Writing
Write a short essay on one of the following topics.
  1. My School
  2. My Best Teacher
  3. The Game I Like Most
  4. My Hobby
  5. My Best Teacher
    A teacher is a good source of inspiration and knowledge for students. A child idolizes his teachers more than anyone else in his life. I study in SB Academy. There are about 30 teachers in my school. I like all of my teachers. They all are very kind and loving. But my best teacher is Miss Ruby Rai. She teaches us English.

    Miss Rai is intelligent and a master of her subject. This is one quality that impresses all the students. She speaks English fluently with clear pronunciation. In the classroom, she presents the lessons with full of fun. She makes English lessons so easy for all of us that we all enjoy it. She gives us assignments regularly and corrects them nicely. She makes us do English project work time to time and tells us to participate in various extra-curricular activities.

    She not only possesses excellent teaching techniques, but also has some other important qualities that a good teacher should have. She is much disciplined but not so strict. The students are not terrified of her. In fact, we feel at ease when she is around. She is very soft spoken, kind, gentle, helping and caring. She is always ready to listen patiently to the problems of the students. We eagerly wait for her period every day and feel very sad when she is absent.

    To sum up, Miss Rai is an ideal teacher for us. She teaches us about things in the world and shares with us her knowledge and wisdom. She also suggests us to choose the path of truth, eternal wisdom and everlasting virtues. All these qualities make her a favourite of mine and all the students.
