I am a pupil of class IX at Ispat High School, Sector - 2, Rourkela. Mr G.R. Das is my English teacher. He is an M.A. in English with a P.G. Diploma in the teaching of linguistics from C.I.E.F. Hyderabad. He also holds a degree in Education from Sambalpur University.
He is a middle-aged man with a good physique. He is very sincere in his duties and attends school on time. He is very kind and loving, but he can be very strict if needed. He maintains perfect discipline in the class.
He comes to class on time and teaches English very well. He teaches us the correct pronunciation of new words and their usage. He uses his own method of teaching, which enables us to understand all that he teaches.
It is because of him that most of us are now able to speak and write English perfectly well.
Not only is he a good English teacher, but he is also our guide in essay and debate competitions. We have been able to win prizes and medals in almost all competitions because of his sincere efforts to train and guide us on the right line.
He is a good violinist. He composes songs for our cultural programs and sets them to music. He plays the violin so sweetly that everybody sits spellbound as he plays a tune on it.
Interestingly, he is a delightful person and he has a very good sense of humour. His humour is very clever, sometimes we don't understand it. Above all, he is a good orator and makes public speeches in simple, plain and idiomatic English. The audience admires his oratory and praises him by clapping.
With his various qualities and accomplishments, Mr Das has been the pride of our school over the years. So everybody in our school holds him in high esteem.
