thanking teachers #1 (permalink) Sun Nov 10, 2013 0:18 am   thanking teachers
 

a. I want to thank all my teachers.
b I want to thank all those who have been my teachers.

Can I use (a) if I don't have teachers now?

If I use (a) and I do have teachers now, would the sentence imply that I am not thanking the teachers I had in the past?

Can I use (b) if I have teachers now?

Many Thanks,
Azz

Both the sentences would mean all your teachers, present and past (so far). I don't think it would offend any of your teachers if you use them.
