In many cases, they shape the destinies of the students.

He or she is like a gardener who waters tiny delicate flowers known as children, till they learn to adapt and survive on their own.

Every relationship requires dedication and commitment as well as mutual respect in order to be successful. Similarly, a teacher student relationship can only be productive if these requirements are fulfilled. A student must always respect his or her teacher and hold himor her in highest esteem.
