  1. NOUN: an individual whose profession is to formally instruct others in an educational setting

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” -Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

  1. NOUN: a person who provides certain material to others in an informal setting

“It was my teacher’s genius, her quick sympathy, her loving tact which made the first years of my education so beautiful.”-Helen Keller (1880-1968)

Teaching cannot solely be defined by an institutional form of instruction, but rather, the relationships that are built and develop based on its framework. The bond between Helen Keller and her tutor Anne Sullivan evolved into much more than a teacher, student relationship.
