My Favorite Teacher
Teachers have three loves: the love of learning, the love of learners, and the love of bringing the first two loves together. – Scott Hayden
A teacher plays a significant role in shaping individuals. The contribution of teachers in our education is undeniable. Who is a teacher? The answer is that a teacher is a person who helps us acquire knowledge during our student life.
Throughout my educational journey, I have had the opportunity to learn from many respected teachers. However, one teacher stands out as my favorite above all others. Mr. Hasan is my favorite teacher. He teaches us Math at Memorial High School, where he is widely popular. Mr. Hasan is known for his friendly and amiable nature. He is also incredibly helpful.
Once upon a time, I was very fearful of a subject called “Math.” However, thanks to Mr. Hasan, Math has now become my favorite subject. He makes the lessons interesting with his unique teaching methods. According to him, studying should be fun. Due to his approachable demeanor, students feel comfortable discussing their academic problems with him without any hesitation. Even during break time, Mr. Hasan arranges separate classes for weaker students. He always emphasizes that teaching is not just his profession, but his mission.
Mr. Hasan never compromises on matters of injustice. If a student misbehaves with another student, he kindly explains the wrongdoing and helps the student realize their mistake. What could be a greater achievement for a teacher than this? Mr. Hasan is one of the most ideal and righteous individuals I have ever met.
What further increases my respect for Mr. Hasan is his sincerity. He is honest, dutiful, punctual, sincere, and gentle. He often says, “All students are very close to my heart. For me, all of you are like family.” In cases of prolonged student absences, Mr. Hasan personally calls the student’s home to inquire about their well-being.
Mr. Hasan is also passionate about reading books and encourages his students to do the same. During class, he discusses various stories and novels, sparking students’ interest in reading. He is also culturally inclined and proficient in playing the flute. Moreover, he loves writing stories and poems, some of which have been published in various magazines. Mr. Hasan encourages all students to participate in cultural activities alongside their studies. He possesses the ability to discover the hidden talents within each student. He strongly disapproves of insulting others, as he believes that insulting others is equivalent to insulting oneself. According to him, if you respect others, you will be respected in return. Respect begets respect.
A few months ago, Mr. Hasan went abroad for his higher education. Perhaps we won’t meet again. However, his advice will always remain with me. I pray to God to keep Mr. Hasan healthy and happy always.
