    In one word, what is a teacher?

    I am working on a project and need 101 words to describe a teacher.  I have many such as mentor, counselor, helper, artist and many, many more.  However, counting them up, I am only up to 48 words.  I will be writing a hub on this, so...help a girl out!  Thanks in advance!  What words can you add to my list?

    If you mean 101 nouns to describe a teacher in  English, you're going to be hard-pressed.  However, the way out - as I see it - is to get the word teacher spelled out in 101 different languages and - problem solved!   

    You could start with the European languages.  Move on to the African. Then Indian, etc  and don't forget the unusual ones such as Welsh.  Then, of course you have all the Arabic Languages.  And if still hard unable to come up with 101, then you could turn to the various North American Indian, Australian Aboroginal and the like.

    I don't envy you the task.

      You are right I used in my below answer a similar method by applying Arabic language.
