    There are a lot of teachers in my school and students life, who kept me on my toes.

    Hello,

    These are the lines from a student's answer: 'There are a lot of teachers in my school and students life, who kept me on my toes.'
    The question was: 'Have you ever worked for someone or had a teacher who liked to keep you on your toes?'

    As the student refers to his teachers at school, and he is no longer a schoolboy, and university teachers, he is at university now, which grammar tense is to be used in his answer?

    I have the following options:

    There were and there are now a lot of teachers in my life who keep me on my toes.
    There have been a lot of teachers in my life, back at school and now at university, who keep me on my toes.

    Thank you in advance.
