If you ask a student what makes him or her successful in school, you probably won’t hear about some fantastic new book or video lecture series. Most likely you will hear something like, it was all because of his/her teacher for not giving up.

A teacher (also called a school teacher) is a person who provides education for students.The role of teacher is often formal and ongoing, carried out at a school or other place of formal education.

Recently a very heart warming story of a former student and teacher went viral on social media.

The patient, Virgie Roble, has just checked out of Perpetual Succour Hospital in Lahug when she got a note from the nurses’ station.

It says: “Professional Fee paid 22 years ago.”

Dr. Dilbert Monicit, a medical doctor in Cebu City waived his professional fee for a former teacher. He did not charge anything for his services as a surgeon. It was his way of expressing gratitude to his favorite high school teacher who molded him into what he has become now.

The 64-year-old teacher thanked him for the early Christmas gift. It was definitely good karma, a perfect example of the proverb “you reap what you sow.”
