Teachers in many ways are responsible for shaping our life and leading us in the right direction. We owe a great deal to what we are to teachers. We may not give credit to every teacher in our life, but there are few that stand out special. The effort a teacher puts to bring out the best in a person is seldom recognized. Teachers who are true to their profession work dedicatedly to pass on the knowledge they have onto their students. The most rewarding moment for a teacher is when their student makes it successful in life. Each one of us has heartwarming story to tell about a teacher. However, not everybody finds the time to go and personally meet their teacher. Many of us are in touch with our teachers and communicate with them on a regular basis. However, not many of us actually say thank you to a teacher.
