Person I Admire the Most

Movies stars and singers, who make a lot of money and are famous, are teenager’s admiration. However, they don’t even know the person or their personality. To me admiration is a kind of respect. My mother is the only person who had entered my life and made my look at things differently.

The first reason that I admire my mother is she teaches me about the Experience is what you learn as you go  through your life. As a child , we always learned that people are really nice and generous. That is not true. As you step into the real world, you  will see the real face of the people and all different schemes , plan to fulfill them.

The mother takes care of her children first before she can take care of her. My mother always takes care of me first before she can take care of herself. For example , after a long day of work, even if she is really tired that she can just go home and relax. Instead, she makes dinner for the family and takes out a little time to look at my homework and listen to me complaining about the school, the teacher. And then she gets my bag pack ready for the next day before she can even go to take a shower. Nobody had ever done this for me and there will be no one who would do the same thing like my mother.

In conclusion, I admire my mother because she teaches me about life experience. My mother works so hard for our family and for my best. When I grow up I will take care of her as the way she did to me right now.

The main objective of this website is to provide quality study material to all students (from 1st to 12th class of any board) irrespective of their background as our motto is “Education for Everyone”. It is also a very good platform for teachers who want to share their valuable knowledge.



The word "teacher" is the noun form of the verb "teach". The word "teach" derives from the Old English word tæcan which means to show, point out, or give instruction.  In 1290, the word teacher began to be used for the index finger, or "one that points out". By 1300, it took on its modern meaning, or "one who teaches".       
In  India, the word guru is widely used with the general meaning of "teacher". "The word guru means teacher in Sanskrit and other Sanskrit-derived languages like Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, etc. The syllable  'gu means darkness and 'ru' means light ­ therefore 'guru' literally means 'the one who brings you from darkness to light'.  Thus a guru is one who is regarded as having great knowledge, wisdom, and authority in a certain area, and who uses it to guide others.


A good teacher is essentially a best friend of his students. He can be a friend in and off the class room in many ways. He can help the students by assisting them in their classroom activities, by giving proper directions and helps to complete their assigned tasks, by ensuring a healthy companionship in their outdoor activities, by stretching a hand in their problems and troubles, by counselling them to rectify their mistakes and advise them to behave well, to act well, to study well and finally to become a good human being.

Good teach­ers are always wel­come their stu­dents. Their doors are always open for the inquiry of their students’ knowl­edge. The teacher and the taught both endeav­our together in search of knowledge and truth.   Thus he should be too friendly to approach his students whenever and whatever they need and turned into a “My teacher My friend” concept.


As the dispeller of ignorance and the promoter of wisdom he leads his disciples to the ultimate light that is to the ultimate reality.   He also teaches the philosophy of education, the philosophy truth, goodness and beauty. Besides all he teach his students the eternal truths and the essence of all religions, harmony and the need for universal brotherhood.


A teacher can be a guide; he should be real guide in the classroom by giving proper direction in their learning, he should help them to find the right way and right directions in life, he should lead them to the heights of life and guide them in the midst of their troubles and helplessness. Finally he leads his students to the ultimate aim of education and to the all-round development of their personality. Here we remember that  “A teacher is complete only when she is a friend, philosopher and guide....”.


Thus a teacher is able to mould a single individual according to the needs and demands of the society. He can inculcate desirable changes and behavior modifications in him through his effective efforts. Through this individual a family is transformed and hence it paved the way for the reconstruction of the society, nation and the entire world. In the process of developing a healthy society, great attention has to be paid to education and learning, as well as good morals, and nobody is more suited to assist in this process than the humble teacher.


Teacher can be rightly called a nation builder. Without good teachers, no country can progress. The future of the nation is built by him through the process of education.  The teacher influences the immature minds of-the youth.  He treats and moulds the young mind into various forms. How a child thinks, acts, behaves, his knowledge, his actions all depends on how a teacher nourishes him throughout his teaching.  As nation which tries to march ahead on the road to progress must do so with the help of able teachers

          It is the teacher who has shown us the right path in which great men have built our nation. It is the teachers who incited the moral and national values in the children that remain with them for the lifetime.  Thus teachers play an important role in nation building as nation runs with the young minds and they are the creator of the nation.  According to a philosopher, "The world of tomorrow will be born from the schools of today." Thus the teacher is very significant as the builder of the nation.



