A teacher is a spark to inspire, the guide and the candle to a student's life. There is no limitto the influence a teacher can have on one or many students, she said.
Teaching is not just another profession but is a divine responsibility to guide and enlighten, she said, adding: 'We should remember: one book, one pen, one child and one teacher can change the world.'
