I have a teacher who told me to keep them and another who said id learn better without them...

I feel the latter is better because im finding it extremely easy to play with numbers and music isnt supposed to be easy when growing; just like any skill im learning it cant be easy to progress and get into a higher level.

In simple music that sticks to a '5 finger' hand position, some beginners will try to avoid reading the notes by reading the fingerings instead! It doesn't worry me too much. Perhaps it delays proper reading by a tiny amount, but it CAN'T persist once extended hand positions and changes of position become necessary. And a beginner can also be most ingenious in finding convoluted ways to mis-finger a simple passage! Don't worry about it. As you progress, you will encounter music with only occasional fingering instructions (which you would generally be well-advised to obey). Until then, whatever enables fluent, well-fingered playing is good.
