An Effective Teacher
“Good teachers are costly, but bad teachers cost more”, just like the words imparted to me by one of the best teacher I’ve evr met where she says that “doctors can kill a person, a lawyer can cost one’s freedom but a teacher can destroy a nation”.

An effective teacher also knows almost everything, especially in the field that they are teaching. You can never share what you don’t have as well as you can never teach what you did not know.

They need to continue learning for them to meet the needs of the students and to adopt on the continuous changing world.
Most of all the best description of an effective teacher for me is the one who is like a candle, the one who consumes himself to light the way of their students. A teacher who has this characteristic is the one who is willing to put aside his own needs for the sake of his students, who conquers his own self to light and guide the way of his students for them to reach the success and the one who never stops encouraging each student to strive in life. Teachers like this are the ones needed by our world today, the one who touches the heart and leaves an eternal legacy on the lives of each of us.
