" knowledge = know ledge"...knowing all ledges to achieve success. A teacher must be capable to bring the best even from a late bloomer. Teacher must inspire the students to find their inner actual abilities and guide to improve it .

In addition to the views
our education units, either college or school, should have all study rooms as subject rooms in spite of traditional class rooms.
This will-
1- Encourage teacher towards his duty and interests as well as allow him/her to do action research to implement his innovative ideas according to the need of subject,study and students in his laboratory i.e. subject room.
2- subj.labs of language,History,Evs fm primary level make the study more strong,interesting n scientific.
