Know your teacher better!

Teachers. The people who are teaching, challenging and inspiring us, the students. They are, besides our parents, the ones who shape who we become in life. They are not only watching us grow but also helping us grow. Sometimes we forget about the fact that teachers are the ones that show us each day what it means to turn theory into creative and practical ideas. Due to the fact that teachers represent a beautiful and huge part of our lives, we thought that it would be a great idea to ask them some interesting questions, thus, to know them better.
