    (an accomplishment worth talking about)?


    I always value your broad perspective. As a teacher, you have always been a candid and have the courage of your convictions. I am always learning and growing from you (an accomplishment worth talking about).

    I do not know what stuff would be workable, parentheses or semicolon. Would you help, please?

    Please see my corrections in red. Note that "candid" is an adjective, not a noun, so someone can't be "a candid". They can be candid or they can be a candid person.

    I don't know what you mean by the section in brackets so it's hard to say how you should punctuate it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    For a start, thank you. I do mean that what I have learned and grown (?) strong worth talking.

    Perhaps you could say something like "I always tell people how you have helped me learn and grow".

    It goes this way: I am always learning and growing from you (I always tell people how you have helped me learn and grow), doesn't it, please?

    Re: (an accomplishment worth talking about)?

    No, that's tautologous. I was suggesting only this version "I always tell people how you help me learn and grow" - that makes it clear that the teacher helps you to learn and grow and it also makes it clear that you talk about that fact with people.
