Sample Answer

My school life was perhaps the golden period of my childhood, and I am thankful for the wonderful experience it was. My teachers were highly qualified people, who were great at what they did. I admire and respect them for the way she helped me shape my life. I would like to mention one teacher in particular, Mrs. Uma. She was our class teacher for the seventh grade and taught us computer science.

I remember Mrs. Uma teaching us computer science during those years in my school. We were lucky to have her as our teacher as she had a great way of teaching. She was a very humble and down to earth person who taught us in an interactive manner to make the subject enjoyable. We always paid attention in class and never felt bored as she used to carry out small games and narrate interesting incidents in between the class.

Sometimes, she used to cancel the class and take us out to the lawns and gave us important life lessons that helped us inculcate many moral values. She made a lot of effort, going out of the way to help us grasp the intricacies of the subject. The way she gave individual attention to all the students, urged us to put more effort into our studies. She was a patient listener and always asked the students to approach her for any sort of problems that we might face even apart from studies. I used to stay back after school to take extra classes from her and she dedicatedly used to help me with the studies. She is a very noble person and I thank her for having such a positive influence on me.
