Greetings of the day… Are you missing your school or college? Want to appreciate your teachers for their hard work? But, You Can’t right..!! You must be remembering those golden days of school/college. I remember back then when I was a kid, I used to be so much excited for teacher’s day. We would have fun with our seniors in the classroom rather than boring lectures and after that very delicious food in mess and then to make the day more special the grand reception of our loved teachers in a beautifully decorated hall with flowers and garlands. And as We grew, finally the day came when we would be playing the role of various teachers for one day..and contribute funds for the celebration, cakes, gifts. And then there was a last day of school…most hated day ever..!!!
After schooling I realized that small things matter the most, whether those little celebrations or unwanted scolding..our teachers made us the way we are..!! they have played a very tough part to mold us into a beautiful person .we have lots of memories from scolding to being appreciated. We all love being appreciated. I still remember the day when My science Teacher loved my article on the Topic ‘vermicomposting’… and she made me speak that article loud in front of the whole class, I was at 9th cloud. But then some other day, I would get some serious scolding “what is this behavior Deepika..don’t bite your nails, you haven’t tied proper two ponies..ahha your shoes aren’t polished..where is your homework?..again you are wearing a white dress on Wednesday”. A lot of this nonsense discipline in school, Then in college, and now in my workplace. But now I totally know how important that scolding was…We must show some gratitude to our respected teachers for giving us the knowledge of everything.
But This teacher’s day ..we are stuck indoors due to COVID 19 and can’t celebrate and thank enough our teachers, for playing the role of a perfect teacher in our lives, so let’s do something to thank our teachers for their hard work with proper social distancing.
You should be innovative with simple and normal ideas..!! It must be an interesting and good plan to make your teacher happy. Here are some ideas you can plan with your batchmates or alone to bring a beautiful smile in your teacher’s face from miles away. Here we go…
“If you were successful somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life.”
– Barack Obama
No teacher wants too many frills to please them. Just a phone call is enough to make them happy. Wish them on a voice call or video call it can be a conference call with the whole gang. And try reminding them some of your or your gang’s memory..!! and tell your achievements if any, because a teacher is that person who will be happier than ever for their student’s success. and not any other day is as perfect as teacher’s day to tell them your success story.
“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
So it’s important to give a feeling of importance to your teacher because they are very important. But if you are a shy person you can draft a message and then send it. A written message can be more comfortable and expressive for some people. you can type a heartful message to appreciate the teacher. write what you liked about your teacher or what is the specialty of them. you can find tons of “HAPPY TEACHERS DAY” message ideas on google. Just edit any of them to some extent in your version.. so that it can be more realistic and send it.
“One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.”
– Malala Yousafzai
Then why we can’t do something more than basic things to thank our teachers, they do a lot of sacrifices for us…then why we can’t? We can make some cool and memorable photo or video collage for our teachers. you can just arrange some photos of your teachers with you to make an amazing photograph or a group of students holding a banner of saying “thank you” or “happy teachers day” or ” we appreciate you” kinda stuff. or can make a unique collage of refreshing memory to give some nostalgic feeling to your teacher.
Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important.
– Bill Gates
No doubt we all have classes or works from home so like this you can organize interesting meeting sessions with your whole batch and teachers at Zoom or google meetings app or any other app. where you can connect with a bunch of people and greet your teacher, you can sing for them…play some random games.., can have fun conversations like little get together or virtual party kinda thing. it may be turned out in a properly planned teacher’s day function from home.
Teachers can change lives with just the right mix of chalk and challenges.
– Joyce Meyer
A perfect idea doesn’t exist. so if you are running out of idea like me than just order some online gifts from (our store) gift cards, pens, coffee mugs or books are very easily available with proper safety. You can grab them at a discount and gift it to your teacher. I am damn sure it will make them feel joy and their day will be much more special.
These are just some very minimal gestures to make your teacher feel delighted and to tell them how they have shaped you and your future and how much adorable they are. These are more than enough just to thank them. Do not run away being shy from thanking them because it actually validates their beliefs to make a good future of students or to make a good impact on their students, although they do not need any motivation or inspiration, they already do so much for the future of the country and don’t expect grand honor. Your three word “Happy teachers day” message means a lot to them
Happy Teacher’s Day!
Stay healthy and happy.
Do you have your happy places?
