I always believe become a teacher is a very respectful occupation. A good teacher is usually a good student, and I am talking in a very wide senses ya; not merely in a classroom setting.
A good teacher could spark and lite up the whole scene with her ideas, question and perhaps a bit of Life advice for her students. He will not ask his students to blindly memorize everything he said or write, because he knows every person need a valid reason to do something.
My greatest teacher? Well, in person.. I haven’t met him/her .. I consider Pico Iyer, Elizabeth Gilbert, John Holt, Khaled Hosseini, Yuval Noah H, Harper Lee, and many many more are my greatest teachers. And I’m forever grateful for them.
Cheers,may you too found wonder full teachers in life,
