Who is a Teacher
A teacher is a person whose profession is to teach other people or help them to learn. All teachers’ responsibility is to imbibe educational knowledge in students through the use of a school curriculum, personal experiences, or creative ideas. They can explain what they know to their students and also help the students understand what they are teaching. A good teacher is also a good learner. They learn how their students learn to provide the necessary assistance to them.
Who is a Doctor
A doctor is a professional health worker whose responsibility is to ensure life safety. Doctors, who are also referred to as medical professionals, treat illnesses and injuries to improve a patient’s health. A necessary medical degree authorizes a physician to treat patients and recommend appropriate care, including pharmaceuticals, in most nations.
