An Influential Teacher
Teachers have been around ever since humans arrived. Some teachers were more influential than others. However, not all good teachers are famous. Teachers don’t have to be from your school, they can be anywhere. One really influential teacher in my life is my school friend Skylar. He is very influential because I got to be real close to him, he taught me several things about my hobby, and he also showed me things related to schoolwork.
When you think of teachers, you might think of a professor or a school teacher. However, friends have taught me a huge part of what I know. Skylar is a teacher that was close to me, so I could rely on him. We also learned together, and I knew that he was just trying to help whenever he criticized me. When you trust your teacher, learning becomes a lot easier. )
Another part of what made him influential is what he taught me. He taught me several soccer tricks and ways that I can improve. I played on the same soccer team as Skylar, and this let me learn through observing. He also pushed me to work harder whenever I was slacking, but it really helped me learn more about my hobby. Learning with someone can sometimes be a great way to grow because it lets you see your own mistakes, but it also lets you see others’. I still kind of think of Skylar as a coach and a teammate as well as a friend.
The last big impact he had on me was mentally. Skylar and I often did homework together(though not anymore because of the pandemic), and I got to see his way of thinking. He showed me how his brain ticks, and I got to share how I think. He showed me new ways to work out problems, but he also showed me his creativity. Skylar and I have been working on a book, and we love to write when we have spare time. He often finds a way to continue when I’m stuck, and seeing that helps me find creative solutions to other things.
I’ve learned through Skylar that friends can be the greatest teacher. Skylar helped me learn and grow by being a close friend while helping me improve in my hobby, as well as making my brain explode with new ways of thinking. I now know that friends are why I am here today. Copyright@2021 By Chanyul Kim
