“The best teachers are those who show you where to look but don’t tell you what to see.” -Alexandra K Trenfor
School is a second home to a child; the things they learn shape their minds, set them for success as a person and inspire in them a drive to do well in life. A child carries what they’re taught at a young age throughout their lives, today’s youth will become tomorrow’s leaders and teachers play vital role in this as they are the ones who have access to teach them in the most impressionable years. They have the power to shape leaders of the future and people who make an impression and have the facility to vary lives. A boarding school also known as a residential school is an institution where children have to live within the campus while following a certain set of rules. Children in these schools study and live during the year with their fellow students and teachers among other administrators and only visit their homes on festivals or during holidays.
A teacher is not only a mentor, a role model or an icon but most importantly they play the role of a parent. These teachers live with these kids more than their family does and indeed have a serious impact on a kid’s mind and life. They are the building blocks of a child’s personality, a good teacher is not only admired by a child but they also try to act and be like them.
They play, sing and live with these children and try to make them feel loved and protected even if they are miles away from their homes. They say the influence of a good teacher can never be erased, and I’d say that indeed is the reason why their profession has so much more value and respect.
“It’s the teacher that makes the difference, not the classroom.” -Michael Morpurgo
