Sample Answer 1
Besides our parents, teachers play a vital role in shaping our minds and personality. Even though we might be deficient in some areas, they motivate us to dream big and work harder to overcome difficulties. From the time I was in class nine, I can recall some teachers for their amazing and enlightening tutelage. But among them, I remember one of them the most. Shanket Sir was our art and crafts mentor and he was one of the best teachers I have come across in my life.
He was a visionary with a great sense of humour and explained complicated art concepts in an intriguing way. Further, he always inspired us to use our imagination and create innovative sketches with authentic themes. His method of engaging us in art and craft gave us in-depth about the subject and stimulated our minds. All students, irrespective of class, looked up to this intelligent person for guidance and motivation. I can still remember that he never scolded us and never misbehaved with us. On the contrary, he gave us good scores with witty feedback.
To date, I remember him and how we enjoyed his classes. He had the power to draw everyone’s attention to him. I am grateful to him for urging me to participate in various art competitions. His admirable techniques always remained in my mind and helped me win a lot of those competitions. I was impressed by his ability to draw anything by observing that object and he aided me to master that skill. Finally, whatever I learnt from Shanket Sir aided me in enhancing my creative skills and now, I am a successful graphic designer.
Sample Answer 2
Since childhood, I abhorred Mathematics because I used to make silly mistakes and got chided by parents and teachers alike. My parents were fed up with me as they had tried every piece of advice in order to drive away my fear but failed miserably. Unfortunately, my marks were going down with every class until Ashish Sir became our Maths teacher in Class 9.
As a teacher, he was dreaded by students and parents. By appearance, he was very docile, and one can never assume what a strict teacher he is. He never rebuked us for making mistakes or scoring less, but the way he pitched his words with a sweet smile inflicted a lot of pain on everyone. Though he was never rude or had scolded me, I used to keep my distance.
Despite his behaviour, his teaching methods were inspirational. He drew examples from real life and explained each difficult sum in a way like no one has explained to me before. As a result, I tried hard to practice myself and began to improve. I still remember the last day of school before the board exam, when he called upon me and advised me on how to work on my weak areas. This motivated me to work very hard for the last few months. In the end, I got scored 88 in my most hated subject in the board exam and all my family members were stupified. Later, when I went to school to collect my results with my parents, I met him. I could feel in his words that he was proud of me and wanted me to do better.
Even now, I try to avoid any complicated mathematical problems, but just because of that one person, I am not afraid anymore. He taught me that if I want, I can overcome any hurdle with hard work and perseverance.
