Tell us about a teacher who had a real impact on your life, either for the better or the worse. How is your life different today because of him or her?
Teachers, the only true mentors after our parents! I’ve been my teachers’ pet for many early school years (NO BRAGGING;)).. But honestly I was quite a nerd in my early school years and many of my classmates still hold that opinion about me! Well.. according to the question of daily prompt the only teacher which inspired me most was my mathematics teacher in my 1st year at college..
Mathematics had been my favourite subject since 3rd or 4th grade but I really I started hating in my last year of school! The subject getting least of my attention was maths!! & I was really considered quitting maths in college.. but I didn’t! I continued mathematics on my parent’s suggestion and it turned into my favour!! Sir Sohail started teaching me mathematics in a way that very few people can teach!! Though I was not one of his favourite students but he was definitely one of my favourite teachers! He was a perfectionist in his field and made maths easy for me again! Not just as a teacher but he was a really nice person too! Mathematics.. A subject which many hate was truly redefined in his classes!! I know it looks like a fifth grader’s essay on ‘My favourite teacher’ but I really can’t describe his teachings (in class) in words! He taught me many easy ways to do mathematics and even referred to us a calculator which none other can beat! Well.. though I can’t describe it very well but the extent of his being favourite among the students was such that each student of his class cried when he passed away last year!! And yeah.. One of the reasons that I”ll be starting my studies in university next week in the department of mathematics is that he made me fall in love with mathematics again! I hope one day, In fact whenever I’ll try to teach mathematics I’ll be as good as him or at least comparable to how he taught! 🙂
