    has " because of " positive meaning ?

    hi all,

    I would like to know if/whether "because of" can be used for positive meaning

    ( by the way, please correct all sentences I wrote )

    for example :

    -thank you very much for your help .I became a good teacher because of you.

    You're welcome. When you post in future, please remember to use a capital letter at the beginning of every sentence, and a full stop at the end of every sentence.
