'It takes a big heart to help shape little minds,' and that's one of the reasons why a teacher plays an important role in a person's life. The best ones spark a fire within you, and inspire you to create your own destiny. No doubt, it's rightly said that a teacher takes a hand, opens a mind and touches a heart.
