Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character, caliber, and future of an individual. If the people remember me as a good teacher, that will be the biggest honor for me.
- A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

In the World, it is said that no profession exists to compare from the teaching profession. It is one of the greatest and noblest profession ever. Teachers shape the mind of the youth and are the giver of knowledge. Without knowledge, no human can advance in this world. Teachers spread good values in children and turn them into good and responsible humans.

In India, we celebrate this day on the birthday of Dr.Saravapalli Radhakrishnan, The second president of India. He was a philosopher, a great teacher, famous among his many students.
It was his request that his birthday should be an honorable day for every teacher in the country.

Teachers are like real potters who not only give our life a shape but also enable to light like a lamp forever after dispelling the darkness from all across the world so we can light our nation. While growing the only person we give respect after our parents are our teachers. It is because the greatest lessons we come across in our lives are taught by a teacher. Even though many times we feel that they are a waste, the lessons taught by them are the values, which we need to apply in our lives.

Teachers are not limited to the compound of a school. They may come in the form of your parents, friend, soulmate and just like a companion. Teachers do not provide you only with bookish knowledge but also with their life lessons, which may come in handy in certain situations in our lives too.

Schools in Kuwait celebrate teacher’s day in different ways. The school senate takes charge of the school and the higher-grade students as teachers. Teachers are relieved of their duties for the day and are entertained by the emerging talents of the school.

When I remember a teacher who taught me, the first face which comes to my face is my 2nd-grade math teacher. Her name is Mrs. Poornalatha. I was very weak in math subject and I disliked it. but my teacher opened a new world of math to me. She taught me how to find interest in solving math.

As a result of her effort and hard work. I perform well in a subject once I disliked.

Teachers will never receive what they deserve, but for one day a year, we can at least show some appreciation for what they do. Teachers do not demand anything from you for knowledge but greet a teacher with a smile and that makes his/her day. We should respect and honor our teachers with our whole heart in our daily lives. As a famous quote cites “Without a good teacher we all are incomplete in this world”.

So this teachers day friends, let's take a pledge to even if you don’t like your teacher, don’t pass comments but treat them respect. Let us not thank our teachers on paper but wishing them with a smile.
