I'd like to ask a question: Please look at the following sentences:

They are the teachers of our school.

They are teachers of our school.

What's the difference between them? Or the second sentence is actually incorrect?

Please give me your opinion and I'll appreciate it. Thank you!

ViceidolI'd like to ask a question: Please look at the following sentences:

They are the teachers of our school. This suggests 'all of the teachers'

They are teachers of our school. This suggests 'some/a few of the teachers'

What's the difference between them? Or the second sentence is actually incorrect?

Please give me your opinion and I'll appreciate it. Thank you!
Instead of using 'of' our school, I'd suggest using 'at' or 'from'.

Thank you, Yankee. If possible, could you or anyone explain why the teachers means "all of the teachers", while teachers means "some of the teachers"?

For example, "teachers" in the following sentence means "all the teachers around the world" or "teachers in general":

Teachers should be patient with their students.

That's why I cannot figure it out. Could you enlighten me with this question? Thank you very much~!
