Sample Answer of Describe a Teacher From the Past Whom You Remember
Well, during my school period, I had come across different teachers who were equally hard-working as well as intelligent. But here, I would like to speak about a teacher who had an everlasting impact on my psyche. He was my language teacher. Actually, he was a retired army officer, and he used to teach me a foreign language. I still remember that when he used to teach us, I was just turned into the eighth standard, and I was a teenager. I liked that person because he was committed to his duties and was very persuasive. Moreover, he was compassionate enough as well as his love for the teaching profession made the children like him. He helped every student in learning the English language because at that time, speaking English fluently was not everybody’s cup of tea. Because children escaped from attending English class, but he introduced different techniques to teach students via word puzzles, rearranging words as well as debates, and some group discussions were also organised by him.
We learnt English in a very easy way, and I still remember that teacher because whatever the level of English now I have, it is due to the efforts of my English teacher. He motivated us to take part in creative writing competitions as well as calligraphy competitions, and I always won first prize in a creative writing competition, and although now I have grown up, I do participate in any competition which is organised in my city. So I give the whole credit to my language teacher, who made me a natural speaker instead of a robot learner. In addition, the qualities that I acquired from my teacher are unparalleled. Because I learnt social skills, ethical values from my teacher. I still remember that near the library, there was an honesty shop that was organised to build integrity as well as humanitarian gesture among children so that they could become productive members of society. So this was the teacher whom I still remember, and I admire them a lot for his good teaching skills.
