    Respected Teachers,

    Re: Reason of/for

    NOT A TEACHER BUT A STUDENT LIKE YOU,

    I checked up your word in a dictionary as it is important to me. What I got is the correct preposition to use after "reason" is "for". Don't say the reason "of" something — say the reason "for" something.
