Teachers, good and bad

 

Having been in school for a number of years now, I have come across many types of teachers. Some are good while some are not so good.

The good ones are those who put effort into their work. They care for the welfare of their students. They genuinely want to teach us what they know. So despite their weaknesses we love and respect them.

Our present class teacher, Mr. Loga, is a model teacher. He not only teaches us English, but more importantly, what it means to be a human being. He is invariably patient, very approachable and always has a practical solution to any problem anyone may present to him. We are grateful for his guidance and advice.

On the other hand, our Mathematics teacher, is the worst of the lot. He comes in half-drunk and with a cigarette in his hand. Normally he just sits at the table and tells us to do exercise this or that. Sometimes he does not come at all. Rarely does he teach. When he does, it is almost impossible to follow him. His hands tremble and his speech is incoherent. So we are left to our own devices. Fortunately for me Mathematics is not too difficult. So I can cope, even without a teacher. Unfortunately for some, it means the difference between passing or failing. So some of them have resorted to taking private tuition.

In between these two are the other teachers. Some are good in some ways and bad in others. However all of them are predictable. So we know what to do when in their presence. The good ones we appreciate and respect. The bad ones we tolerate.

It is not for me to judge the teachers. They run their lives as they see fit. I wonder what they will write about us if they were to write an essay entitled "Students, Good And Bad".
