But be warned. Your teachers can trim, shape and mould or maul your minds the way they want. Ha Ha … I was a teacher too and I know.
In present times, in many countries, Teachers’ Day is a unique day for appreciating the services of teachers. It may include celebrations to honour them for their special contributions within the field of teaching or for their service in their community.
During the 20th century, the concept of celebrating Teachers’ Day took root independently in many countries. Unlike many other International Days, on Teachers’ Day people celebrate a local educator who is or was an important milestone in education.
Since 1962, India celebrates Teachers’ Day on Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan’s birthday on September 5 – a philosopher, statesman and the second President of India from 1962 to 1967; and since 1915, Argentina commemorates the death of activist, intellectual, writer, statesman and its seventh President, Domingo Faustino Sarmiento on September 11. This is the primary reason countries are celebrating this day on different dates.
