Teachers – OUR ROLE MODELS
Education is not merely assimilation of knowledge but a holistic all round development that instills in a child the courage and confidence to face life's challenges.
Teachers are true role models or living examples to the students, and have to inculcate values that will help determine the future of the society.
A good teacher not only gives academic training but also teaches you to be sensitive to all life around you. The teacher allows the student to discover his true potential so that the course they pursue in future can be truly enjoyable and not something forcibly thrust on them. These are the qualities that make teaching a noble profession and the teacher, a powerful influence.
