Teachers are those unique personalities who shape our life, who show us way and make our dreams come true. Any thing said in praise of teachers is much less compared to what they do in our life. First of all start with the name of this great personality Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was born in a Telugu family in a village near Thiruttani India. Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan became the Vice President of Indian republic when Dr. Rajendra Prasad was the President of India. When Dr. Rajendra Prasad died, Radhakrishnan became the President of India.
Teachers are personalities who are regarded as the back-bone of our society. Teacher is a mentor who always did his/her best to shape a good human being in us. They make great contribution to build up the character of students and help them to become ideal citizens of our country. Our parents bring us up (nurture) and give us essential things like food for our survival, but teachers arouse our hearts with light of knowledge and remove all obstacle in our way. The study that we do at our school and college build the foundation of our character and shape our personality.
The students are the identity of the teacher. In Man ki bath PM Modi narrated a story of an Anganwadi worker. She had barely studied till the 5th class. So what she did was, with an old saree she had - she made small pieces and taught the students how to use a handkerchief. Just imagine how a huge lesson this was - to stay clean. Being a teacher is not like any other career. It is something different. Today is the day to recognise, and honour our teachers. I bow to all the teachers. It is the teachers who make the generations
Teaching is a profession to inspire a generation. Ordinary teachers tell students what life is all about. Extraordinary teachers like you let students discover life on their own while watching over their backs.
The most intriguing part of being a teacher is that you never know how you will eventually shape the lives of your students. For every student, you are shaping not only their lives, but the lives of their husbands, wives, children, grandchildren and every single person they interact with in the future. Just imagine, you have the power to affect so many lives.
The most wonderful part of being a teacher is to think that many years down the line, there will be someone, somewhere out there, thinking about how lucky they were to be taught by a teacher as wonderful as yourself. Technology has made it easier for students to learn with devices new, but nothing can come close to the experience of being taught by an inspirational teacher like you.
Dear students, It is easy to take your teachers for granted but it is difficult to forget their inspirational words. It is easy to misbehave in class but it is difficult to overlook their motivational advice. It is easy to spot annoyance or anger in their behaviour but it is difficult to realise the patience they have while dealing with you.
Dear Teachers, Thank you for being a teacher. Thank you for being a part of Holy Cross. Thank you for sharing the heritage of Holy Cross in educating Heart and Mind. Thank you for you have made difference in the lives of your students which you may never even know.
Joining with the students, guardians and the administration I wish you all dear teachers a very happy teachers day. Gods Blessings on you as you teach , form and inspire the students entrusted to you.
Happy Teachers Day.
