  • No.  A sentence has a subject and a verb and expresses a complete thought.  That's not a sentence; it's a fragment.

  • You have no sentence, because you have no verb. Try “taught” instead of “teachingl

  • It's not a sentence because it doesn't have a full verb. Is this a caption for a photograph? Captions don't have to be full sentences.

    If you use a dash before the interjection "and a great friend", use a dash after it, too. Or use commas on both sides. It's "ins and outs".

  • Not even close and the punctuation isn't correct either.

  • Nope, an apostrophe does NOT make a plural in English - where did you get the idea that it does?  (It's "ins and outs", not "in's and out's".)  And it not even a sentence - it's a phrase - it would be a sentence if you said "is teaching", but you just said "teaching".
