Malcolm X noted, “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”
You can imagine the vital role that education plays in all of our life.
But often we fail to appreciate the struggle and hard work of the people who put us to the place we are now, and they are “Teachers.”
Since Teacher Day is approaching, I would like to appreciate and thank all the teachers and wish them Happy Teachers Day through this post.
We belong to the place we are only because of the values we are taught and the quality of education we got from our Teachers.
Teachers play an essential role in shaping society and the country and, most importantly, in the life of a student.
A teacher plays many different roles in different stages of a student’s life, and they are highly respected but often forgotten.
From loving as a father and a mother to students, they care about them equally as their friends or relatives do.
They are philosophers influencing the minds and future of students and enlightening them.
Apart from family, the students spend most of the time with teachers inheriting most of the values and teachings.
Teachers carry more significant responsibilities on their shoulders, producing future engineers, doctors, scientists, politicians, etc.
As we all know, teachers are essential in all our lives, from teaching us to read and write to learning different sets of skills and building confidence in students that lays the foundation of their future.
Let us all appreciate their hard work for building all our lives and thank them for being such a beautiful teacher and wish on this Teachers’ Day using beautiful teachers day quotes.

What is the importance of a teacher?
The teacher has easy access to the children from a very young age, and they do things that are taught to them for the rest of their lives.
They understand that today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders, and it’s their greater responsibility to build them in a significant way.
Teachers possess the ability to shape the future of the leaders the best way to prove good interest to society.
They are in the duty of producing some of the best world leaders for the world and good citizens of the country.
To some of the students, they are role models and provide inspirations too, for dreaming bigger and achieve their dreams.
They are the reasons for success and failure in students’ lives and provide the best help to solve their problems.
Teachers hold onto their students in their weakest and vulnerable moments, excel their talents, and bring the best qualities in them.
In short, teachers are the backbone of society and the country’s progress and make the world a better way to live.
The seven qualities of every good teacher
A teacher can communicate with students in a way none other can do. So, to be a good teacher, good and effective communication skills are required.
Communication opens the students’ minds, and the teacher can genuinely understand every student as they have easy access to their minds.
It also plays an essential role in teaching the academic curriculum in the best way students can understand.
2. Listening Skills
Being a teacher, one has to maintain a discipline where the students listen to them and adhere to it.
After communication, listening plays a significant role where teachers can listen to their students and vice versa.
We all know nothing significant can be achieved without proper discipline in life.
As families are often ignoring their children’s wronging, it becomes the duty of a teacher to teach them the value of discipline in life.
Discipline also helps in building respect for everyone and themselves. A student not disciplined enough is not good enough as a student.
Patience is a virtue and the essential quality of a teacher too.
A good teacher should have the patience to understand their students and help them out.
There are times when some students perform amazingly in their academics, while others need time to do well.
A patient teacher helps such students give them their time and builds a good connection with them.
Being a teacher, you are handling many children; it is not an easy task; it requires patience.
While a lack of patience from teachers, portray them in a negative way.
You can imagine the amount of patience a teacher must have in handling you, so next time you see your teacher, thank them for their patience.
Preparation plays a significant role in the academic progress of students.
A good teacher always prepares its students beforehand and reviewing the lessons and subjects for the test.
Building such a vital characteristic in the students from an early age helps them be prepared for any test they face in life.
Great teachers know the value of respect in life, and they make sure their students know its importance and respect others.
A teacher cannot mock, threaten, or humiliate its students for their mistakes.
They are the guiding masters and should respect them individually, no matter how badly they fail in tests.
If teachers show equal respect to their students, they will start respecting them more and start following more sincerely.
A good teacher is the one who is loved and respected by all students.
7. Being Friendly
Being friendly towards students is one of the most critical and significant qualities of a good teacher.
There are many benefits of being friendly with students, making it easy for students to approach them.
A friendly teacher is a bond to inspire students more, motivate them when they fail, and lift them.
A friendly attitude towards students encourages them to approach and clear their doubts.
In return, this creates a strong bond between teachers and students, where the students open up their minds and can share their views on many topics.
When such a strong bond is created between a teacher and students, trust is built between them, and a positive learning atmosphere is created.
