Throughout my academic life, I found and came into contact with several teachers whom I'll never forget mostly because of their personality and quality teaching. Such a teacher who I remember clearly was Mr Aurther who taught us History at our 8th grade.
I was then about 13-14 years old and was in class Eight. He had an admiring personality and a different way of teaching. He was very punctual and honest and inspired us to be so. He never pressurised us on studying and always told us stories on different historical events. In his classes, we never felt bored. He had a gift of making the lessons interesting and attracting students to his stories. Much of the history I now know is because of him.
My major was Science and I have not studied history that much but whatever interest I grew on history was mostly his contribution. I can still recall the stories I heard from him. He never misbehaved with any of his students and all of his students admired him very much. I learned later on that he was an honest and benevolent man in his personal life. I still remember him because he was a good man, a wise mentor and a nice person who taught us things that we still remember.