Who is a role model?  A role model is a person whose behavior is imitated by others.   True role models are those who possess the qualities that we would like to have and those who have affected us in a way that maksses us want to be better people.    

Today there are some questions arises like Where are those teachers of yesteryears? Where are those epitomes of truth and knowledge? Where are those teachers of Role Models?

The answer is that, today a very few teachers satisfy these criteria and a few have fallen in disgrace. To some extent because of their own doings, and to some because of the norms of a decadent society in which we all exist. Such is the state of affairs that it is considered a stigma of these days to be called a teacher or a mash.

To overcome this stigma, it is the responsibility of the new generation teachers to work hard as sincere as in the gurus and rishies of the ancient times. And strongly hold in mind that teaching profession is one of the most respected jobs in the society. It is a great field which requires dedication with lots of responsibilities. It should not be just treated as a way of making money.   

Along with these, teachers should come forward to make necessary changes and modifications in their behaviour within the classroom and even outside the campus. The reason is that students see their teachers as a role models. they spend a great part of their day in front of their teachers. The each and every act of teacher is closely observed and sometimes may be imitated by the students.  In short ‘Students are the teachers of tomorrows and teachers have a great role in their character formation’. A teacher who understands this will be a model to the students and the society.  

There was a time when the teacher was known as epitome of all virtues. The rules, kings and their progeny would listen in rapt attention when the teacher spoke. To them, the teacher was their guide, their counselor and their truest friend. The teacher's word was regarded as the word of God.

          There are various ideas about the expansion of the word teacher. Each letter is explained differently in different ways. The most commonly used of them is explained below:

He should be a mentally and emotionally balanced person.   He should be calm and quiet, polite and patient to his students. Unless the result of which is the hatred of students and utter failure in his own classroom activities.

E stands for Efficiency. An ideal teacher should be efficient   in all of his classroom activities, he should have a high knowledge in his subjects, he should possess all the skills to impart his knowledge effectively and most conveniently, he should be able to meet the new and modern challenges in the field of his profession, he should be very competent to satisfy the needs and demands of his students.

Astands forAlert. The teacher should be vigilant and alert throughout his class. He should refresh his subject matter accordingly and adopt suitable strategies for the teaching learning process. He should maintain an order and discipline in and out of the classroom through his eye contact rather punishment. He should never be careless about the activities of his students.

C stand forConfidence. One of the essential qualities of a teacher is that he should be enough confident to express his ideas effectively to his audience. Being confident he should be well trained, well prepared and have thorough knowledge over the content and control over his students. 

H stand for Honesty.  Be honest and being honesty is the primary duty of all teachers.  Teacher is the chief exponent and propagator of truth. He should motivate his children to tell the truth always though it has painful experiences and inculcate in them the virtue of being truthful.

It is essential to enlighten his students and ensure their active participation. If the teacher is not enthusiastic the teaching - learning process may become dull and passive.

R stands for Resourceful. Resourcefulness is the gate way to the world of knowledge. The teacher should be rich in content enough to satisfy the quest of his students’ queries. He should have a thorough knowledge about the what and why of education and have an average knowledge on the overall happenings over the universe.


The role of teacher in our life is more important than that of our parents and other beloveds. Because it is the teacher or guru who, he leads us to the ultimate aim of life, to the ultimate reality, God the Almighty. It is better explained by the phrase matha-pitha-guru-daivam. But according to the great Indian philosopher Kabeer Das, guru important than that of god. He says “Guru and God both appear before me. To whom should I prostrate?  I bow before Guru who introduced God to me”. Now-a-day we had better read, understand and keep in mind the meaning underlying in  the following sloka:

Guru Brahma Gurur Vishnu

Guru Devo Maheshwaraha
Guru Saakshat Para Brahma
Tasmai Sree Gurave Namaha

Guru is verily the representative of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. He creates,  sustains knowledge and destroys the weeds of ignorance. I salute such a Guru.

  With best wishes…..
