Teacher – A Light That Illuminates in the Darkest of Nights

Behind every man or woman’s success is always a teacher. Teachers are like light houses that guide the ship of students to the shores of life. They are like the doctors treating the disorders of ignorance. They are the magicians who make the miracles of knowledge happen. This world would be a much darker and hostile place to live in if there were no teachers.

This life is a very complex phenomenon. Clouds of questions, mysteries, conflicts, doubts, uncertainties, and difficulties are always overcast. Teachers like the radiant sun dispel those clouds. They answer our questions; they solve mysteries of life; they resolve our conflicts; they clear our doubts; and turn our uncertainties into certainties.

We are also so lucky to have such wonderful and dedicated teachers in our life as our mentors. So we are thankful to life that has given us such knowledgeable teachers in our life. Dear teachers thanks for being the light for us!

Here’s a very few of them who have left an indelible mark in the odyssey of my life.

My UKG teachers Mrs. Joyce Peres – the very first appreciation that I have ever received from any teacher, few words she said about me even today rings in my heart. ‘Anna, you truly will reach great heights’ and that was the first time I saw glistening eyes of my mom , tears of happiness truly they were.

My 5th STD class teacher Mrs. Vaijo Prema, she was a women who exuded grace and confidence gave me a chance to play the lead role in school assembly skit, my first few milestones to public speaking.

Next up my geography teacher Mrs. Brenda who pushed me to do my best, she believed I could and so I did. Made me stand in my school elections even though I was hesitant and I became elected as the school pupil leader of Carmel school Kuwait for the academic year 2019- 2020.

There was one more person Mrs. Jini my computer science teacher who made me believe I could take up the responsibility. She possesses an aura of happiness and brings magic wherever she goes.

Now to a very special person – Sr. Violette the principal of Carmel school, A true epitome of grace and love. Every day I meet her, her smile just makes me forget everything even though there was waves of anxiety perturbed in the walls of my mind.

Mrs Anu my present class teacher, truly an embodiment of dedication and hard work. Her love for her profession intrigues me a lot at times.

Just like a potter molds a clay, we are molded to better individuals by our teachers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my parents my very first teachers who taught me to step beyond stifling boundaries and not be led by them but Him, they instilled in me values that won’t shiver at the face of adversity.

#True indebted to all of them

Blessed to have them all in my life
