Think about the last time you broke a rule (a big one, not just ripping the tags off your pillows). Were you burned, or did things turn out for the best?
Today’s Prompt ask me to think about the last time I broke a rule! Since I couldn’t think of any, my mom reminded me of one and I instantly decided to write on that bad incident. I am not a usual rule breaker, instead I’m rather a nerdy student who’s always scared to step even a single toe out of line. Well, in my last year of school I did break a rule and found to my own cost that I’m just not meant to break rules. Cameras were not allowed in our school, but since it was the last day of our class everyone brought the cameras along with them and so did I, but It was me only who got caught with a camera. I guess the other girls were smart enough to hide it from the teachers or it was just me stupid enough to think we have been given permission to bring the camera on the last day. Well our dearest headmistress confiscated my camera and no matter how much I implored her to give it back, she won’t listen. After a big tantrum she told me to go and talk to the principal which I couldn’t do (I was too scared of her). Well thanks a lot to my class teacher, she told me to calm down and talked to the headmistress herself and conviced her to return me my camera! And Thank God I got my camera back but I still have a regret.. My camera was returned to me at the end of day and I couldn’t capture as many images as I wanted to! 😦
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! 🙂
