From the moment we step into our nursery classrooms, away from our parents, until the time we graduate, teachers guide us throughout, gently and firmly. When parents cannot be there, it is your children’s teacher who takes care of them, teaches them humanity and acts as a role model to look up to.
No number of thank you cards, flowers or gifts can ever be enough to express the gratitude for the innumerable contributions of teachers in our lives. How can we forget about the greatest teachers our country had ever had? From Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan to Dr A.P.J Abdul Kalam, India has always had inspirational educationists, lighting the path of students across the country.
Celebrated in honour of Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan’s birthday, who had asked people to dedicate the day for teachers and mentors, Teachers’ Day is celebrated on September 5 every year. Many countries mark the day a month later, on October 5, which is the day selected by UNESCO to honour teachers.
Our teachers, who have helped us become what we are today, play such a big role in our lives. Even during the pandemic, teachers are doing an exemplary job by taking the virtual route to help students access education- from using virtual reality, hosting interactive lessons or even checking in with their students. There’s a lot we should be thanking our teachers for, especially this year.
‘Guru-Shishya Parampara’ is also an important part of our Indian culture. So this Teachers’ Day, it is important you remember to appreciate the guiding forces and helpers–the ones who gave you the wings to fly!
Here are some thoughtful wishes and messages you can share with your teachers and express gratitude:
Our parents gave us life and it was you who taught us how to live it. You introduced honesty, integrity, and passion to our character. Happy teacher’s day 2020!
Thank you, teachers, for making online classes so enjoyable.
I found guidance, friendship, discipline, and love, everything in one person. And that person is you. Happy Teachers’ Day!
If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother, and the teacher. – Dr APJ Abdul Kalam
