“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” – Henry Adams
As children we not only look to our parents for support and guidance, but we rely on our teachers to instill the knowledge we will need to be successful as adults. Our days are spent with them listening to and learning from them. Great teachers work tirelessly to create a safe environment where we are motivated and inspired. These incredible teachers, deserve nothing less than a celebration!
In countries around the world, we celebrate our teachers, and India is no different. Teachers’ Day in India is a day in which the children are able to celebrate the ones who are educating them and shaping their lives with aspirations for the future. It is celebrated on the 5th of September every year, in honor of Dr. Sarvepelli Radhakrishnan’s birthday. As the second President of India, he is remembered as a thinker, philosopher, giver, and most importantly, a teacher.
The orphanages supported by The Miracle Foundation, celebrated this day in style. The children danced, sang, recited poems, and performed skits in order to make their teachers smile and feel truly appreciated. At school, the children became the teachers for the day. Conducting lessons and giving the teachers a chance to sit back and learn. The children led discussions pertaining to current events, read to the class, and taught some of the courses for the day.
Teachers’ Day was not only a great way for the children to become active participants in their own education, but they had a chance to show their love and appreciation for the teachers who are committed to helping them achieve their dreams!
To the teachers who continue to work hard every day to give children around the world an opportunity and the knowledge they need to succeed, we say THANK YOU!
