cultured, educated and knowledgeable people are fit to also teach their craft to children, or to people in general. But a person who is naturally suitable for the job can do wonders for one’s existence.
It’s a once in a lifetime event to find that special teacher that is able to create a beautiful bond with his\her students, a teacher that will be forever held dear to a young one’s heart even if months, years or decades have passed without seeing them.
